Right now, we have a Fade-out feature in BIAB.
In the same manner, it would be nice to get a Fade-In feature.

It would be very useful, for example for Newage songs, ballads, instrumentals for movies, Praise&Worship songs, Gospels,...
I would also add a pro touch in some arrangements.

Note also that all modern hardware arrangers offer the complete set of Fade-in and Fade-out features.

DAWs typically offer fade-in and fade-out functions on a track by track basis. Also, many daws offer multiple fade choices using linear or logarithmic change in volume. Some daws also allow the user to apply a fade across one track, multiple tracks or all tracks.

How would you want fade-in to work inside BiaB?

The fade-out feature should work the same manner the present fade-in works : the user should define a number of bars upon which the fade-out would be applied.

Note also users don't always use a DAW : for example when we use BIAB in live for gig sessions, we cannot import to a DAW, so we need the fade-in feature inside BIAB.

yes, it's not an unreasonable request esp. if it allows the product to be better used in a live situation.

I run BIAB under Windows OS, so I can't answer to you.
Maybe Mac users can answer.
Have you searched in the BIAB manual for this entry ?

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
