Lower Thirds & Title Bars

In the video industry Lower Thirds are used as a way to identify the person or object on the screen. Looking around for a few places to pick up some freebies I found these:

And I made a few for you too, these are static lower thirds without animation. You can title over the bar and make a nice lower third for your project. Just green screen them! Key out the green and place them over your video. Click on the image below to get a larger version, then right-click on the larger version and "Save Image As". Save 'em on your computer and keep them somewhere you can find them within your NLE!
They are 720x480 100-dpi so they should look good on video. Free for your personal use.
Have fun!
