Adding subtitles on Hitfilm Express

Buck7 Website User Posts: 1

Hello all, I'm trying to figure out how to add subtitles to my video. Purchased the starter kit as it says theres a add on for text effect but somehow while I can drop the effect on to the video timeline, I cant change the text or move it. 

Is there a tutorial on how to do this because I tried looking around for it but cant find any. Thanks for your time in advance.

    When your timeline clip with the text effect is selected, go to the controls panel and expand the text effect group.

    Click the "A" icon of the text property to change the text. Position offset lets you move the text around the screen. The controls in the format subgroup of text let you change various attributes of the font used for the text.
