I really like the fade transitions, they provide smooth way of transferring from one scene to another in media without killing the mood. There are plenty of different ways I've seen people make fade transitions, only to find out they don't work on all platforms. Based upon the same method of Clickteam staff member Danny's 'Optimised Fade Transition for all platforms', this widget has very little-to-no impact of performance.
Using the widgets values and strings, you can change the speed of the fade and the colour (three defaults: White, Red or Black). Everything is handled inside the widget's events, all you need to do tell it when to fade in or out in the frame events using the widget's alterable string: "Fade In or Out" to "In" or "Out".

I hope this time saver makes people's lives a tad' easier and thanks for viewing!
