Step 1. Import a Video into the Filmora Scrn Video Editor
If you've just completed a screen recording session with audio recording via Filmora Scrn, your file will be automatically imported into the software's video editor.

Drag and drop the video clips you want to use in your project to the timeline and proceed to magnify the timeline tracks by adjusting the Zoom In/Out slider located directly above the timeline.
Step 2. Adding the Fade-in and Fade-out Effects to a video
Zooming into the track on which the video clip is located will enable you to spot the fade-in and fade-out handles easier. The fade-in handle is located at the very beginning of the clip, while the fade-out effect can be found at the very end of the video clip. If you would like to add a fade-in effect, simply drag the handle to the right, and if you want to fade-out to black simply drag the handle located at the end of the clip to the left. You can click play and see how the effects you added look like on the editor's preview screen.
Step 3 Fine-Tuning the Settings
The Opacity and Speed features are located in a toolbar on the right side of the screen. Changing the playback speed will make the fade-in or fade-out effect faster while adjusting the Opacity value will alter the transparency of the effect you applied to the video clip. Keep in mind that you'll have to find the right measure for each of these values in order to properly enhance the fade-in and fade-out effects you applied.
Step 4 Adjusting the Audio Settings
For the recorded microphone audio, you can drag the fade handle at the beginning or the ending of the audio file to make fade-in and fade-out audio effect. But, if you want to split the audio from the video and fade in/fade out the recorded screen audio file, all you need to do is right-click on the audio file in the timeline and select the Audio Detach option. Then, you can fade in and fade out your audio files easily.
After you've separated the audio file from the video clip, you should select it and proceed to adjust the audio settings.
