    Default How Do You Make A Scrolling Banner In Vegas?

    I'm making a commercial and the guy wants some text to be scrolling at the bottom of the video like a news ticker. Now, I know how to do this with key frames and moving it like that, but is there already an option similar in Vegas? Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank You!

    Add a standard text generated media. Type the text as on LOOOONG line and make sure it's all in the proper font size.
    Now go to the "Positioning" tab. Change the "Y" position until it is in the proper location on the screen (i.e. somewhere in the lower portion)
    The next step is to make it scroll. Change the "X" position so that the first letter is just off the right edge of the screen. Now move the cursor on the Generated Media timeline to the end of that timeline. Next change the "X" position so that the last letter is just off the left edge of the screen.
    When you play this, it will now scroll across the bottom of the screen.

    Default Thank You!

    Wow, that was a no brainer! Thank you so much! I don't know why i didn't think of that. I knew I could drag it with the keyframes, but I was hoping I could just insert text and it would do it for me. But, thanks ,this is much easier than my idea anyways. Thanks again!
