Animated overlay with transparency

Hi everybody.

I've always visited this forum as a knowledge source in every video job i've done. Now it's time to make a question because I still haven't found what I'm looking for (yes, i like U2 ).

I started a week ago editing some baby fútbol (smallest field with five players) material I've filmed. Every goal scored must have an animated overlay (similar to euro 2008) showing name of the player and time of scoring everytime a goal has occured. The overlay is a sequence of PNG images with transparency enabled (with fade in and out)and the text is shown through subtitles (fading out together with overlay). The script I'm using is as follows:

testcard = avisource("petazetas_vs_mamaestapresa.avi").ConvertToRGB32()
tcard01 = testcard.trim(8587,8757)
subs = ImmaRead("gol%02d.png", start=1, end=45)
logo = Overlay(tcard01, subs, 165, 280, ShowAlpha(subs), 255, "blend")
dissolve(trim(testcard, 0, 8586),logo,trim(testcard,8758,24546),5)
subtitle("JUAN CASTILLO", 230, 287, 8622, 8752, "Arial Narrow Cursiva", 16, $00ffffff, $ff000000, 7)
subtitle("MIN. 51", 248, 307, 8622, 8752, "Arial Narrow Cursiva", 14, $00ffffff, $ff000000, 7)
At this time, there's only one issue with dissolve ranges, easy to solve. But there are another issues I think they can be enhanced:
  1. The trim/dissolve filters must be used for showing the overlay from the beginning (if not, it starts from frame 0 of testcard, and the animation gets lost).
  2. Subtitles have not fading out. Anybody, please?
  3. This script shows only one goal. The matches have often 5-8 goals average, so the overlay must be showed many times. Can memory issues occur (overlay called several times)?
  4. Finally, Would be better to make a function for this?

Thanks in advance. Saludos
