    TIP/TUTORIAL: DISSOLVES – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

     

    Steve Cohen made a very useful and informative post about Audio Dissolve Attenuation settings (see link).

    This made me think to post these simple tips on a couple other ways to add dissolves.

    Nothing too fancy. But, as we all know, sometimes it's the little things:

    No mention of head/tail fades? - Absolutely the *only* reason I am still editing on an avid. Probably.

    Re: DISSOLVES – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

    Hey Ben,

    Would you mind putting a "TUTORIAL:" in front of your posts like this for me? That way they are more easily searched and tagged.

    Thanks!

    Ahhh . . . good point.

    And if you notice in my screen grabs, the head/tail fade buttons are right there in my Timeline Toolbar... Doh!

    I'll add that when I have the time . . . give me a while though!  ;-)

    Re: DISSOLVES – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

    Hey BlkDog!

    Happy 2010!

    Are you asking me to make the Subject like this:

    DISSOLVES TUTORIAL – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

    Or, do you just want me (and all of us) to include the word "Tutorial" in the body of the post and/or in the tags?

    Re: DISSOLVES – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

    BLKDOG, are you looking to follow Ben's tips/tutorials exclusively? I could create an RSS feed for that. Otherwise, you can search for topics within just the Tips/Tutorials section with the search box. Make sure to select "Tips and Tutorials" from the drop down menu.

    No Adam, I've just been requesting that prolific tutorial contributors like Ben and Douglas put TUTORIAL: before each of their subject headings to make searches and tagging easier.

    Re: DISSOLVES – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

    Ben, if you could do something like TUTORIAL: Methods for adding Dissolves and Audip Dissolve attenuation.

    That would be great.

    How does it make searches and tagging easier by doing that? I'm trying to understand how you're using the site to find content to make usability changes.

    Re: DISSOLVES – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

    The ability to search on "TUTORIAL:" brings Doug's posts right to the top in searches. Many of the users go there first to look for tutorial content instead of going to the Tutorials page.

    Re: DISSOLVES – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

    Ah, got ya. Would it be helpful if on the search results page there were separate tabs for Tips/Tutorials results vs. Product Forum results?

    Re: DISSOLVES – Methods For Adding Dissolves & Audio Dissolve Attenuation Information

    Absolutely. The search isn't great over all. You really have to be specific in the advanced search tab to get close. Branding these Tutorials this way has helped.
