adding text to video clips
Anyone know the easiest way to add text to a video clip? I have a couple clips and I want a url showing throughout the clip
any help is appreciated,
what tools do you have access to? its easy with flash MX or Premire / After Effects or many other Video editing software packages.
I can use both premiere or after effects, im not sure which one is best for it.
which one do you know how to use? Premire has a titleing engine built in which is very easy to control. After effects lets you do some amazing text effects but is generally harder to get to grips with.

I'm a big fan of AviSynth scripts. A very short (two line) script could add the title. You just have to re-render it with another tool, like VirtualDub or TMPGEnc, depending on your output format. All these tools are open-source (but only run in Windows) for someone like me who's too poor to own any Adobe products.
But yeah, I've used Premiere and it is possible. I just never used it enough to be able to do so quickly (always found the program kind of bloated for anything I did with it).
