Screen Fade Wipes

Different fade effects using icons and images

 

The standard fade to black on Project Spark is achieved with the fade tile. However, you can also wipe to black using the Peephole icon, which will create a slowly decreasing circular view of your scene. This is how you do it.

Note: I have used the black tile, however the black chosen for Project Spark is more a dark grey. Recommend instead of the black tile – use new color and create black (0,0,0,1)

To change the speed of the transition change the increment and decrement number.

Instructions

Circular transitional wipe from small to big (opening sequence)

WHEN DO [numvar:size][=][clamp][max][70][min][5][size]
WHEN DO [numvar:size][increment by][1]
WHEN DO [display][Peephole small][screen center][scale][numvar:size][black]

 

Circular transitional wipe from big to small (closing sequence)

WHEN DO [numvar:size][=][clamp][max][70][min][4][size]
WHEN [once] DO [numvar:size][=][70]
WHEN DO [numvar:size][decrement by][1]
WHEN DO [display][Peephole small][screen center][scale][numvar:size][black]
WHEN [numvar:size][=][4] DO [fade]

You can also use a prop or icon as a shape for your transition to or from a black screen.

Various shaped icon transitional wipe from big to to small (opening sequence)

WHEN DO [numvar:size][=][clamp][max][70][min][0.1][size]
WHEN [once] DO [numvar:size][=][70]
WHEN DO [numvar:size][decrement by][1]
WHEN [until][numvar:size][=][0.1] DO [display][choose from icon or prop gallery][screen center][scale][numvar:size][black]

You may need to alter the minimum and maximum clamp for best effects
