LightRoom Slideshow Module improvements

I loveLightroom and most particularly the video capability and slideshow module. But I have a few real world working photographer suggestions for Lightroom 6.

1) I need the ability to add a title card example like the INTRO SCREEN and ENDING SCREEN, but anywhere within the slideshow. Yes I can create one in PS and import it but that is a waste of stems since the ability already exists.

2) Ability to right click on a single slide and set its duration. Sometimes I need one slide longer or shorter. Not all slides need to be the same duration. Maybe something that wraps in in a video container. The ability to edit the duration of a video clip is my workaround.

3) When previewing or playing a video - YOU HAVE NO VOLUME CONTROL!!! At least let us mute the video, but a volume slider would be nice. A simple feature

4) Sometimes a slide or even a video clip from the same source renders in the slideshow module at different sizes? Could you allow on a slide by slide basis to scale up or down? I know there is the zoom to fill but that is mostly useless unless you image is the ratio. Now I have to go out to PS resize up or down and reimport. And that doesn't always work.

FADE TO BLACK - Could you allow adding a fade to black between slides? Right now I use a black still frame inbetween slides. But since I have no manual control over the duration, it is often too long. I will try creating a black video to import and then I can edit the duration. But this is a very basic feature request.

NOW DREAM time. It would be amazing if you could export an XML file so the project could be imported into Premiere or After Effects. That wouldn't be that hard. Lightroom is an amazingly fast way to get a video together but lacks the polishing touches. If I could bring it in to another app and add titles or fine tune that would be great.

Looking forward to LR6!
