You can set the opacity of individual video clips. This allows you to make some clips appear semi-transparent over the storyboard, so that they do not completely obstruct the artwork in your panels.
- In Timeline view, select the clips for which you want to set the opacity by doing one of the following:
- To select a single
videoclip, click on it.
To select a series of
videoclips, draw a rectangle around them by clicking just outside of the clips you want to select, then dragging the mouse cursor all the way to the last clip you want to select:
- To select a series of
videoclips, you can also click on the first clip you want to select, then, while holding the Shift key, click on the last clip you want to select. This will select all clips between the two clips you clicked on, inclusively.
- To select several
videoclips, press and hold Ctrl (Windows/Linux) or ⌘ (macOS), then click on each clip you want to select.
- Right-click on the video track and select Change Clips Opacity.
The Clips Opacity dialog appears.
- In the Clips Opacity dialog, type in a value between 0 and 100, where 0 is completely transparent and 100 is completely opaque.
- Click OK.
The opacity of the selected clips is changed to the selected value.
