Powerpoint 2010 Animation wipe - hard edge?

My issue is around the Wipe animation in a PowerPoint 2010 chart

I am drawing a chart with daily entries over 10 years and I want it to draw from the left to right. It draws with a soft edge but I would like a hard edge. Is it possible to change it?

Some posts in 2011 suggest this is hard coded and not changeable.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unfortunately it is still not possible to change this.

The answer was to the point but didn't move me forward at all. I might have been helpful to have a work around
Just FYI, there isn't a workaround other than using a different animation altogether.
