I have NO IDEA how to do the lower thirds like you guys do.  I have sony vegas 6 and 7.  I want to be able to have lower thirds like yours displaying just that on another monitor, how do you have that overlay over another source? And also how do you pull up the menu to make lower 3rds, and how do you display them on another monitor.

Sorry I forgot to elaborate in my initial question. What I wanted to know is how you do the overlays in a live show. And a step by step segment would be awesome thanks.

Use the built in text tool in Vegas on a blue or green background. Set the preview output to a secondary monitor that you then pipe into your video mixer on a chroma-keyable channel. Run your mix on B and fade in the chroma-key on A when its needed. Thats the hacker way to do it. We rarely do this because it's such a pain in the ass. I'd recommend going with a true text generator if you can afford it. Check out http://www.chyron.com/

Cheers,
