Go to Edit/Transitions and, from the drop-down menu, choose Audio Transitions.
There are only two audio transitions -- and they're very similar. Both are essentially audio crossfades. Just drag it between your audio clips.
So, sorry to sound pedantic, but what actually is the difference between Constant Gain and Constant Power?
I just pick whatever one I feel like on the day and have to agree with Steve that they're "very similar" as they both seem to crossfade to my satisfaction.
But if Adobe goes to the effort of offering both, it would be nice to know when they think that one would be a better option than the other!
>The Constant Gain crossfade changes audio at a constant rate in and out as it transitions between clips. This crossfade can sometimes sound abrupt.
>The Constant Power crossfade creates a smooth, gradual transition, analogous to the dissolve transition between video clips. This crossfade decreases audio for the first clip slowly at first and then quickly toward the end of the transition. For the second clip, this crossfade increases audio quickly at first and then more slowly toward the end of the transition
And there we have it! Thanks Chuck! :-)
I just add my music into 2 different audio tracks and make them overlap slightly. Then I fiddle with fades.
Your way sounds much more technically accurate but I have just made up my own way of doing things as I go.
