    I have been using Sony Vegas for years and it is quite an advanced tool. It's a fantastic editor and it is super quick when you get the hang of it though.

    Anyway, I would definitely suggest reading/watching some tutorials to get proficient in it.

    Anyway, to add text you can go to the media generator tab and there are text options in there. Then you need to crop the image to place the text where you want to put it. I suggest giving your text a border to make it stand out. So if you have white text give it a black border, ect.

    If you need any more help feel free to PM me.

    Hey I use this software app. I'm new to the forum and jumped at the chance of creating my first post. What you want to do is go into the file menu and select insert->text. Easy as pie :)
