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 clip, click on it.
- To select a series of clips, click on the track just left of the first clip you want to select, then drag the mouse cursor all the way to the last clip you want to select. This will draw a rectangle, and all the clips inside the rectangle will be selected, even if they're on several tracks.
- 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.
- While holding the Ctrl key, 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.
