Avid and the Fade Effect Button

You need to become very familiar with the Fade Effect button in you Avid editing application. I use this several times on each program that I edit and it not only makes for uniform edits but saves you a lot of time.

I use it so much that I mapped the fade FX button to my keyboard, Shift+F. Once you make your title or clip you can apply this to any line that you want to fade in, out or both, just position the indicator in the title segment and select the track your title is on. Now either click the fade FX button or press the keys that you have mapped it to. In the dialog box, enter the number of frames for the fade up and fade down that you desire. The real cool thing is that you can apply this to multiple titles or clips at once. All you need to do is enter the segment editing mode and Shift click the desired segments and follow the procedure above. This has been on of the biggest timesavers I have found yet in my editing workflow and I think once you start using it you will agree!
