Stop a dissolve halfway, and you get superimposition. Dissolve with black (or occasionally white) and you get a FadeIn or FadeOut. The second-oldest film transition type, after the HardCut.

In the earliest days, dissolves were done in-camera: expose the film while fading out the lights in one scene, wind it back, and shoot the second scene while raising the lights, producing a double-exposed shot. An analog editing bay does much the same job, by fading the light levels used to project the film onto the blank stock.

stock. In some films using this technique the colour and contrast shift before and after each dissolve, because the dissolved footage is a generation removed in quality.
