    Much easier way:
    – create a title
    – open it with the “segment mode” (the red arrow pointing to the right)
    – replace the video track “Graphic Fill” with any video you like
    – done.

    Well, not really. This way, you'd lose the emboss effect. For plain
    titles, you're right, though.

  • You lost me at “step In” How is this done?
