I am trying to lay down overlay titles over my visual track, but titles I created before keep disappearing when I insert a new title.

The process I've been using is: I drag a title from the title sampler in the upper left corner and type in my content.

The title goes in fine, but, then, when I scroll along, I find titles I had entered previously have disappeared. (I am placing the new titles in front of previously inserted titles, not on top of them.)

So I'm stuck in an endless loop of inserting a title, finding previously written title is gone, rewriting the old title, reinserting it, and finding another title has gone, ad infinitum.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi mxmc123

Welcome to the forum

I can't reproduce this

Can you include a screen shot of your timeline please?

Thank you for your quick response. It's a little hard to show ... because what I'm trying to show is disappearing. But here is what the timeline looks like as I am working on. [See attached.) Thanks again.

One thought: Could it be that I have to insert new titles at the playhead?

Yes it could be that

Your timeline looks ok

You might be accidentally dragging a new title over an existing one. That’s the only way I can make it ‘disappear’

When you drop a title or effect it wii be at the position of the playhead

Still having problems:

Here's what I am trying to do:

I am explaining the results of a study on exercise and how it can affect thinking. (It helps.)

I want to run titles that explain the study in short sentences and phrases.

I'd like the titles to crossfade from one to the next.

Most of the time the titles will be on a black screen but some of the time there is an image of someone working out on which the title will be superimposed.

I'd like to have these images fade up from the black screen and fade out to the black screen.

I first tried making a video track of the images of the exercisers.

Then I created titles on the track above.

Then I tried to insert cross fades between the images and blank screen, so like: [image][crossfade][image][image]

However, when I started to do this, titles started disappearing.

So I tried again: I made the primary video track all blank and arranged the titles with spaces (but no fades) in between them on the second track.

(I'd like to them cross fade, like [title][crossfade][title]. But decided to try to keep it simple until I figured out what was going on.)

So once I got the titles in place (in the track above the main track), I tried to insert images in the main video track alternating with blank screens. Again, I'd like that have these crossfade.

However, as you can see in the screen capture, the titles and the video clips start to link and stack up.

So my question is: Is there a way I can create a simple set of titles that fade from one to another that most of the time appear on a blank screen but from time to time appear as an overlay over an image that appears or fades under the image.

Or do I just have to keep the image and the titles separate

so they don't overlap: e.g., like [Title][crossfade[image][crossfaded][title][crossfade][image]?

Does this help:

Title 1 fades in (on blank screen)
Title 1 cross dissolves into title 2 (they must be touching). (on blank screen)
Title 2 fades out
Video fades in
Title 3 fades in (video still showing)
Video fades out (title 3 still showing) (now on blank screen)
Title 3 fades out
Title 4 fades in (3 & 4 are on different tracks so do not cross dissolve but same effect is made) (on blank screen)
Title 4 fades out
