I came across this transition while playing 1080 snowboarding, and thought it was very effective, especially for fade to blacks. You can view the transitions on this video (http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=ASe_L97lh90) at 0:08, 0:26, 2:10, and 2:44. As far as transitions go, this style is pretty good, and I could see it being used in many different genres of videos effectively. I want to fiddle around with this idea, see if I can create something like it. Any thoughts?
Success all around.
To view an example of the transitions, I created this youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AFLxS-VwgM&feature=channel_page - I ended up creating some fractal ones, which ended up being my favourite.
You can download the files here: http://www.kde-files.org/content/show.php/Fractal%2BSinus+Luma+Wipes?con... To install them, place the images in this folder: /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdenlive/lumas
To install them, just open up kdenlive, and goto Settings > Download New Lumas
