Lesson 2. Ballet Special Bumper > Setting a fade-out

Setting a fade-out

To make this layer fade out at the end of the composition, you will set Opacity keyframes.

  1. Set the current time to 09:20 by dragging the blue current-time marker in the Time Layout window, by pressing Ctrl+G (Windows) or Command+G (Mac OS), or by clicking the time display.

  2. Click the triangle to the left of the Sugar.mov layer in the Time Layout window, and then click the triangle to the left of Transform to expand the outline, displaying the Transform Properties for this layer.

  3. Click the stopwatch ( ) next to Opacity to set an Opacity keyframe. Leave the Opacity value at 100%.

  4. Set the current time to 10:10, and then click the underlined Opacity value, enter 0, and click OK.

    Do not click the stopwatch again. A new keyframe is set automatically whenever you change a property value.

    When you are done working with a layer's properties, it's a good idea to clean up the Time Layout window by collapsing the layer outline.

  5. Click the triangle to the left of Sugar.mov to collapse the layer outline. Save the project.
