Create and format the text in Word or a similar text editor. Copy it into Vegas and use key-frames to control speed of scroll.

Dear JackW

Thank your for ansering me.
I can do short text as you taught me. but long text is alreay out of the frames so I didn't know how.

@blueink - Hi there! Don't use Pan/Crop. For this example I used Legacy Text in VP15. Do you want to achieve this?:

@blueink & @JackW - Sorry about the UPLOAD of this MP4 not playing. It flows beautifully! However, I can manually Scrub through the Video and see the results.

Is there a render recipe for an MP4 to upload to this Forum?

SOLUTION: My AudioBox needed surgery . . Yeah, now I know my MP4 is working!

Grazie

Why not use the Credit Roll tool? This one is made exactly for this kind of vertical text scrolling.

@Marco. - Well, I tried from the earliest of VV, and hated it.

You’d think, wouldn’t you?

I use image editor, make layout of it, then do pan & scroll of the image...

if too long, then, make 2 images - although of course, scan-speed might be little different.

@set - So, once you've got etc you make a Graphic of it - yes? And then it is set in stone? My way you can keep changing all the parameters font, style, size and alignment within the Vegas Timeline.

if too long, then, make 2 images - although of course, scan-speed might be little different.

@set - If too long then all I need to do is extend the Event and, added to which, Scan speeds aren't an issue.

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?

Marco. wrote on 6/28/2019, 9:40 AM

I use Credit Roll almost every time I need a text roll. It's basic but it works fine.

Former user wrote on 6/28/2019, 9:54 AM

I use nothing else.

Guys Thank you for answering me.

Credit roll is good. but how about r LONG text? I need to type or copy & paste every single line.

@set
I'm interested Dear set said image editor way. the text is too long you split. I see...
How much line works by one time?

And Guys What would you do in my case?

"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.

@blueink - Not with my method. .

@blueink - My method uses ALL in one Paste, done 😊

And Guys What would you do in my case?

@blueink - Did you like my sample? Then Legacy Text and Positional Timed, easy-easy lemon-squeezie. 🍋

Grazie, can you explain briefly, step by step how you get the Legacy text to vertical roll?

Grazie wrote on 10/8/2020, 1:15 PM

Go to Placement and use PLUS and MINUS values for Start and Finish.

I have a couple of newsletters that discuss the credit roll tool at www.jetdv.com. They're really old but the same techniques would apply today.

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.

@howard-vigorita there's ways around the 3 font limit as demonstrated in my newsletters.
