You make complete sense.
Unfortunately, there's no way to do what you want just using iMovie.
There is a Typewriter title in Final Cut Pro X but that's an expensive solution.
The only way you could do it with iMovie would be to create your titles in an image editor (PhotoShop, Pixelmator) and then bring them into iMovie and use either the Cutaway or Picture in Picture tools.. But you'd need to create a series of graphics, revealing your title letter by letter. A bit labor intensive but doable.

Thank you very much for the detailed response!
I wonder if there is an easier way . Hmm.. I have the iWorks package and I'm thinking maybe, just maybe, that Keynote would allow you to create a moving text file that can be exported to jpeg files which can then be inserted into Wondershare Video Editor or iMovie (as mov. or mpeg2 files)- maybe even using Pages to craft something.
Who knows?! Your thoughts?

I only wish I could be of more help.
There could be something in Keynote. I've only just palyed around with it.
Whatever you do, you need text on top of an alpha channel background layer with nothing in it. That is to say a graphic overlay with only text and a transparent background. Pages can't do that. Not sure about Keynote as I've not really used.
I'm not familiar with Wondershare.
I do know that the effect is in Final Cut Pro X though.
I'll post if I can come up with anything else.
