Premade animated transparent mask images for strip transitions?

Hi. I’ve been using Blender for some video editing lately and learned a way to use an image strip of transparent images to make an animated transition between two video strips.

So now I’m wondering, are there premade image sequences of common video wipes somewhere that I could just download to use? I’ve tried a few searches, but maybe I’m not searching for the right term.

Look for SMPTE wipes, otherwise just make your own by animating shapes white on black or shades of grey in 3D view. Remember that you can also animate Mask shapes in the UV Image editor and use those as VSE strip masks.

Thanks a lot for both ideas.

Check out this little tutorial I made about using masks in the VSE, the usefull bit is about 2 mins in:
