The 2015 date and lack of a manual tells me this may be an abandoned project.
I have version 3217 of Xmedia Recode video converter. I have never been able to solve how to operate the Fade In and Fade Out featue. Whatever timing and matter of seconds for the fade I type in to it, I always end up with a totally blacked out screen after the conversion. I would like to make fades of just 1 second duration. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. The set up procedure seems to defy all logic to set it! Maybe the function simply is not working on my version. If any one has had experience of setting it properly and getting a good result, could you please describe to me exactly what you did, please? It is one sophisticated software for which there is very little in the way of a good well written tutorial guide online!
