    I recently saw a YouTube video showing someone using the fade to colour of
    the video envelope to switch or fade between three video tracks. I was
    wondering if others use this video editing technique? I have not tried this
    but it seems to me that this might be confusing as you need to work out
    what video track is going to appear.

    The times (extremely rare) that I do this, I find it easier to drop a
    solid color generated media on the track and fade into/out of that.

    Having extra video tracks is useful for cutaways. I don't like putting
    video over part of the video on the same track as I can't see what it is
    hiding. Its common to use more than one video track for sound so you can
    mix music and sound effects together.
    I've been working on a half hour video about a museum and used 8 video
    tracks and 3 audio tracks. Four of the video tracks were used to create a
    special effect introduction scene at the beginning. Other tracks were used
    for titles, music, sound effects, etc.
