    Is it possible to change multiple audio fades to equal power?

    Is there a way to change multiple audio fades to equal power from linear after the fact? Besides individually shift-clicking each one I mean, like lasso (or in-out?) the entire sequence and go into effect mode to choose equal power for all previously applied fades without changing the durations?

    Thanks,

    -Jeff

    Hi, 

    If you go to Settings, Audio Project. Click the Effects tab and you'll see "Dissolve Midpoint Attenuation". Set it to "Equal Power" or "Const Power -3dB" (depending on Avid Version).

    This will make sure the sound level doesn't dip in audio transitions. The bad news is that it doesn't apply the setting retroactively, so you will need to delete your existing audio transitions and put them in again.

    Thanks, yes, I knew about that setting, I also know you can use the effects editor to change them individually; I was hoping for a way to change hundreds of fades in an existing sequence without having to do them all individually.

    If the audio transitions are standard cross fades then it maybe easier to delete the lot. Then change the setting and reapply using In to Out on mass.

    Which would only work if they're all of the same duration, though.
