Fader Bar


The Fader Bar lets you Fade-In and Fade-Out videos on an adhoc basis. Adhoc fades can be useful when you want to pause a video to make an announcement, then resume the video where it was paused. Fades apply to video, audio, and image Media Items.

By default, audio volume will fade at the same rate as the video, but you can exclude volume from fades in the Media Item Options if desired. And the video will automatically pause on Fade-Out and resume on Fade-In, but this behavior can also be changed in the Screens(2) Options. The Fade-In and Fade-Out buttons that will perform a smooth fade based on the current Fade Duration. Or you can use the slider bar for manual fade.

Fade Duration

The Duration is the amount of time it will take for the fade value to change from 100% to 0%. The longer the duration, the slower the fade. Fade values used are the Master Fade-In/Out Durations set in the Media Item Options.
