    I would like to add text to a video. This could be a few frames with only
    text on or text added to the video as it runs.

    I don't want to spend any money so I was wondering if any shareware exists.

    Hi Wallace,
    I think you're secretly an Adobe salesman. Asking for progressively more
    complex features for free until we tell you - "Sorry, you have to pay for
    that particular feature.............."
    :)

    Don't know what your output video is gonna be for - but have you looked at
    Windows Movie Maker (in XP) or Free version of Avid? Providing you're not
    getting too ambitious, a lot of the freebies can do some quite useful stuff.

    Assuming that your editing software does have this ability....

    If you have a image manipulating program (ie. PSP, Gimp or <gulp>
    Photoshop) you could experiment at making transparent captions and
    use the 'logo' insertion filter in VirtualDub.
