Yes I know this question has been asked before but I have a different case.
I shot a person kicking a soccer ball right at the high speed camera. I want to add text at the ball as it nears towards the camera.

2 ) adding dots either side OR

3 ) adding vtransparent letters either side .......

............... good luck ----chris ----
