Media Generator KeyFrame - HOW?

Hi everybody,
I made a title using Video Media Generators -> (Legacy Plug-In) Video Factory Text, where I can adjust Text, Background, Shadow and Outline. Ok, but would somebody tell me how to make keyframes, so that to let the letters move (for example)? When I move the timeline cursor, just nothing is happened, i.e. it is not like when using the track motion when need to make keyframes. So, I just can't synchronize with the video when need to add a keyframe. So, any help?

The "sync to timeline" option is not available in any generated media. Instead, you must figure out how far into the event you are and move to that location on the timeline. Of course you could always just add a keyframe then adjust it forward or backwards while the timeline is playing to get it in the right place.

Edward has his approach, this is mine . .

I create a Selection and set this LOOPed-region running in Preview and then while it is previewing adjust keyframes in GenMed, until I get what I want.

Grazie
