TOPIC: Need help to put a black line behind rolling (crawling) text

Need help to put a black line behind rolling (crawling) text 1 month, 4 weeks ago #224490

I would like to have text rolling (crawling) across my clip with a black bar in the background so that the text is easily seen on top of the image (on top of the black bar). Imagine a news clip with words rolling on top of the bar.
Please help someone.

The effect that you need is called "2Tone Centre Box". You can adjust the colours so that all are black, and you can adjust the size and position of the box. If you only need one line of text, just remove the second that the effect comes with. Alternatively, you could use "Simple 2D Shape". You'll find that in the Matte section of the effects. Apply that effect first, set the colour, shape and position that you want it to be, then apply your title.
