Paint Drip Transition?

I have a client editing a video about an artist and she wants what she is calling a "paint drip transition".

Anyone know of such a transition for FCP?

Thanks.

Check out ebay.

Search Video Toaster

Watch out for the falling sheep.


Or go outside. Take some black paint. And a piece of white foamcore. Roll camera, drip paint until all the white is gone. Take the resulting video and apply a Luma key.

Bingo.

You could always use a Gradient Wipe transition:

There's also a rockin' free font called "WC Rhesus A Bta" that's composed entirely of paint-like spatters.

You could quickly animate a few of these spatters using the Text generator in a Sequence (white on black), then use the "Travel Matte - Luma" Composite Mode to reveal your incoming clip. It would end up laid out on the timeline like this:
