Can we assume that you are using Premiere Elements 13/13.1? If so, on what computer operating system?
When you are in the program's Animation section of the Titler, I see no way to alter the speed of the animation applied to the text there.
But, after you close the Titler, you should be able to increase the duration of the title clip (to slow the animation activity) or to decrease the duration
of the title clip (to speed up the animation activity).
Please give that a try and then let us know if that works for you.
never thought of that, thanks! Will def try that
