Top track -text

Middle track - background for lower third IE generated media sized and position or whatever you use for the background

Bottom track- video
What do I know? I'm just a video-O-grafer.

In addition to Don's advice, take a glance at the link below. Also, worth doing a search on 'lower third' on this forum - there are a number of useful threads. Finally, check out Edward Troxel's excellent newsletters, one (at least) of which has a tutorial on creating a lower third. Good luck.

There are also a couple of articles in newsletters on the Sony website:
