So I went to put some text over my video and I am getting this black object or something covering my text. No matter what font I use or the size of the font. It grows and shrinks as I increase and decrease my font size, but never disappears or uncovers my text. Any guesses as to what i may have turned on to be a default setting that is doing this or some bug perhaps (probably not, more likely my stupidity).
Your stroke width being set to 477pix probably has something to do with it. Right next to where you changed the "Stroke Over Fill" to "Fill Over Stroke".
Yup, I am an idiot.
Thanks for helping to lay bare my stupidity!
