Wipes for video

I was wondering if anyone has managed to find a way to quickly create the 3d wipes/transitions that we see on sports footage, the ones that Sky use a lot.

I know I'd need a 3D package to get the specific emblem or whatever I want and starting from scratch, is there one that's quick and easy to use to start out on and secondly, how do I create the alpha channel so that I can see the footage underneath.

How do I create and alpha channel in normal video footage to get the same effect? Is there something I can do when shooting the footage or can I leave it until I bring it into Premiere Pro or After Effects to create it?

Any help is appreciated.
