Hello,

If you mean like Flash motion or animated GIF, I believe you'll need to produce that outside and then import it as media. I used Adobe Captivate to create 30 different animated text clips to spice up some Camtasia videos. I'm sure others can chime in how they accomplished this.

you could also use a text callout and apply animation to the callout to make it move left to right

It's all very easy in CS.  Create a text call out like kayakman said.  

Make sure the track in the timeline that has the text call out is ABOVE the video track so it will show up and not be hidden behind the video.  If you want the text to slide into view then continue across the video and disappear, have the textbox start outside of the edit viewer (lets say on the left if you want it to go left to right).
  

Add an animation to the text box in the timeline and drag the pointed end all the way across the text box...again, in the time line.  

Place the playhead over the dot at the end of the animation arrow.
 

Now go up into the edit display / viewer and grab the "box" (which will still be off frame on the left and drag it straight across off frame to the right.  Release the cursor from the box.  


Rewind the playhead to the beginning of the text entry and hit your space bar.  You can adjust time and motion as much as you want, but this will be the desired effect...and still be editable in your project
