Instead of using the Rolling Title Preset, Keyframe the Fixed Effect>Motion>Position, to bring in the Title from off-screen, then stop that Motion>Position, where desired. At the desired point, Keyframe the Fixed Effect>Opacity from 100% to 0%, over the desired time.
Thank you, Bill. Could you just give a tiny bit of extra info on this, please?
Thank you very much.
Oh, Bill, Bill! I mean ... I want to stop and fade out the credits at the end of my film. You know, this is a 3 min long thing. I wanna stop it at, say, 2:55 and then want the fadeout.
An alternative to Bill's suggestion would to not have it end off screen, do a capture of the end, and fade that out.
If you suggest to use the Export Frame tool, I have tried that but it gives a somewhat distorted picture of the last frame (where I actually stopped the video).
Bills suggestion is one way to go definitely.
He is advising you to create a title in PPro Titler or PhotoShop or other graphics application.
Put the graphic on a video layer and select it.
Go to Effects Control Window.> Motion > Position.
Position your graphic off screen at time you want it to start. Set a key frame.
Position it on screen at the time you want it to stop. Set a key frame.
Here's an alternative approach - it's great to have alternatives! I believe that to "stop and fade out a rolling title" is what the Roll/Crawl Options box is all about. Here's what I do:
Create a Default Roll Title.
In Roll/Crawl Options click on Start Off Screen (Preroll will disable) and enter the following values: Ease-In: 0, Ease-Out: 50 and Postroll: 100
Leave End Off Screen unticked
Make a few space lines before and after whatever it is you want to have stay on the screen at the end so that it fits in the middle. In my case that's usually ME! :-)
Your titles (as long as you like) will start off screen and then they will roll and roll until that last block appears and slows down - the Ease-Out value. That will stay on the screen for the Postroll value duration. Usually I have a normal disolve transition to do the fadeout. All done in just a few mouse clicks.
(The above values are what I use 99% of the time but you might wish to experiment.)
I got it! Thanks guys!
