# Video Sequence Editor Alpha Over png transparency speed control effect

I'm a newbie with Blender and maybe this is a duplicate, but I couldn't figure out how to solve my issue. I'm using v2.69 on Ubuntu 14.04.

I try to make a demo video, where I have a strip on ch1 above a *.png on ch4 which has a text with alpha background. I want to speed up the video while having the text over it. I could speed up by adding the Speed Control effect and separately I am able to add the Alpha Over.

My issue is that if I put both effects, then the speed control is not applied. I found a post about this here but it is still not working:

• ch1 my_video
• ch2 speed control (blend: over drop; multiply speed:1.5; other setup default) - effect applied on ch1 strip
• ch4 my.png
• ch5 alpha over (all default setup) - effect applied on video and image.

Can somebody tell me how should I set up so both effects are applied? Does it matter the order of applying effects? Do I have to change some setting elsewhere?

I found the solution. Actually, it was easy and very intuitive. First, I added the video and image strips, in the image strip properties chanced to Blend: Alpha Over and next I add the speed control to the video file (only changed multiplayer property, the others are left default).
No need to add Alpha Over effect separately.
