Here are the steps to do a Superimpose Edit of text over a clip in the Timeline. More detailed instructions are here.
  1. Place the Playhead anywhere over the clip in the Timeline where you want to Superimpose text.
  2. In the Viewer, click on the Generator button and choose your text type.
  3. Configure your text in the Controls tab.
  4. Drag your text into the Canvas window and choose Superimpose (F12).
  5. Your text is automatically placed above your target clip and is exactly the same duration as the clip it is over.
  6. If you need to make changes, double-click the text track in the Timeline to load it into the Viewer and make changes in the Controls tab.
  7. Repeat as necessary; if you’ve done some heavy formatting, use the formatted clip to do further Superimpose edits.
  8. This is not just for text; it works with any media.
