Chapter 10. Mixing Audio > Creating Cross-Fades

Creating Cross-Fades

A cross-fade occurs when one audio clip fades out (grows silent) while another audio clip fades in (becomes audible). You can manipulate fade handles manually to create a cross-fade, or you can use Premiere's cross-fade tool to create simple cross-fades quickly. Incidentally, this technique also works with the video fade line.

To use the cross-fade tool:

1.
Overlap two audio clips in time, and display the red fade line (Figure 10.29).

Figure 10.29. Overlap two audio clips in time, and display the red fade line.


2.
In the Timeline window, select the cross-fade tool (Figure 10.30).

Figure 10.30. Select the cross-fade tool.


3.
Click one audio clip.

4.
Click the other audio clip.

When you position the pointer over the second clip, the cross-fade tool appears. When you click, Premiere creates a standard cross-fade (Figure 10.31).

Figure 10.31. Click one audio clip and then the overlapping audio clip. Clicking the second clip creates a standard cross-fade automatically.
