Please help. There is a bug in the Text Media Generators in Vegas Pro 9.0, and I just lost hours and hours and hours of work. All of my Generated Text Media events are now blank.

I am doing teaching video, and I need text for putting quotations and such up on the screen. I do not see how I can move forward without it. I have two projects due Friday afternoon, and I am really stuck.

I have Boris RED on my machine. I have never really used it. Is there some way to cut-and-paste from my teleprompter script (Word 2007) and bring it inside of RED, and then generate a file I can bring inside of Vegas, and position using Track Motion?

And how would I size it?

I have two Boris RED training videos by Class On Demand, but I am brand new to video editing, and I am still trying to get my feet on the ground in Vegas. I have not been able to get to Boris RED yet.

I have two projects due Friday afternoon, and I must generate text. Is it possible that someone can please give me a step-by-step crash course on how to cut and paste from Word, turn it into text in RED, and then generate some kind of a file (.avi?) that I can position and size in Vegas (probably using Track Motion)?

Thank you so much for your help.
