    Please tell me, how to increase the time of "In Duration" of the Custom Text?
    Slider allows to change between 5.0 and 60.0 . When I try to type 70.0, it reverts to 60.0

    Nobody knows the answer?

    That seems to be a relatively easy questions, especially for experienced people...

    You may not be able to. FCP X Title Generator is very limited. You will have more control in Motion 5.

    unfortunately it's not that easy - but you can modify fcpx generators in motion.
    here's one i made where you should be able to set the duration to 120.

    download, unzip and place the folder into /Movies/Motion Templates/Titles

    (if you don't have a "Motion Templates" in your Movies Folder, or no "Titles" folder inside that, just create them)

    when you start fcpx there should be a "custom text longer" generator next to custom text.

    let me know if it works - i'm new to motion myself.
