Controlling a looping auxiliary timeline to fade out


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have a looping auxiliary timeline and from the main timeline ask it to fade out not just stop. When I did this the loop would just pop of and was a little disconcerting. I wasn't able to find a command to ask the AL to fade, just stop or pause. Anyone have an answer to this?

One way to do this is to make a looping composition and place it, with Free Run and Looping selected, in an auxiliary timeline. Now you can add an opacity fade in/out to the media cue in the auxiliary timeline, and add a Pause cue with the opacity at 100%. When you start the auxiliary timeline, your loop will fade on and then pause, while looping, at 100% opacity. When you want to fade out, hit play on the auxiliary timeline.
