We create and control intense transient waveforms by compressing in space and time optical pulses down to a single half-cycle, nearly 1 femtosecond (1 fs = $10^{-15}$ s) in duration. By measuring the optical waveform using an in-situ attosecond (1 as = $10^{-18}$ s) technique we confirm the pulse reshaping. We use the intense transient as a source for generating isolated attosecond pulses from both gases and condensed matter. Furthermore, we develop a general single-shot technique to directly and in real-time measure electric field waveforms.
