The Fade Editor is ancient and really, it functions as good as a fade editor needs to… But there is actually room for major optimizations.
First off, there needs to be an option for ‘Auto-Apply Fade Changes’. There’s no reason I should have to hit apply every time I adjust the curve. Sure most people don’t spend much time designing their fades default to straight linear line, but if one is having to do corrective fades, or works in post production, SFX design, etc - it’s mighty annoying.
^Secondly, there is no option for ‘Always Stay On top’ also seen in the video above. I cannot, go between adjusting the fade curve in the editor, to adjusting the fade on the actual event without the editor box closing.
-One should be able to adjust the curvature of the fade right on the event fade drag point.
-Global project presets
-presets for curve types so fade editor doesn’t have to be opened
This would speed things up significantly, having a way to quick set fade starting and end points. You could make these settings also accessible via info-line, and or, a ctrl/alt/shift modifer on the event fade-drag-point.
These are small things, that professional users - people in post, sample creation, SFX creation, and dialogue editing need.
