Disable fade of mp4 videoes

If you apply a video as a background to a section, the video will have a fade-in of 2-3 seconds.

This is not always desired. When using videos for a hero section I would much prefer if the video would just start playing as soon as possible and without a fade-in.

Would it be possible to make the fade-in effect optional? I can think of many other situations where a fade-in can be problematic.

Hi @kgeee,

Thank you for sharing this request!

I faced a similar limitation with the fade-in today, and thought I would share a workaround.

To ‘disable’ the fade-in you can add a transparent background colour from the Design > Background > Video tabs, thus your video will automatically play on loading the page.

Rest assured, we are still considering to offer a toggle to disable the fade, perhaps on a global basis from the Global Styles > Settings.

Please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts on this.
