Overlay text on movie – QuicktimePRO quick-n-dirty

Turns out that quicktimePro (which Liv has) can do the trick:

– Save desired text as a .PNG with dimensions of movie (say 1920×1080) and transparency.

– Open .PNG with quicktime player, select all, copy

– Choose a section of the target movie (in/out points) and

– Edit add to selection and scale

– Open Properties windows and play with the visual settings of the pasted .PNG video track

– Adjust Transparency (bottom left dropdown) to Straight Alpha

– repeat for as many tracks as needed.
