Apple Final Cut Pro: Assembling the Alpha Transition in Final Cut Pro 7

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Transitions

So, how does the Alpha transition work sans layers? The user drags pre-built animated matte elements to three clip wells. The pre-built elements include: an animated logo or object that moves through screen, an animated matte that isolates the logo or object, and an animated wipe pattern that smoothes the clip transition underneath the moving logo or object. See the Final Cut User Manual for source element creation guidelines.
