Artists' Effects—Fade Outs

© 2011, Martin Rinehart

A fade-out effect can be dangerous! (Raphael died young. It was said that a night of continuous sex with La Fomarino was the cause.)

Maybe Raphael should have let La Fomarino fade out sooner. But your viewers will lose interest as she leaves. Be sure you have another focal point (such as a fade in, shake or swell) coming while she is going.

Thanks Wikipedia for Raphael, La Fomarino (his mistress), 1418.
