hey and welcome to the forums. now when u create these scenes are you using the scene fade toolbar or are u just adding a fade when u edit it in easy step? if ur using easy step u can turn off fade times per channel. it is the little box with a red line in it all u do is click that and apply them to he channels you do not want to fade. u can use thst i believe in conjustion with the scene fade toolbar. also make sure you are putting ur fade times in the right boxes of the scene fade toolbar. for a simple fade u will want to put a fade time in only the second blue box with the solid blue line going up. hope this helps. if u have any more questions or if i didn't explain this properly to u let me know. peace! sincerely jingles.
