All right, it's a reasonably easy one, there was a little bit of a squirly thing in there, to kind of test your reflexes, and your adaptability, hopefully you got it going. 

So I asked you, you could do it per text and per shape. There's the opacity there, but in this case I wanted to do it for the video and opacity. Decided, have to do it twice, so I'm going to twirl this down, and I'm going to get to the beginning here. This is the weird one, you're like, "It's already gone, did I turn that on?" How do they get on, that is one of the weird questions in Premiere Pro. There is a huge big dialog. If you go to, if you look online, and look for "Why is this on?" you will see a lot of like, serious Premiere Pro nerds complaining about it. Sounding, "Just turn it off, why is it on, nothing else is on." So it's one of those kind of weird things where, yeah, just is, you have to turn it on. 

So we've got it set to 0, and then it's going to come in for a little bit. I'm going to drag it up, just type it in. How long, that far, maybe further apart. We're going to get to fade out as well. So I'm talking, talking, talking, get to the end here. So just before the end, remember, set a keyframe, leave it at 100, get to the end. Gone to the end, and then set 0. That should do it, let's give it a preview. 

I'm just going to scrub it. I'm going to use our shortcut, so we're going to use 'L', and we're going to go double L, triple L, just to speed it up. There we go. Yes, you could use Cross Dissolve in that case, but we're practicing using keyframes, and I wanted to get you to share the, random, did I turn this on, why is this already on again, Opacity Slider. 

All right, on to the next video, well done by the way.
