I don't use VLab, but I imagine that it would not havbe this feature. WMM is an NLE (editng software), and a very primitive one at that, I might add. These types of programs (Vegas, Premier, WMM, imovie, etc.) have video effects whereas VLab and the other lab programs, are special effects software. They are not for video editng (adding scenes, removing scenes, transitions, titles, etc.) That is why you'd need an NLE and the Lab Products (or similarly after effects).

It's called Transparency apply it to Grade on the video you want to fade in or out. It will only fade the clip you apply it to so if you have multiple clips and want to have them all fade out you will need to apply it to each one.

Yes, I am a noob too. But I have done this effect before, first edit the video on your NLE, in that case that would WMM. Then import it into Visionlab and add the transparency effect. Good Luck!
(I know this is brief, sorry)

Step 2: Edit it on movie maker, add the transparency effect that is on movie maker! the fade one. Then just publish your video then edit it on Visionlab.
