I am making a series of educational videos for my lab and have a separate blender file for each chapter. I have created an opening sequence that uses multiple lines of text that I metastrip-ed together. I would like to avoid reformatting the opening text for each file - positioning and sizing them to all be identical - for each chapter. Is there a way to copy the metastrip from one file and move to another?
I've been researching this problem for a few hours and realized that maybe I should have setup all the chapters in one file as different scenes. It appears you can move metastrips between scenes of the same file. Different facet of the same problem here - would there be a way to move all the work I've done from the VSE in one file to another. Append doesn't seem to work - just nothing shows up when I append a scene. Copy and Paste doesn't work. Would I have to export the file as something other than a .blend file and import into the other file? Would that save the ability to edit the text (since each chapter has a different title)?
Any help is appreciated. Maybe I just don't know what language to use, because I found very little info about this online.
Thanks in advance, April
