Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating a wipe, part of Flash Professional: Animation Tips and Tricks.
There is another simple way to transition between two scenes and that's to use a…wipe, and use the mask, in this case, to create the effect. And this is where we…simply wipe the screen from one state, one scene, to the other. And this is pretty…simple; can't really go wrong with it. And it's used a lot in some films; the…Star Wars movies use this quite a bit.…So let's have a look with the pasteboard activated, so I can see the entire…Stage beyond the visible area. And let's just take a look at the mask, and…that's all that's happening.…
Now I've actually done a slight shape tween on that mask so that you can see…it's not just moving in a completely straight line, which looks a little bit…flat. And now when we see this with the area that's been unmasked, it feels a…bit like a page turn.…And the cool thing about this is you can make your own shapes; you are not…limited to just boring left-right mask. You can go up-down, and granted there…are a plenty of these in After Effects and other programs as well.…
