Text Fade In on existing image

Using “text fade” in this forum’s search comes up empty.

That’s one way of doing it. There really is no best way, just many different ways.
Another way is to use
to create a transparent clip with text. Overlay that on a track, use the fades to fade the text.

Also, if you want to get fancy use the Text HTML overlays for text.
@jonray has quite a few tutorials for that here .
