Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Fading audio clips in and out, part of iMovie for iOS Essential Training (2014).
…There may be times where you want the audio in a clip…to fade in at the beginning or fade out at the end.…Maybe you want to keep the beginning of the clip, but right when it starts there's…a loud unwanted noise like cough or a truck going by or something like that.…So, let me show you how easy it is to add fades to audio in iMovie.…I'm going to use this panning shot of the river for this example.…Let's listen to it once.…Now, you may have heard the audio actually did fade out at the end.…That's because audio fades are built in, when you have…fade in from black or fade out to black selected.…Let me just turn that off for the moment.…
And now we will have a more abrupt ending to the audio.…So, to add fades, first make sure the audio wave forms are visible.…Again, you can only do this on the iPad and it's done with this button over here.…Then tap to select the clip.…Now, in order to fade the clip, we have…to detach the audio portion from the video portion.…I'll make sure Audio is selected down here…and over here on the right I'll tap Detach.…
