Need Help To Add Stationary Censor Bars

Hi Guys,

A rookie I need to be told or pointed out to a tutorial how to add black stationary rectangular censor bars to a video.

A Google search is tough unless my search terms are bad. I need to add two small bars to black out the date and time shown on each side. Cropping the frame is not an option.

Help?

Re: Need Help To Add Stationary Censor Bars

Simple way:

1. Add a new track ABOVE the track you wish to block
2. Add a black generated media on that track
3. Use Track Motion to resize and position the bar. Turn off "Lock Aspect Ratio" and you can get any size rectangle you wish.

It's one of the buttons on the track header. Open the help file and search for "Track Motion".
