Thanks for the reply. However, I'm really looking to have the text appear as the bar scrolls along the page, as in the example. Do I need a mask? An alpha channel? I've tried a number of things and nothing is working. Other than that, I've 'created' the lower third but when the bar scrolols across, the entire title is visible. I want it to appear as if it's being revealed by the scrolling of the bar.

Set up your title (including the transparent bar) in the titler,
then use a wipe transition.
Generally, the term 'subtitle' is used to describe
on-screen text that mirrors the spoken words.
What you are doing is simply referred to as a 'title'.
I couldn't get that to work. A wipe transition on my gradient color bar layer? On a solid? Transparency mode? Mask? It didn't work. Sigh. Thanks, anyway.
Why are you giving up?
Open the titler.
Create a transparent rectangle.
Add your text on top of the rectangle
Save your new title.
Add the new title to the timeline.
Add a wipe transition to the beginning of the title.
A wipe transition on my gradient color bar layer?
No, you apply the wipe to the title. You can also 'reveal' text using a keyframed Crop effect on the title.
I must be an idiot. My title is three separate text layers created in photoshop but I could easily combine that to one. I just thought it might give me more versatility and font selection. At any rate, I applied a wipe to one of those layers and nothing happened so I'm clearly not doing something right.

Either do that, then add the wipe transition to the collapsed .psd,
or compose the title in Premiere as described above.
Or, use an animated crop as Dr. Jimmy suggests.
(is it Dr. Jimmy or Mr. Jim?)
Flatten it. Use Crop.
Stop the presses. It's now working. My bad. Thanks for your help, lads. Truly appreciated. I have a migraine so it's likely I wasn't paying full heed.
