    Rolling title question in Pre Element 11

    P1965 Level 1

      How do you set text positions  so it scrolls from off screen to on screen, or off again etc.,  in Pre Element 11.  In Pre 8 it was easy, cant find this option in 11

          First, Dbl-click on the Title, to open it in the Titler.

          Toggle ON the animation "stopwatch"

          Go to Applied Effects, to the right-hand side of the Titler.

          Move the CTI (Current Time Indicator) to the beginning of the Title, and adjust Motion>Position so that the Title is off-screen, either top, or bottom.

          Move the CTI to the last Frame of the Title, and adjust Motion>Position so that the Title is oof-screen in the other direction.

           

          For smoothest playback, you will probably want to Render that portion of the Timeline.

           

          Note: with Keyframes, you can Roll in the Title from, say the bottom of the screen, pause it in the middle, then have it Roll off the top.

           

          Good luck,

            For the application of the Roll/Crawl Preset, with the Title in Titler, look for Text in the Toolbar, and choose Roll/Crawl, to apply the Preset animation, with the full control panel.

             

            Good luck,

              Thank you for the quick response!  I tried your suggestions but had a few issues and just need to "play" with the controls a bit to learn what everything does.  

              On another note, after some changes then rendering the timeline, some of the title frames don't have a green line above them (no line at all) - now why do those titles appear much sharper??

                If you're not see a green OR a yellow line above your title segment on the Exper View timeline, then you've apparently deleted the title from the timeline. ALL titles have to be rendered.

                 

                Have you checked out my free 8 part Basic Training tutorial series? Part 7 deals with creating titles.
