Fading subtitle on camera zoom

I want some text to fade in and out in the bottom right of the screen as i zoom in to a fella talking. i can get the title to fade using alpha color transform, and i can attach regular text as a child of the camera peg so it stays in the corner as the rest of the animation gets closer. but if i try to attach the child text as it fades, it doesn’t appear at all. got any way of getting around this?
lots of times during opening credits, action is going on while the titles roll, so someone musta tried this before.
