Fade in/out issues was created by mozart

Concert recording, split clip, edited out stage reset excess time. Trying to fade out to black at end of the first section AND fade in from black into the second clip. Fade to black is working ONLY if I separate the clips. Can this be done when the clips are joined (touching?)
Thanks

Put a black clip on the track above and fade it in at the front and fade out at its end to achieve what you are after.

Thanks for replying. I seem to remember that I used to simply use the fade in/out function at the split point of two joined clips and it would fade in/out to black. Now I can only fade to black at the ends of the clips. Is this not correct?

If I understand you correctly you have 2 events on a track. At the end of the 1st event you want to fade out to black. At the beginning of the 2nd event you want to fade in from black. That is simple to do using the fade tool, hover the Normal Edit Tool over the top corner of the event to reveal the fade tool, grab the corner by holding down the left mouse button and move the fade to the right to fade in, to the left to fade out. Or, maybe I have missed something about your issue.

If it does not fade to black, what does it fade to?

Do you have something on a track below?

I have no extra video tracks. Is there another way to set opacity other than the handle on top of the video track?

Have you performed a full reset lately? Hold down the Ctrl+Shift keys and then double left click on the desktop program icon, check the box 'Delete all cached application data', then click on 'Yes'. Sometimes the application data will confuse the program. This may help.

There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with your screenshot, however you haven't specifically answered Eric's questions "what does it fade to"?

You could use the color fade track envelope and set the color to black. This would effectively allow you to fade in and out to and from black.
