Question Help me with crossfades!

I am new to Pro Tools and having a difficult time understanding how to use the crossfades. I have a bunch of guitar clips that I linked together but of course there is a crack/pop sound where they join when playing it back. I use the smart tool and make a crossfade but it forces me to make the fade across the full length of the two clips so it applies the fade across the entire clip instead of the very end where they meet. 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.

Yep, zoom in to the area where the parts meet. Then in slip mode, select just a small portion before and after the split. Then cntrl f for the cross fade. It may ask you to adjust the bounds if it's too small. Select ok and try that. Select slip mode up in the left hand corner.

Slip Mode! That was exactly what I needed! Thank you very much.
