    @RayyanSaboor @kirkydman If you know exactly how long you wish the text, overlay or image to last then set that parameter and you should be able the  move the clip along the timeline to get it in the right spot.  Of course, I'm talking in a composite shot and you may be using the editor which I'm less familiar with, but I think you'd place it on a 2nd video input above the main one and slide it between edits.  Don't know if this helps, but I hope so.

    Edit: You can also use the rate stretch to drag the beginning and end of the clip to get the timing right.
