Hey all, I have a project with an audio sequence and photo to display on which I'd like to add moving text. I cannot seem to add text to the photo as the 'add layer' option is greyed out and when I select the text tool it is not doing anything. I can only seem to add text on the audio layer which is a black screen.
A single EGP (Essential Graphics Panel) item can have multiple layers. When you select the T (Text) tool, click in the Program Monitor and THEN TYPE your text. If you click again, you get another layer in the EGP item.
Put your photo on Video track 1. Then click in the timeline so it shows, select the Text tool, and click in the Program Monitor to add the text.
