The heart wipe is a wipe that takes the shape of a growing or shrinking heart. Used to impart a sense of "love" or "friendship." This convention was overused in the 1980's and is now generally considered tacky. The heart wipe is still used in wedding, graduation, and bar mitzvah videos, among others, as it has now passed from stylistic into the realm of standard convention.
