Your idea for a workflow is the traditional video editing method of making a write-on list with titles.
The first title you create with all the elements (multiple ?'s), then put this clip on the timeline and split it into as many clips as you have elements. For each slice, just delete a ? without moving the rest of them. Then you can put dissolves or any sort of transition between them (as long as the transition doesn't move the image in space - because that will move all the ones already on screen as well.
At some point we will implement animations on each title layer and that will make this more powerful.
Oh that's so awesome. Sorry for what may have seemed like a redundant or uninformed question. I have been using this software a lot and am digging my heels into more and more. Im learning new things all the time. This is awesome information so thank you.
You guys are the best, seriously!
