Red Giant Universe 2.2 released

Press release 2017-11-10 10:15 article  > Software

With a focus on transitions, the Universe 2.2 update includes 11 new transitions and updates to 2 existing effects. Also included – support for a new host application: Avid Media Composer.

With this update, there are now over 75 Red Giant Universe tools, supported across 8 host-applications.




11 new transitions:

  • VHS Transition: A transition that mimics the effect that occurs when a VCR has been used to record over pre-existing footage.
  • Retrograde Transition: A transition that uses real scans of 16mm and 8mm film to create an authentic film strip transition.
  • Carousel Transition: A transition that mimics advancing to the next slide in an old slide projector.
  • Flicker Cut: A transition that rapidly cuts between two clips or a solid color, and which can invert the clips or add fades.
  • Camera Shake Transition: A transition that mimics camera shake while it transitions between clips.
  • Channel Surf: A transition that mimics the distortion you’d get by changing the channel on a cathode ray tube TV.
  • Channel Blur: A transition that blurs each of the RGB channels separately for a unique chromatic effect.
  • Linear Wipe: A classic linear wipe with the addition of wipe mirroring, as well as an inner/outer stroke with glow on the wipe border.
  • Shape Wipe: A transition that uses an ellipse, rectangle or star shape to move between 2 pieces of footage. Includes control over points, size, stroke and fill.
  • Color Mosaic: A Transition that overlays a variety of colors in a mosaic pattern as it transitions between 2 clips.
  • Clock Wipe: A classic radial wipe transition with feathering and the option for a dual clock wipe.



  • VHS: This update includes new VHS noise samples,  VHS style text, timecode and function icons (like play, FF, Rewind), updated presets, and updated defaults for better results upon application.
  • Retrograde: This update includes a small but valuable addition that allows Retrograde to use the Original aspect ratio of your footage for the effect.
