Default Re: Help me with crossfades!

Is there anyway to apply the fade to just where the clips meet?

My setup is: Windows 7, Mbox 2, Pro Tools LE 8.0.3
There must be some overlap between the two regions. Otherwise there's nothing to crossfade. If the crossfade is wider than the overlap, then Pro Tools tries to compensate, and it doesn't always result in a smooth fade.
