Chapter 5. Basic Editing > Working with Clip Overlays

Working with Clip Overlays

As discussed in Chapter 3, the Timeline window has a button you can activate to show clip overlays. In the case of video, this overlay displays the video's opacity, and in the case of audio, it displays the audio's level or loudness. Keyframe indicators are added with the Pen tool. Dragging these indicators up and down changes these parameters.

You can also change the linear aspect of the opacity changes with the Pen Smooth tool. You activate it from the Tools Palette or by pressing P three times. You can use the Pen Smooth tool to modify how these keyframes act with each other, as shown in Figure 5.8. Here the fade-up on the clip starts quickly and slows as it gets near full opacity. You can also add a keyframe with the Pen tool and Ctrl-click it to transform it into a smooth version, as shown in Figure 5.9. You can also clear it using this menu.
