I am looking for a way to put text on 360 videos, but flat in front of the camera.
To make clearer what I mean. I am recording driving on the road. I want to put the name of the road like it is lying on the road (not perpendicular to the road!)
If I set the latitude to -90 it is lying properly flat, but just beneath the camera, and I want to move it further away from the camera but still on the same surface

A little challenging to pull that off in PowerDirector. That type of 3D camera tracking is best handled with an effects program like After Effects or HitFillm.

The tracking is not my problem. Positioning the text is

As StevenG mentioned, you'll have a hard time doing that in PD as all internally generated text is placed on the inside of the visual sphere.

You'd need to create text images with transparent backgrounds in a third-party app, then import them and manually keyframe their position and distortion to apparently stay in place as you drive over/past them.
