Saving Fade Ins/Fade Outs as Default

The default fade in/fade out curve shape is linear. You can change this setting and define a default shape and/or length separately for fade ins and fade outs.


  1. In the montage window, drag the fade in/fade out point to the position that you want to set as default.
  2. Select the Fade tab.
  3. In the Edit section, activate Fade In or Fade Out.
  4. In the Preset section, open the Presets pop-up menu.
  5. Depending on whether you want to save the current fade as default for fades and/or crossfades, select one of the following options:
    • Save Current Fade as Default for Automatic Fade Ins

    • Save Current Fade as Default for Automatic Fade Outs

    • Save as Default for Automatic Crossfades


When you select a clip and click Apply Default in the Fade tab, the saved fade is applied. In addition, when you create a new clip and Create Default Fades in New Clips is activated, the default fade is used.


The default fades are saved for each audio montage. If you want to use the same default fade for several audio montages, you should update the audio montage template file.
