if you add the black background to the scene as an object. You can use the set object visibility action part at the beginning of scene to control the transparency of the object. Also the action part allows you to set a delay value of how long it will fade in/out to the new transparency value for.
So in other words you would do something along the lines of...
-- at begin of scene action
if condition 'condition_name' is true
pause for x ms (time before you want to start fading in title image)
set visibility of object 'title_object' 100% (x time in ms)
pause for x ms (time until you want the black image to start fading out)
set visibility of object 'black_object' 0% (x time in ms)
if you add the condition the properties tab of the black image object then it will only be displayed/active if the condition is true.
This is just a quick general summary... you will have to work out the delay times & what have you yourself.
