The length of the title determines the roll speed.
Yeah, what I do now is drag the end points to get the speeds on multiple titles roughly the same. I was just hoping there was a way to set the speed and let that determine the length so I could more easily match them.

That is essentially how a timeline based NLE works, the longer the clip is on the timeline the longer its' duration.
There is no real other way with titles, short duration = fast speed, long duration = slow speed.
Count the lines of text. Equal lines of text are easy. Just set them to the same duration. Unequal lines of text takes a little practice I suppose. Do the math.
Nice feature request. Set a "scroll speed" and have the program determine the duration for you. Cool, huh?
Yes, I would support the feature. Would be very handy
Counting lines only works if its the same fonts, same leading. Which is rare for me. Credits often have larger fonts for titles or something.
Back before I had an NLE and I plugged my titler into my editing deck, that's how it worked. I set the scroll speed and the duration was as long as required at that speed. The NLE titlers are much more versatile and I would never want to go back, but an option to set the speed would certainly be nice.
Yes, so I have a trick I use. I create a box that takes up half of the frame. I put the same box on both titles. I time the number of frames that the box takes to come fully on to the screen (if the text starts off screen) or to move from top to bottom.
Then I drag out the second title to match the same timing. It is a hassle, but it works.
