Ok so in a nutshell, I want to make a video that has 2 pictures that overlap eachother, and the overlap is animated, like this:

enter image description here

The clips are in the VSE:The VSE

And the blend file(with photos): https://www.dropbox.com/s/xiztxtvxtzmvm5n/Unicycle.zip?dl=0
But I want to add in a black line right where the 2 clips meet. Help please?


There is no hard edge built in to the wipe effect. Only blur width. You could make a black bar .PNG then use the Transform effect to rotate it at the same time. You could use this addon http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?280731-VSE-Transform-tool it makes interacting withe the VSE transforms much easier.

  • $\begingroup$ So what I want to do is make a black line as an object in a different scene, and have the line have the same animation as the mask $\endgroup$ – DragonHeart Sep 26 '14 at 1:12
  • $\begingroup$ Thats right. But you could make the line with the transform effect applied to a color strip, by scaling it down vertically then rotating it. $\endgroup$ – 3pointedit Sep 26 '14 at 6:45
  • $\begingroup$ Ohhhh. Ok that makes sense. Thanks for the help! $\endgroup$ – DragonHeart Sep 26 '14 at 16:40
