    I think it's caller a ticker. I'm not sure if that's the official name for it...But that's the ticker and the scrolling one from the left to right of the screen i.e. on news/sports updates is called a crawler

    Hmm I goggled it and couldn't find anything. It probably has another name.

    'Ticker' appears to be a commonly used term.
    I searched using ticker graphics - Google Search
    I found many references, for example:

    NASCAR on Fox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A caption like this is referred to as a 'lower third'

    you could go to a place like pond5 online and buy some.

    A ticker is any one line text that moves across screen - but it more commonly refers to a Wall street type indicator board for stocks and shares.

    A crawl refers to any title text that moves up and down (sometimes called a roller) or left and right.

    It must be under a different name, or perhaps it's incorrectly named from behind the scenes, so to speak.

    Ok so I downloaded this lower third video...however the background is black

    https://www.pond5.com/stock-footage/...er-thirds.html

    How can I make it transparent so only the lower third shows? I was able to crop it but there is still black showing since the image is not a perfect square.

    See how confusing it gets when you post the same question in different sections?
