In the Hitfilm tutorial on YT, I know you can put text. And if I want a black background, I could put a black plane on there. As far as I know, the best way of "adding subtitles to a video", is making a composite shot of a black box plane for whole of the video, then making separate composite shots for the text. But here's the problem, "Alignment", you'd have to move the text to fit the plane.
So, my question is: Is there a way I can make duplicate composite shots of text box (So the alignment is constant within the plane) for making the subtitles. Or is there a way I can use the same composite shot to make an entire script of texts but adjust the timing for when each line of text should appear.
For example: 0:01 to 0:05 - Subtitles "It's such a fine day, isn't it?", 0:06 to 0:09 - "I wish everyday would be a day like this".
Notice their text on top and btm is changing but the text alignment remains constant when different clip is being played? How can I do that easily instead of creating like 100 composite shots of text and trying to align all 100 within the plane?
2nd Question: How do I put make a smaller sized video playing while overlapping a bigger picture? I'd like to create something like the exmaple below.
Many thanks in advance.
