Audio fade ins and outs

From: Compressor 3 Essential Training

Video: Audio fade ins and outs

Just as we can do a Fade-in and Fade-out with our video, we can do a Fade-in and Fade-out with the audio. I've applied an audio setting here for AC3 audio. Click on the Filters pane; one, two, three, the fourth one in says Filters sort of gives it way and then click on the Audio tab. If you want to add the video filter, click on the Video tab, if you want to add an audio filter, click on the Audio tab. But why, you say, are there no video filters here and the answer is because we only have an audio setting selected. So it's a smart list down here.

Audio fade ins and outs

Just as we can do a Fade-in and Fade-out with our video, we can do a Fade-in and Fade-out with the audio. I've applied an audio setting here for AC3 audio. Click on the Filters pane; one, two, three, the fourth one in says Filters sort of gives it way and then click on the Audio tab. If you want to add the video filter, click on the Video tab, if you want to add an audio filter, click on the Audio tab. But why, you say, are there no video filters here and the answer is because we only have an audio setting selected. So it's a smart list down here.

It only lists the filters that are relevant to the setting that you have up above. So I click on Audio, click on Fade In/Out. To turn a filter on, you check it, to turn a filter off, you uncheck it. So checking is how you toggle the filter on or off. The duration is expressed not in seconds and frames, but in seconds and hundreds of a second. So if I wanted to do a one-and-a-half second fade up, I would say, 1.5 that's one-and-a-half second fade up. When I play this, listen to our background fade.

We do a Fade In of a second-and-a-half or we could do a Fade Out of, say two seconds and now when we do a Fade Out at the end... So to do an Audio Fade In, you adjust the duration here, to do an Audio Fade Out, you adjust the duration here. If you need to have it not fade all the way out or all the way in, you would adjust the Fade In Gain here and the Fade Out Gain so that it fades up to say 50% or fades up to about 70% so it doesn't fade full or doesn't fade up full.

Very, very similar to how the Fade Ins and Fade Outs work in the video section, now we can also do the same thing with audio.
