About the video toaster. My favorite Toaster wipe was the one where the sheep fall from the sky and then fly back up. I think it made it into 90% of the videos made at my High Schools TV station. The TV station being a video toaster and a camera in the smallest class room in the building that is.
Ahh, the sheep wipe... I have heard much about it but have never seen it personally. I do remember watching a dance program in a church several years ago where they used snowflake wipes between every shot... in the middle of the summer!?
