Adding music to a video edit is something that happens quite often. However having music just start can be a little abrupt. To not jolt the user, we can use a fade to help slowly bring the audio in to the scene. This will make for a smooth transition, and an overall better edit. Today we go over how to fade music in and out in Premiere Pro CC.

How to Fade Music in and Out in Premiere Pro CC (2018)

  1. Automatic
    • Effects – exponential fade (under audio transitions and crossfade)
    • Drag onto audio (note, its exponential not linear)
  2. Manual
    • Drag audio down (scroll or drag) – you will see a line in the center (you can also right click and level)
    • Create key frame – Double click on audio (or click on icon)
    • Add second key frame – move over to 2:14
    • Click where the center line meets the starting point of this key frame to create a diagonal line in bottom half to negative infinity (no sound at all)Picture of audio track with diagonal line.
    • At 8:17 a voice comes in – lower audio (click key frame) and move a few frames forward
    • Add another key frame and adjust to -18
