View Full Version : Audio Crossfades

I must be missing the obvious, but when I'm dropping two clips over each other to make a dissolve, the audio dissolves also.
Is there a way to defeat this feature? Sometimes I don't want it to.

I don't think there's a global preference for it, but on a clip-by-clip basis you unselect "auto" for the audio fader boxes in the edit properties panel for audio.

I seem to remember there use to be an option in preferences to turn the auto fade on and off but now it's gone. I would like to see this option return in preferences as well as keeping it on a per clip basis.

Thanks for jogging my aging memory.
It's there in the "Advanced" audio settings on a per clip basis. I remember Paul L. showing me this a while back.
Gotta love this forum!!!

Another way to have your video dissolve and not your audio, is to "unlock" the video and audio streams. I've been doing several news sweeps projects this week that have a combination of narration and sound on tape bites. For me, this works fine.
