What’s this guide for?
What’s cooler than a professional fade-in/fade-out effect designed to seamlessly transition your viewers from one scene of a video to the other?
A fade-in/fade-out Audio effect to emphasize the transition. Think transition inception. Mind. Blown!
The step-by-step guide for adding the fade-in/fade-out effect
Create a new project.
Upload an audio clip you’d like to edit. Then select it.
Click the Sound button.
You’ll see a menu that offers choosing a starting point for adding the effect.
By the way, you can change the volume of your whole clip from here.
Pick either the fade-in or the fade-out option. Make sure your audio file is not longer than your video clip, because in this case Fade out will not work. If that is your case, you need to trim your audio file to make sure the duration of it is not longer than of your video and then apply Fade Out.
Set the duration for the effect, but note that it can’t last for longer than 3 seconds.
PS: Be creative. Play around with the volume settings and add a bit of drama into your videos! Instant silence in the middle of the clip can be as powerful as Tan-TAN-TAAAN!
