Thread: Creating long scrolling text for credits

    Default Creating long scrolling text for credits


    I'm new to this forum, and have a question about Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11. I have a few years of standard video editing (nothing fancy) using various packages, including FCP, so I feel I am not an idiot when it comes to this stuff.

    But for the life of me I cannot figure out how to get a long section of text, like you would have for the credits at the end of a movie, to scroll vertically. Perhaps I am missing something.

    I've tried the Scroll animation, which seems to go from right to left (isn't that called a crawl?) and also Slide Up, which seems to move the text only a little, and within a window area that I cannot seem to increase vertically.

    I know how to use the Event Pan/Crop, but that works only for a single screen of text -- effectively sizing and sliding it around. not for any amount of text that is taller than the screen.

    Is there any way to make a long list of credits scroll vertically in this program?

    Type everthing in one title and animate it with key frames.

    You mean using that moveable frame, with the giant F in it?

    Well, I gave up and just did a series of still texts, fading from one to another.

    There is a perfectly good scrolling text preset in Vegas. It may be called different things depending on which version of Vegas you have.
