Fading In on Adobe Premiere
Step 1: Import your desired project files onto Premiere. You can do this by clicking on File>Import (Command+I)
Step 3: Select the clip by clicking on it
Step 4: On the top of your workspace, click on the “Effects Controls” tab. If the tab is not viewable, you can also click on Window>Effects from the menu bar.
Step 5: In the Effects tab, click on the triangle next to the Opacity option, which will open a drop down menu
Tip: Before you change the opacity, try zooming in to your video to about to the seconds, so you can decide how many seconds you want your fade to last.
Step 6: Change the opacity from a 100% to 0, making sure you are at the absolute beginning of your video clip.
Step 7: Next, say if you want your video to take 3 seconds to fade in, go the 3 second mark on your video, and change the opacity to a 100%.
Now when you hit play, your video will start with a fade-in for 3 seconds until the opacity returns.
