Is it possible to create a title, modify the duration from the default, export it, then import it into new projects with the custom duration? Right now when I'm importing I'm just getting the default duration, but it would simplify my workflow (many many sequences to edit) if this could vary from title to title straight off the import, rather than a manual change each time...
No, you can't save a duration into a still image. That duration is determined by whatever you've set in Preferences > General > Still Image Default Duration.
What you might be able to do is create a project with just your titles, set their individual durations in the bin, and in then import that project into your working project; it should create a bin with all your titles at whatever duration you set in the original project.
Thanks for the reply! That should be alright for a workaround.
