Hi, I'm using Power Director 12. I'm creating videos that are text only, that will be projected on a wall for a theater performance as part of the play. I'm creating the videos with the "Title" function, containing short phrases (for example, "Chapter One", "The Next Day", etc. I need for ONLY the text to appear, with no background or background color, like one can do with PowerPoint (long story, but trying to avoid using PowerPoint). Is this possible?

Yes. When you place a title on the timeline and have no background image of video, PD uses a solid black background. When you project the video, only the text will show in whatever colors you've chosen, along with all effects and any start/end motions you've applied.

It's probably best to use white or bright/light colors if you want maximum visibility in a bright(ish) room, while you can use darker/bolder colors if the projector is powerful and/or the text will be displayed in a darker setting.
