    assuming you already have the bike clip on the time line...

    insert video track
    click and drag the new track to the top (above the bike track)
    in the media generators choose text
    drag and drop the transparent background text onto the timeline in your new video track
    edit the text as you please
    move the text to the appropriate point on the timeline
    to fade out, move the curser to the top right corner of the text event on the time line
    the curser should change to a right angle with a circle type looking thing
    drag that to the left
    the text should fade out - adjust as required

    whenever I hit the transparent text..and drop it on the timeline..it comes out purple. I put it in the middle of the clip..then when it gets to the text..it turn purple for the amount of time that it is there then goes back to the normal clip???im lost lol

    Default

    go into the text edit window
    under the properies tab you'll see text colour and background colour
    for the background, grab the slider and move to the bottom, that will make the background transparent

    look up text in the help menu, it's a fairly simple thing to do
