Clock wipe

A transition used to progressively reveal the subsequent shot in a way that resembles the swiping of hands around the clock.

In video production, a clock wipe is a transition used to progressively reveal the subsequent shot. The transition involves sweeping around a certain point in the frame, such as the center, in order to conceal and display information on either side of it. It is called a "clock" wipe because it is visually similar to the sweeping hands of an analog clock. Because of this similarity, it is often used to indicate that time has passed between the first shot and the next.
