Easiest way to add Overlay Text over Videos (avi,mp4 etc)?

So far I have tried MS PowerPoint 2010 to add text over video but i don't see any options to show text for specific time. Plus the output format is WMV and it takes ages to get output from the powerpoint.

Avidemux doesn't seem to have Text options. It has logo option which is good.

Any other software which is easy to use and flexible to work with different fonts family,size sizes and custom time duration?

For ex.

I think Camtasia is great and very easy to use with lots of different effects possible. For more options have a look at VideoStudio (from Corel).

Camtasia looks great. It's easy to add text and sync with other. – Confused Jan 13 '14 at 16:20
