After buying a video camera for myself, I've suddenly got landed with a task for the school I work in. We might be using video more in the future for various things, so I've been asked to trial software and equipment and come up with a budget.
One of the trial projects I am doing for the school is a GCSE PE video. I tried Pinnacle, which is fine. But I've also been trying Vegas and I prefer it. All is going well so far in Vegas except this one problem:
At the beginning of every new 'section' of sport, I have to label several pupils with their names to make identification easier for the examiner. But actually, labelling could be something that is quite common in a lot of the school's future footage.
I'm doing that just now in Vegas with: 'media generators -> text -> soft shadow'. In Pinnacle, I could simply add lots of text items into one 'overlay' and then position them all separately. In Vegas, each overlay only takes one piece of text, so I'm having to add several video tracks just to add an overlay to each.
It doesn't feel like the correct method. Is there an easier way to do this?
