You can't customize a left/right transition to go up and down.
However, using a grayscale pattern and the Gradient Wipe, you can create transition in any direction or pattern you'd like. All you have to do is provide it an illustration and it will base the shape and direction of its wipe on your illustration, moving from black to white.
I illustrate how to use the Gradient Wipe in my book Amazon, if you're interested.
Hi Steve Thank you fro your reply. I know that you can not customize the wipe ( and there is no set wipe that wipes up and down on this package) I did try your suggestion but it keep going into a straight cut so I am not sure what I am doing wrong. It seems a little odd that there are so many wipes and transitions going left to right but none going up and down. Where can I find your book ?
Hi again Steve, I managed to get the transition to do its thing but I am looking for a simple "cube spin" but in a horizontal motion. Is there a wipe or transition in Elements 10 that will do this? thanks
Yes. The Gradient Wipe.
As I said, you can use any black-to-white pattern for the gradient and the Gradient Wipe will create custom wipe based on it.
To create top-to-bottom wipe, you simply use a gradient grayscale pattern that is black at the top and white at the bottom.
My web site, Muvipix.com, created a tutorial on using the Gradient Wipe and you can see it on YouTube. I also detail how to use it in my books.
