How to Add Fade-in/Fade-out Effect to Video

What’s this guide for?

The fade-in/fade-out animation is every video editor’s trump card. Few effects look as good as ninjaing your way into the shadows.

Alas, to our dismay, Animotica doesn’t have a separate feature for enabling fade-in/fade out in one click. That doesn’t mean you can’t do it though. All it takes is this guide and a tiny pinch of creative thinking.


The step-by-step guide for adding the fade-in/fade-out effect

  1. Start with creating a new project.

  2. Then pick the clips you’d like to edit.

  3. Select the first one and click on the + (plus) button.

  4. From there proceed to add a color clip.

  5. Set the duration of the clip for 1 second (or for however long you want the effect to last)

  6. Add Opacity Transition between the first clip and the clip holding your color. The transition duration must last for 1 second.

  7. Boom, you’ve just added your first fade-in/fade-out effect!

  8. Rinse and repeat for as many times as you need it.

Pro tip: Click the + button to add a white color clip. Set the Duration for 3 seconds. Add the Opacity Transition with the Transition duration of 2s between the clips.
