    Rants in this thread aside, the nature of EDIUS is that video and audio clips are merely aliased references of something much larger - all you are doing essentially is creating a list of instructions (In points, out points, add an effect here, a transition there, etc) - you aren't modifying the source material at all.

    Titles are a bit different - it's a "one frame" file created in an external application that reads in that file...much like if you did your titles in PSD/TGA/JPG files. If you copy+paste a PSD clip and then bring up its associated editor, would you be all that surprised if it overwrote the original? No. Because you knew an original file was being referenced inside of an "external" editor. Titles are the same (even Quick Title files).

    Essentially, what it seems people want, is for EDIUS to automatically duplicate titles with a filecopy operation (when copying titles), or, at the very least, suggest that a file copy be done (even if just to RAM).

    Alternatively, the title's data could be written to the project file directly - the downside is that this would increase the file size of the project considerably, and you increase the possibilities of project corruption. Even then, it could only support Quick Titler data (since we own that code).

    Sooo, the first option seems the be the way to go. Someone should request it.

      Oh, and the easy way out = Automatically "Save As" :)

        Calm down Anton.

        As Kenneally said, the difference is that with a video and audio clip you're not changing the original, you're editing "on top" of the clip. Essentially, it's non-destructive.

        With title clips and color bars, you're editing the document hence it changes everywhere.

        It'd get confusing if title edits were done in the same way as video and audio filters, so there's really no universal solution.

        For those of you who remember subscribe/publish in MS Word... It's like that.

        Or if you're an Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign person, it's like a placed document. Double-clicking it is like Edit Original, so changes made to the original are reflected everywhere it's used.

          that is the one the doctor ordered

          unless anyone rejects, I will request

          saving titles as part of the project file is what destroyed speed razor 5.5, it corrupted many projects and caused large auto save times

              I'll agree with that - on both counts.

                ...my vote too.

                Something I have noticed on 4.54 is that you can drag video clips to the title track. Why would you want to do this? Because it means you can use the blur title fade on the video. As far as i know you there isnt another blur fade available.
                Didnt notice this on previous versions. I may be wrong.

                  Yes. Its the way.
                  But sometimes I forget in a hurry and the button "SAVE" all the time allures the mouse pointer to click on it :(.

                    Wow. I didn't think this was such a hot topic but I'd vote for the new title request or at least a warning that I'm going to overwrite the original file before I hit the save button.

                        try it

                        Just have the Settings /application settings/timeline option that says add clips to mapped track unchecked.

                        Takes care of it.

                          .etl files are not large files. Its only simple XML code.

                          It would be nice - if every opening of title would save a bacup file of this title. Just like project.
                          If I dont like the changes I can get back to previous one :)

                              No, it's not rejected, it's called "I'm very busy and have not had time to review and edit feature request posts yet."

                              Thanks.
