Not sure if that makes sense, but I was wondering if it is possible to add a cool animated text effect.
For example...lets say I wanted to add a title and to match the theme of the film so it looked like something futuristic. Is there a way to do that?
Or add text to a visionlab project period, or do I have to buy a totally different software?

IT's possible to do in Visionlab, it'll just be a difficult process than using an NLE (Movie Maker, Sony Vegas, Adobe, etc)

But basically export each letter for your title from Photoshop/gimp/paint as a png so the background is transparent, then import them into Visionlab, you can now move them around and add effects.

It would be great when Visionlab could generate text to make those special effects.
