"Add Wipes" adds an almost endless number of wipe type transistions. Using a function written by Stickboy and modified to behave a little more like the Dissolve transition function,(sound optional but not ignored).
Making your own wipe style transitions is easy. The ones included in the FilmCutter download are low res jpgs and work amazingly well on much higher resolutions.
Making your own masks requires following a naming convention which of most importance is the "w_" prefix. FilmCutter assumes that the masks are JPEGs (*.jpg). The _4_3 aspect ratio part is optional. When using a circular mask, a 4:3 perfect circle used on a 16:9 scene will result in an elliptical pattern, not that there is anything wrong with that. So make your 16:9 masks, 16:9 to start with, the function resolves the differences.
