Fade a video from colour to black and white

Hi forum.
Does anyone know of an easy way to have a video clip start in colour and then about halfway through change to black & white.
I can convert a whole video clip to black and white. But now I want to change just part of the clip to black and white.
Any ideas?
Thanks very much.

Hi Will,

  1. Start with clip in color
  2. Split clip where you wand the change
  3. Click on the clip to change to BW
  4. Add a crossfade transition in between the clips

Here is one I just did using that method.

I hope this helps.


Hi Ronald.
Thank you - that works very well.
I had split the video and put it on different tracks and then did a transition.
But your method works very smoothly.
Thanks again, appreciate the response.
