photo character state changes

I'm making a scenario , with audio tracks underneath photos characters. The photo characters change states in time with the dialogue.

The state changes seem rather jerky to me. I keep wanting to add a fade transition or slow the change down somehow, so it appears to be smoother.

Can anyone please suggest a workaround for this

I agree that the state changes seem too abrupt for the situation you're describing. A simple fix is to insert each version of the character as a separate object on the timeline. That allows you to set fade in and fade out as desired. If you overlap them for the duration of the fade, you'll get the transition you want.
