Thats correct Ian, Title generators are not strictly time based media as such, at least not in teh physical sense, and so cannot be retimed ... but the workaround is easy: just select the title, press Opt-G to create a Compoud Clip from it, then you can use the Retime controls (Cmd-R) to easily retime it as needed.

Thanks Andy . . . . . it's simple when you know how!
I've frequently converted titles etc. from Motion and FCP 7 into QT Movies in order to do various things . . . . though I've never used that for retiming.
I wonder how long it would have taken me to work out the answer myself . . . . several days!
Just checked it out.
It's incredibly quick, less than 5 seconds, much quicker than creating a QT Movie!

Thanks Tom, I have barely opened Motion 5 as yet.
The content of Motion 5 is almost identical to Motion 4 except for the absence of LiveType fonts.
Is this because Motion 5 is referencing my Motion 4 content or would it all have been there if I hadn't had the previous version?
Basically I'm wondering exactly how much content actually comes with Motion 5 and its SU download.

Just re-read your answer and another question has occurred!
If I reworked Organic in Motion 5 and published it, would it be stored with all the other FCP X generators or would I have to save it somewhere else?

The biggest features in the new Motion are the ability to publish to FCPX and to rig the controls in Motion so you can have simplified controls in FCPX. All the titles and generators in FCPX are in fact published Motion templates. When it's published it gets put in a folder that FCPX can access. After you download Motion there's a separate software update that handles downloading additional content, about 1.5G worth.
