(From Apple’s Support Forums )
- This option is located in the same place as the “green screen” filter.
- Essentially, if there is already a clip on the timeline, and you drag another clip above it, a new option appears in the menu bar above the Preview window (on the top right of the screen).
- On the menu options, a new button appears that looks like 2 outlines of a square overlapping.

#2 – Fading Audio In & Out
