Neophyte, please look at this

I'm running this in MM2.1, but it does not have hard edge but a particulate one.
On FX archive you have a hard edge one, what I missed?

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{DE75D012-7A65-11D2-8CEA-00A0C9441E20}">
<Transition name="snake Swipe 301" iconid="42">
<Param name="MaskNum" value="301" />
</Transition>
<Transition name="water Shorz 352" iconid="43">
<Param name="MaskNum" value="352" />

<Transition name="snake Hwipe 301" iconid="42">
<Param name="MaskNum" value="301" />
<Param name="BorderWidth" value="0"/>

<Param name="MaskNum" value="352" />

*There are 10 bands that run this wipe I would like to have 20...

Thank you,

I think you would have to create a custom gradient mask to change the number of bands to 20, as there's not a parameter for setting the width of the bands.

I don't recall doing anything special to get a hard edge for the one in the FX Archive. What was the name of the one you were referring to?

Well, the demo of sempte wipes 301/352 show hard edge.
but mine 301/352 doesn't in mm.

You still got mm2.1 running? can you test my xml?
My current NLE do not have such wipes so I'm making B/W video mask with MM.

Thank you.

I have version 2.6 installed on my system. Click here for a sample video of your snake Swipe 301 transition.

That is strange. Do you have version 2.1 rather than 2.6 installed on your system?

I have them both, and just now I tested the snakes running 2.6 and it's the same.
no hard edge.
Strange...
I did modify the 2.1 res dll trans icons bmp years ago, but not the 2.6 one, however I can't see why it will mater.

Please send me your email address using the Contact Neo page on the FX Archive as I want to send you some gradient images to use for custom transitions to see if that resolves the problem.

Thanks Neo, but I must drop this for now.
My Mboard died yesterday, I'm now on a loan system with 7/64 and 10/64
I have a project coming next week so I have to hold this research. I don't have any MM on curent system.
I guess I'll be back to this in the future.
