Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Changing the Shape of a Crossfade

Changing the Shape of a Crossfade

A crossfade, after all, is nothing but a fade-out of one event and the fade-in of another. Therefore, you can edit a crossfade much like any other fade. Crossfades have a few additional editing options as well.

To edit the shape of a crossfade

1.
After you create a crossfade, select either or both events that are part of the fade.

2.
Select Audio > Crossfade, or double-click the events where they overlap.

3.
When the Crossfade dialog box opens (Figure 8.49), select a curve to adjust the fade-in, fade-out, or both; or select either of the check boxes: Equal Gain and Equal Power.

Figure 8.49. The Crossfade panel.


In Figure 8.50, Equal Power is selected.

Figure 8.50. The Equal Power box is selected, creating a preset fade curve for both fade-in and fade-out.


4.
Click Close.

When you return to the Project window, the crossfade will reflect the changes made in the Crossfade panel (Figure 8.51).

Figure 8.51. The fade curves have changed now that Equal Power is selected in the Crossfade panel.
