Changing transition & title length: Final Cut Pro X
I hope the solution to this is easy cuz it should be! (That word "should" comes up all the time!)
What's my problem? Well, adding a transition and titles is easy; super easy; however, when i want to change the length of the transition or the title, it ends up with some weird numbers. For example, I've now got it as 3 seconds as the default. So let's say I wanna extend it to 6 seconds. Okay, I click and select the transition or title; then I hit Control and D. Fine. Now I can type in the length that I want. So I type in 600 and it shows as 6 seconds; I hit the enter/return key. I give it time to save. I click on it, Control and D and... it's not 6 seconds! It might be something like 9 seconds or 4 seconds!
Please tell me there's a simple solution and explanation!

In a bit of a rush so I'll make this quick. I updated my app to 10.0.6. Not a key issue; why not? Cuz I found out that transitions and titles get "influenced" by stuff around it. By that, I mean if I have a clip that is deemed "too short", the length of a transition can be messed up.
I think it's a weakness of a program that a user can't do anything he/she wants to do but that's another subject.
So, what's a guy to do but figure out some work around!
Instead of using a fade to color transition, just use a custom generator; create two key points (start and ending) and set opacity at 100% or 0% to create a fade to black or fade from black.
Also, I found that inserting a slug is a good way to create a one second black pause before something else happens.
Anyway, that's just one way to do what I was trying to do.... !
