    Hey guys, here is another one.

    This method allows you create a precise audio crossfade. For example, you can bleed the audio of a clip into the audio of a previos clip, or vice versa.

    1. Select the clip which’s audio you want to bleed
    2. ctrl+s to expand the clip’s view
    3. up arrow to move the playhead to the beginning of the clip
    4. shift+right bracket to select the left audio edge
    5. Do one of the following:
    5a. hit comma or shift+comma several times to nudge the audio inpoint to the left
    5b. ctrl+p and enter an exact amount, eg “-100” to move exactly one second ahead, shift+x to move selected edit point to playhead

    You now have precisely bleeded the audio tracks into each other. Now create a fade.

    6. Drag the fade-out handle from the previous clip to the playhead.

    I wasn’t able to find a way to do this using the keyboard. I’d appreciate any hints on this, if there are any.

    Have fun 🙂
