Sorry guys, I have googled this, but can't find an answer. How do I set the duration of text/titles? I want to have a series of text entries that fade in and out during a single scene. Also text that is sustained over more than one scene. Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

You can use mark and park to set the time of the text. Once it's in a FX track, you can use trim to further adjust the timing.

You will find fade in and out in the effects tab in the text effect panel.

In general, on a timeline, the length of a segment determines its duration. That applies also to effects.

Maybe of some help: The official V14.5 Quick Start Guide give an idea about the basic operations and, it explains what a marked section is and how to apply text to a marked section.

It's better to travel well than to arrive...

Just follow the mark and park procedures, they haven't changed. You can use an "i" on your keyboard or the the icon below the sequence viewer (on the right) to set the in point. You can see these illustrated in the thread.

The quick start video also explains using mark and park.
