Thread: Vegas 5.0, overlayed Text

    Default Vegas 5.0, overlayed Text

    Hey,

    I'm just editing a TS (HL moD) Movie and my only problem atm. is the overlayed text. I can't figure out how to make the text visible in the video. Well I tried to put it on the video and also above of it, in a new video track. But somehow it's still _____ up. Of course I used a transparent background, though still no reaction :/

    Any ideas?

    You're right to insert the text in a new video track above the footage. If you select the 'Default Text' settings, that is indeed a transparent background. Please describe what you are getting at the moment.

    I'm not sure what is happening, but here is a simple video of laying text over video. Sorry no audio on this screencast.

    I just see the video, the text doesn't show up.

    EDIT: nvm. I had a different text setting for some reason. Thanks guys.

    make sure the text colour is not black. - it could be as simple as black text on black background.
