In this video tutorial I show how to layer text over the top of a video or still image using Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.

This tutorial is intended for NEW BEGINNERS who are just starting to learn how to use Vegas Movie Studio.

The most important thing to remember when placing Text over an Image or Video below, is to always select the 'checkerboard' text preset which means the video or image will show through underneath. If you just want to create text on a solid colour background, then choose a different preset with a colour background.

      You cannot add a picture inside the Text Generator box.
      If you want to put a picture BEHIND any Text, you need to add another Video Track BELOW the Text Track, and place your picture there. Right-click any video track and select Insert New Video Track, to create more tracks. Then drag up/down to position below Text track.

      Hi Aja
      Sorry I have taken so long to answer your question - every now and then a message ends up in the spam folder.
      Go to Media Generators TAB - (Legacy) Text - Transparent Text template
      When you use this template, what ever is underneath this will show through the Text.
      So make sure to put an Image or Video on a lower Video Track and put the Transparent Text above.
