Effects make any show look more professional and make it
more interesting. Probably the most useful and widely used effect is a fade
effect where the screen fades between on clip to another.
To add a fade effect to an existing clip bring up the popup
menu by right clicking on the clip and then select effects.
This will bring up the effects dialog where you can choose
from a number of effects.
We want a fade effect so click on “Fade”. You will
also need to set a speed for the effect as the default is 0 sec which means the
effect will happen so quickly you will not see it. I recommend you set the
speed to about 0.7sec. Now if you click on “OK” and run the effect you will see
the effect fade in.
