Hi there!  There are loads of videos on how to add a title text etc. but I want to add a background colour to my subtitles / captions and I can't find anything on how to do this.  I'd like this to be a gradient / a bit transparent so you can see the video behind the colour.  Other programmes seem to offer this, but I'm struggling to see how to do this.  Please can someone help?!

The basic techique is to put your background on video track 1 and the content like a title above it on video track 2.  The background can be any image file you find or create.  In Premiere Elements you can create a "Color Matte" for that background.
