Placer with Transition Layer

This layer performs the same function as the Placer but applies a transition while switching.

If the source used in this layer is a different aspect ratio than the document and is set to letterbox, the underlying layers will show through where this layer does not cover. To show black instead, open the Debug Inputs of this layer and disable “Use Alpha Path”.

Group Parameter Function
Content Destination This is the source to be displayed by this layer.
Show as Because the selected source may not fit to the document dimensions you can specify how it should be placed. There are 3 option available: Fullscreen, Letterbox and 1:1. All options preserve the original aspect ratio. Please read the description below.
Manual Control Enabling this reveals a slider parameter to manually control the progress of the transition. The In Transition in the section below is used.
Timing This defines the curve applied to the transition. Selecting an Easy option makes the beginning or end of the transition gradually ramp up or down in speed.
In Transition Type You can setup how the layer should appear when switched to Live. There are six possible values: Cut (show immediately), Dissolve (fade in), Wipe, Flip, Cube or Page Curl.
Duration If you choose a transition other than Cut, specify the duration of the transition.
Direction If you choose a transition other than Cut or Dissolve, this sets the direction of the transition.
Softness For a Wipe, you can set the amount of feathering on the edge of the wipe.
Out Transition Same as Incoming If enabled, the outgoing transition will inherit all the parameters of the incoming transition, but the direction will be the reverse of how it entered. Disable this to reveal separate settings.
Show as… Example Description
Fullscreen The source gets placed so that all of the screen will be covered.
Letterbox This option will place the source so that it is completely visible.
1:1 This option will make the source scale to 100% of its original dimensions. It will be a 1:1 pixel ratio regardless of the document size.
