Fade help

Hey guys,

I am currently trying to loop a song with the introduction and I was wondering, is there any way to adjust that white fade line that comes uo, so that it doesnt end in the bottom corner in silence and maybe move it up the clip so that it ends very quietly instead of silently?

T.I.A

Well... I guess you could use a volume envelope instead.

I think you can simply lift the fade floor, try grabbing the end of the fade and move it up a bit, I know you can lower the fade ceiling. Mark

Nope - bottom can't be raised. I just double-checked.

Well, you can probably trick it by making the audio track longer than the video track. Then your fade will extend out beyond the video track's end. Sort of an L cut for audio. But, I like Edward's volume envelope better.

Oh well.. I second the use of envelopes then. The are really easy to use and will do exactly what you want although I don't think you get those nice exponential decay curves as you do with the fades. M

Sure you can. Just right-click the nodes and pick one of the various fade types.

Doesn't a volume envelope go through the entire project, is there a way to make it only occur in a certain part?

It does indeed go though the entire project but, as long as you remember to add a node at the end of the "certain part" to bring it back to normal level (0.0 db) after changing it as desired, it's usually not a problem.

So, there is no way to bypass that at all, being that it goes through everything?

Well, you could put some audio on a separate track without the envelope.

The whole point of the volume envelope is that you can add nodes to adjust as needed. So if only one section needs lowering, for instance, just put two new nodes on the left of that section, two on the right of that section, and then lower it during that section. Then nothing else will be affected.

If you insist, like Guy said - you can put that event on it's own track and adjust it individually. There's no limit to the number of audio tracks you can have so break it up however much you want.
