This is really simple, and should be a really common requirement, but I can't find a way to do it.
Let's say you start with a 1hr video. Cut out loads of sections which are boring. Then you need to close up the gaps.
I have found the crossfade control, so that when I *manually* close the gaps, I get the crossfade.
This works but
1) Each gap has to be closed manually. I have found the mode whereby everything to the right of the piece you are moving moves with it, which saves a bit of time.
2) Adequate control over the width (the number of seconds) of the crossfade is available only when you zoom in onto the area being cross-faded, quite far in, but then you have to zoom right out again to find the next bit to move along. This wastes a lot of time.
Is there some automatic way to close the gaps, with say a 2-sec crossfade?
The sort of videos I do are e.g.
where some 90% is removed.
