I have two strip with images and one effect strip.

  • Strip 0 has a standard JPG image that I set for the full length of the render.
  • Strip 1 is a PNG with alpha layer that contains text.

  • Strip 2 is an Alpha Under that is required so I can see Strip 0 and Strip 1 in the final render to video allowing the text to be rendered on top of the bottom strip.

enter image description here

My problem is I want to fade out Strip 1 so the text fades away and does not effect Strip 0, unfortunately nothing I have tried works.

I tried:

  1. Keyframing opacity on Strip 1: The opacity is changing but there is no effect on Strip 1. It does not fade away.
  2. Keyframing opacity on Strip 2: This fades out all Strips
  3. I tried making a Meta layer with all three strips and keyframing an opacity change. This would work if I added another strip of the same images as Strip 0 but there is a darkening in the final render. This also required another Alpha Under strip. The end result is not clean.

How can I fade out a strip that requires an Alpha Under effect?

All you need to do is:

  1. Remove Alpha under effect strip
  2. Set Image with text and alpha channel above jpg.
  3. In N-menu set Blend type to Alpha Over.
  4. Animate Opacity of text layer to create fade out effect

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you so much. I played with the Blend options but never in exactly as you outlined. I thought I was going a little crazy :P $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 5, 2017 at 20:47
