A gradual transition from one clip to another. With video, the clip changes from transparent to fully opaque (or vice versa) to fade in or out. With audio, the gain changes between silence and full volume.
A visual transition between shots or scenes that appears on screen as a brief interval with no picture. The editor fades one shot to black and then fades in the next. Often used to indicate a change in time and place.
A transition to black space between video programming or to silence in audio programming. Sometimes used between images or music. Usually used as a complete stop to indicate the beginning of a program (fade up) or its end (fade out).
A transitional device in which either an image gradually dims until the viewer sees only a black screen (Fade-Out) or an image slowly emerges from a black screen to a clear and bright picture (Fade-In). A fade provides a strong break in continuity, usually setting off sequences.
Exposure of motion picture film either in the camera or during subsequent operations, so that, for a fade-in, starting with no exposure and extending for a predetermined number of frames, each successive frame receives a systematically greater exposure then the frame preceding it, until full normal exposure for the scene has been attained. From this frarne on, successive frames receive identical exposure for the remainder of the take.
The act of increasing or decreasing the voltage level of audio or video signals. In audio, a fade-in increases the sound level from silence and a fade-out decreases the sound level until it is no longer audible. In video, the act of dissolving a video picture to either a color, pattern or titles. Fading a video image is often used as an artistic tool in video productions, most commonly seen as a fade to black. Audio fading is often used in conjunction with video fading causing the sound and image to fade simultaneously. (See AUDIO-FOLLOW-VIDEO)
A mode of message transition on an LED display accomplished by varying the light intensity, where the first message gradually reduces intensity to the point of not being legible and the subsequent message gradually increases intensity to the point of legibility.
An optical transition, usually from or to black, that may be used to begin or end a sequence.A fade to black is really a dissolve to another source, such as video black, since one cannot fade to nothing.In this sense, fading is cross-mixing or dissolving from one video source to another.An editor may generate a fade-in from black to picture or a fade-out from picture to black.
In audio engineering, a fade is a gradual increase or decrease in the volume of a source. The term can be used as either a verb or a noun. A song may be gradually reduced to silence at its end (fade-out), or may gradually increase from silence at the beginning (fade-in).
In stage lighting, a fade is a gradual increase or decrease of the intensity of light projected onto the stage. The term fade-in refers to gradually changing the lighting level from complete darkness to a predetermined lighting level. A fade-out (also known as fade-to-black) refers to gradually decreasing the intensity of light until none is shining on the stage.
A ball that moves in the opposite direction of its intended trajectory. Some scratch bowlers use a fade shot intentionally to convert right side spares. This is a slight variation of a backup ball, just not as pronounced.
A term often used for a left-to-right ball curve trajectory (for a right-handed player) that is slight or intentional. Fade is created by a slight tilt of the spin-axis to the right. A fade usually starts at or to the left of the target and comes back to or crosses slightly over the target line.
A ball hit straight towards the target and then curving slightly to the right. It is caused when the ball is struck across on an outside-in path with a square club face at impact, imparting a slight clockwise spin on the ball.
Commonly confused with the "slice" and "power fade." The fade is a gentle left to right path the ball follows after impact. While many golfers work their whole lives on achieving the fade's popular opposite, the "draw," the fade is much more controllable, but generally slightly shorter.
Flight of the ball that is curving gently to the right for a right handed player ( vice versa for a left handed player ). This is usually the ball flight of the high handicapper and can sometimes result in a slice. B etter players may use the fade to position the ball and allow it to stop quickly with little run.
1. In fastness testing, any change in the colour of a textile caused by light or contaminants in the atmosphere, e.g., burnt-gas fumes. Note: The change in colour may be in hue, depth or brightness or any combination of these. 2. Colloquially, a reduction in the depth of colour of a textile, irrespective of cause.
"Fade" was an extremely obscure single released promotionally in the Philippines by the band Blue Angel, taken from their 1980 album also called Blue Angel.
