It depends if your using hold (black) or burn in (white) titles. In
any cases though you need to do matte for your text and perform an
invisible dissolve so that your title appear smoothly over your image.
You should definitely avoid the compensation technique for
superimposition because you will only get a blend of the two elements.
In the case of black titles you just need to have a positive matte
(black letters on clear background) that you will bi-pack with the
original to put titles on. In case of white titles you need to run
your original (half exposed) with a positive matte (black titles on
white background) rewind and then run it again bi-packed with it's
negative (white letters on black background) by fading in and out this
Hope you will get something out of it!
