    – create your title,
    – put it on the timeline,
    – step in to the effect,
    – replace layer 2 with your videomaterial,
    – step out, hit play – voila.

    didn’t quite get it to work.. where exactly do you replace the layer 2? in the effects editor or what do you mean? so close but not quite there…

    You create your title, save it to a bin and place it into a sequence. When you see it on your timeline, you want to step in to it (press the down arrow that appears on the bottom left of the timeline). You should see three video tracks. V3 should have the label Alpha Matte; V2 should have the label Graphic Fill; V1 should be blank. You want to replace V2 (Graphic Fill) with the media you want to show through the title. Once you do that, simply step back out (press the up arrow on the bottom left of the timeline), and it should give you the effect you want.
