Pop up title

This should be easy. I simply want a opaque band to pop up at the bottom of my video to take up 15-20% of the screen with title text, stay for 5 seconds, then retract. What am I missing?

Lower thirds. Do it all the time. What problem are you having?

As a beginner, I'm looking for step-by-step instructions for what I've described. Searched YouTube and VASST. Yes, lower thirds is helping, but I'm spending more time than I would hope.

I figured it out. I should have searched DFInfo first for "lower thirds" !

You may have found this link already, Jeff, and if so I apologise.

titling software. - The Digital Video Information Network

It's a discussion about some commerically available lower thirds and the like and I also posted a quick and dirty example of what you can do using just Vegas generated media and effects.

I also discuss how to create lower-thirds in my newsletters. You might want to check that out as well.
