How do I make my clip transparent to show something in the background?

Hi!
I want to do exactly what this video does in 00:12

There is a video/photo in the background while the first one is fading until it stops and cuts to the woman talking. I know there are transitions but I dont want to transit to the other video, I just wanna do this effect and come back to the 1st video again. How do I do that? (sorry for my english, I tried my best)

Use the Opacity (English translation) filter with Keyframes.

Example:
shotcut_2023-04-14_00-43-16

For this, 3 keyframes for the “opacity” filter are enough, and this filter should be on the track above, so that there is somewhere to go into transparency below it.
