@Marco. - Well, I tried from the earliest of VV, and hated it.
This one is made exactly for this kind of vertical text scrolling.
You’d think, wouldn’t you?
I envision I will be having to do this on some of my future projects and the Credit Roll tool was what I had assumed I would be using. So much for that thought huh? Nothing seems obvious when it comes to Vegas and performing typical video tasks. What have they been doing in regards to feature development in Vegas since I stopped using it at v6 when the realization of the audio feature development was being abandoned for more video feature development? Just adding Sony Handycam import/export support B.S. features? I was originally thinking I would be coming back to using Vegas in v16 and expecting common video features would be pretty much perfected.
What were some of the problems you experienced with the credit roll tool?
"Credit roll is good. but how about r LONG text? I need to type or copy & paste every single line."
Not at all. Credit Roll is great in handling long text. There is an import text button on top which you could use to import books of text. This tool is basic but quite sophisticated at the same time.

If you just enter a small amount, then select "export all or selected text to a file" i.e. the red A, then load that file wherever you saved it to, in a text editor, it already has instructions at the start of the file.
Besides scrolling credits you can also do timed sequences with various fades etc.
@jetdv - Edward! Aw Man! Thanks, once again, for reminding me of your monumental Site! Noobies to VegasPro, who wish to learn the History and Development of our VegasPro can only benefit from dipping into this rich, treasure trove of Edward’s Jetdv site.
If you don't need more than 3 font sizes, credit roll is great. Particularly the 2-column option for listing songs with authors or roles with names. But if you need more than 2 more fonts or sizes, it can't do that. I use it all the time for rolling credits but I'm going to try what @Grazie suggested in a hybrid approach next time.
