    wipe down


      i'm using premiere elements 12. I have an image of text and i want to use a transition of WIPE DOWN (so it appears gradually). but there is no such transition or effect. (even movie maker has it).

          From what you wrote, it sounds like you are trying to use a video transition as a video effect.


          I would suggest that you do not need a Wipe Down transition (which Premiere Elements does not have anyway) if all you want to do is to have your text appear from top to bottom in a wipe down (in) manner.


          Have you looked at applying a Four-Point Garbage Matte to the Timeline text file (a Garbage Matte point at each of the 4 points of the frame) and then keyframing the Position properties of the points at the top left and top right of the frame downward? Do you know how to do that? If not, I can post the how to details for you.


          Please review and consider and then let me know if I have interpreted your question correctly.


          Thank you.

            After thought comment....you say that even Movie Maker has the "wipe down transition".


            What have you used it on - videos or photos?


            I am assuming that your text image is a photo. Is that correct? If so, I see no way in Movie Maker you are

            going to apply Movie Maker's wipe down transition to a still. Video, yes. still, no. Please let me know if you

            have done it and how.


            I have Movie Maker 2012.
