I ran a search for adding text and didn't get any useful results so here goes.

I am building a robot scene. i need a pov of the robot very much like terminator scene. i did not find a preset so i thought i would build it by using a prest that distorts vision and tweak it to look about right then add my own text. Is there a way to add text?

Create a .png or TIFF in Photoshop or whatever that is entirely transparent other than the text that you want to use. Then import the image containing the text and lay it over your video
