I have used a commercial video editor before, but with blender’s sequencer, I rate as a newbie. It is not obvious to me how to fade in from black at the beginning or fade out to black at the end of a strip of video. The VSE Manual
doesn’t describe this case; I can use crossfade between two video strips - that works fine.
So, do I create a short strip of black video, and crossfade to/from that? What am I missing?
