I'm new to Final Cut in general, so I have no previous experience with Final Cut 7. I have added a title to one of my videos, then a transition to the first actual video. When the first video segment appears, I want a small title bar at the bottom of the page to show the time and date of the video clip being shown. I want this to be overlayed on top of the video, not before the video like a title.


In iMovie 11 it does this easily by dragging it right on the clip. In Final Cut Pro X, it acts like it wants to always replace my video with the title. I know I am missing something! Other than that, I want this title to show the clips date and time metadata. Again, in iMovie 11 there is a title for this, and I know I have to be able to do this in Final Cut.


Any ideas would be appreciated!
