Cross-Fading Audio

As I mentioned in Chapter 5, “Adding the Right Transition,” the dissolve is the most common video transition (barring a straight cut). The same holds true for audio. Premiere allows you to add simple audio fades between two independent audio clips very easily. Keep in mind that when cross-fading between audio clips, you need to have them on separate audio tracks, and they must overlap to create the blend (see Figure 8.21). The duration of the overlapping portions determines the duration of the cross-fade. Longer overlapping portions create a slow, gradual fade. Shorter overlapping portions create a quick, more abrupt fade.

Figure 8.21. Overlap audio tracks to have them fade between each other.
