Hi,

I want to be able to create what I'm calling a "black tape" onto which I can write text. So, for example, when I have an image that is so busy or light that text would be hard to read against it, is there a way to add a black or white bar or "tape" that can lay over the image and onto which I can enter the text. It's a pretty common effect (see image attached), but I'm not sure how I'd make it .

Thanks,
Michael

You definitely can.
You’ll need to add a title on top of your video. Edit the title and add a rectangular shape. Based on your first screenshot, change the face color of the rectangle to black. Then resize and position.
Add a text element if you don’t have one already. Place it on top of the black rectangle.
By default the text will be white. Notice that in the title editor you can set the order of the elements, so you can ensure that the text is in front of the black rectangle and not behind it.

You can also animate titles. Take a look at this tutorial that I created a while ago:

I hope this helps,
