    I'm trying to apply a fade-in fade-out image overlay to a video i'm
    editing. With Premiere I understand the way to do it is to place the
    image file in the Video2 slot on the timeline then drag something
    called The Opacity Rubberband which adjusts the fade-in fade-out

    Seemed straight forward, but having set this up, when I preview as the
    timeline plays across the image file, all that happens is a small black
    cross set against a white square appears in the top left of the preview
    screen and the image doesnt fade at all.

    I thought I'd followed the instructions to the letter but it wont work.
    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or refer me to a step by step
    guide that I can follow.

    It's been a while since I used 6.5, but I think that you need to render
    the effect, that's what the cross is referring to. Render the work area
    and it should then be visible.

    Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean by 'render'. How do I do that?

    Press the enter key. Really, this is elementary stuff which can be found
    in the manual. Not that I don't want to help, but you're missing out on a
    lot if you don't know the basics.
