linking placeholders

Hello,

I have a customer that would like to do an overlay of text on a video that is full screen at the start of every presentation that indicates special features or pricing for 20 seconds. The presentation would only be 1 place holder as the main presentation that would cycle through videos and pictures. When it starts the main video they would like the second place holder with text to appear for 20 seconds and then disappear. Is there a way to do this, I have searched forums and see references to sync option but I have looked and can not find it.

IE- 60 second movie trailer plays then 5 slides of pictures. When the 60 second starts the second place holder 2 appears at the start with it and shows up for the 20 seconds of the duration. The 5 slides then play and again at the start of the 60 second trailer the 2nd place holder displays with its information. This allows them to change the message that appears with the trailer without having to make changes and re-render the whole video and upload it again.

Brad,

Creative's recommendation is to add a text widget that plays for 20 seconds, then a blank text widget next in the next position playing for the remaining amount of time.
