Do you need a long Rolling, or Crawling Title? Well, Premiere’s Titler (both PrElements and PrPro) can do that, but when one gets much beyond the Frame Size dimensions of the Project’s/Sequence’s Frame Size, editing can get difficult.
I find that creating such, is much better in Photoshop, or Photoshop Elements. Since Premiere can handle large Still Images (PrE has increased the maximum from 4096 x 4096 pixels, so that PrE 11 and later, and PrPro CS 5 and higher, can handle much larger images, one can get a lot of pixels in such a Title, and especially if the Crop to just what they need in one dimension. Here are the steps that I use, and in this example, I will use a 1920 x 1080 Project/Sequence Frame Size.
That will allow one to animate the Roll, or Crawl, and by Cropping the PSD in PS, or PSE, you can extend the number of pixels to allow for very long Crawls, or Rolls. For Crawls, I have made them 14,000 pixels wide, and Cropped to about 130 pixels high. For Rolls, I have made those about 6.000 pixels tall, cropped into the left and right of my Text.

PS - depending on your connection speed, you might want to let the file download and buffer, then play it again.
