or how do i get the text to scroll up but NOT a picture on the screen?
i am trying to make the text stay in a frame that is a picture with clear inside

Thread: pinnacle 12 scrolling text
I don't use Pinnacle, but normally you would use 3 video tracks:
top track: screen overlay png (center section with alpha channel, so it's "transparent")
middle track: animated text layer
bottom track: main video
So the screen overlay png "covers up" the animated text, because it's on top of the layer stack
But according to this, there are only 2 tracks in pinnacle 12
A workaround would be to render the middle and bottom track as a lossless intermediate, reimport that video into a new project on the bottom track, place the screen overlay png on the top track
EDIT: if you don't have a "main" video you can do this with 2 tracks
Thanks very much- i will give it a try
EDIT it worked
