Fade out the end (bob-tarrel)


Recommended Posts

I'm new and using the newest version, but I find I still can't fade out at the end.

My last clip is a blank clip with text.  The X transistion button will not allow me to increase the 1 second duration (I want a gradual fade over 10 seconds.)  So I added a blank black clip to take me to the end of the music in the audio track.  But I still can't make the transistion from the text clip to the black clip longer than 1 second.

Is this a problem with text clips?  I have no difficulties with the transistion durations for video clips.  And fading in and out of audio clips is easy.

Can you tell me what I'm not doing to get a gradual fade out at the end of my video?

You want your text to fade out over 10 seconds?  From your description it seems all you need to do is to drag your text clip out so it finishes where your audio finishes. The text clip will be on Video Track 2 by default. Click the downward sloped icon at the right hand end of the text clip and choose the Fade through Black transition. You can alter the duration to 10 seconds. If the text clip is actually less than 10 seconds it's not a problem as the text clip on Track 2 will fade out to black whatever its length. 

If the text clip is more than 10 seconds after it has been pulled out just enter 10 in the transition duration box and the last 10 seconds will be the amount faded as shown by the transition bar at the top of the clip........


Timeline should look similar to above......Track 1 clip plays......Text opens on black background and last 10 seconds fades out to black as the audio on Audio Track 2 finishes. There is no transition X as text is on Track 2.

If you drag text down to Track 1 you will see a transition X and a transition can be added between the clip and the text. Time line will now look similar to this...


Clip plays.......text fades in.........text fades out to end with Audio Track 3.
