Step 2. Add Text Overlay

Click "Overlays" tab. Click "text overlay" and choose an overlay (0 to 9) to add to the recording. You can add multiple overlays to one recording (10 overlays at most) and there is a sequence number for each overlay. By default, the overlay "0" includes some text, which enables a time generator to generate date and time. Check "Enabled" and you'll see the date and time lapse in the previewer. The position of the text display can be easily adjusted by checking "Left", "Center" or "Right" or specifying the top, left and right values. Click "Color" to set the font color and "background" to set the background color. Check "Transparent" if you don't want the background of the text displayed. You can also apply "Shadow" and set its direction. Check "Scrolling" to make your text scroll. Enter the value in "Speed" to control the speed of the scrolling.
