    Was asked by a colleague how to do a dip to black. Couldn’t find it. Only way I can see to do it is to put a gap clip between the clips, do fade out, and fade in on the two transitions then make the duration of the gap to taste. Am I missing something?

    Hi Geoff

    Yes, it does exists – it’s in the Dissolves section of the Transitions menu and it’s called Fade to Color.

    Hey, you know some stuff does work – not a lot, but some 😉

    I mean the DIP to color. With the fade to color you have to apply twice.

    You’ve lost me – what’s the difference between the two?! Fade to Color defaults to a fade to black but you can change the color. Do you need soemthing else?

    One transition, fades to a color then fades back again. Like a dissolve but “dips” to black.

    But surely that’s exacly what you get with the Fade to Color transition, or am I being dense? You need to put it between two adjacent clips on the primary storyline …

    It will fade to a color then cut back to the next clip. No fade coming back.

    Hi Geoff – you must be unlucky for some reason.

    It works perfectly for me, just tried it again to make sure (I really like the way you can influence the “hold” duration in the middle), and I’m definitely getting full fade at both ends. It works whether I double click the transition in the menu or drag it from the menu.

    I haven’t been near my machine to try it, just going by what a colleague is showing me. Let me whack at his machine again. Thanks for helping me figure this one out.

    Best,
