Video Fade Effect

Add fade in and fade out effects easily

Adding a fade effect to your video with Flixier is as easy as dragging and dropping it over to your clip in the timeline. No need to watch hour-long tutorials or take video editing courses. In fact, most things in Flixier can be done via dragging and dropping and all of the buttons are clearly labeled, so you can just jump in and start playing around with the editor and learning as you go.

No need to worry about file compatibility 

Flixier is compatible with all the popular media formats, whether its images, videos or audio tracks, so you can stop worrying about compatibility issues and file converters. Just drag your media over and you’re good to go! On top of that, all videos made with Flixier are saved as web-optimized MP4 files, so they will be compatible with all online platforms and modern devices.

Fade audio in and out 

Visuals are important, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect the audio tracks in your video. With Flixier, you can fade audio tracks in and out along with your video, so your videos can sound just as polished and professional as they look. You can also trim and cut audio tracks, enhance voice overs for clarity and combine multiple tracks together easily for complex projects.

Choose from dozens of free transitions

The fade transition is a time-tested classic, but if you ever want to do something a little different, Flixier has you covered! You can choose from dozens of free transitions by dragging them over from the Transition menu on the left side of the screen. Just drag them over to your clips in the timeline and use the blue handles to adjust their duration.

How do you make a fade transition?

Click on Get Started to open Flixier in your web browser. Then, drag the video (or videos) that you want to add a fade transition to over to the import menu that pops up on screen. You’ll notice that you can also bring media over from cloud storage services like Dropbox, OneDrive, or Google Drive, as well as online video platforms like YouTube or TIkTok (using the Link option).

Add a fade effect

To add a fade effect, drag the video from your library down to the timeline. Then, go to the Transitions tab, scroll down until you see the Fade transition and drag it over to the start or end of your clip. Use the blue handles that appear over the clip to adjust their length. 

If you want to add the transition between two clips, all you have to do is drag the two clips over one another on the timeline, so that they overlap on the same track. A Fade transition will appear between them by default, but you can also click on it to select a new transition from the dropdown list.

Download and publish

When you’re done, click the Export button in the top right corner of the screen. Flixier will take a few minutes to process your video and then it will be saved to your computer. You can also give your video a title and description and have it published straight to your YouTube channel, TikTok, Facebook or Instagram.

Steve Mastroianni -

My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.

Evgeni Kogan
