I doubt you have taken the tutorials on the Creative Cow or Lynda.com.
Start here with some of the free ones, and at the end of over 100 tutorials, much more will be clear to you and you will be ready to edit.
I disagree a bit with the answer my friend shooternz gave you about the credits. Here is a short tutorial that might help you a bit. This one helps you line them up. The next one explains how to make them roll.
I gave him the simple answer for Credits... all things considered (read between the lines).
I would also never recommend the Crawl functions for acheiving them either. Lack of time precison and control that is available in key frames and elsewhere. eg AEFX.

I use the same method as Shooternz, it usually produces a far smoother movement than the crawl.
Try both, export both as a short movie covering only the credits and see what both look like on a TV, do not rely on what you see on the PC monitor us it only as a guide.
But I do wholehartedly agree with Steven about the Creative Cow website, masses of free and very good tutorials, compated to wht you find on Youtube, Creative Cow tutorials are generally major league compared to very minor league Youtube vids.
Good luck with your learning, you will never stop
A bit of extra advice, do make repeated visits to this forum, it will help in the learning, but before posting do read up on Premiere by reading the manual, by the time you have logged on, typed your question, waited for a response, you can find the answer in the manual
Hello everyone. This is my very first video I've ever edited in my life and loaded up on YouTube on November 5, 2013. I had a certain deadline to meet so I was in a hurry to complete this so that's why I was jumping ahead of myself. Yes, and I know it's not good to be in a hurry and jump ahead. I learned a lot just by doing this short little promo video. I will continue to watch, study tutorials, learn and do more over time. Check it out and join me on my links. Appreciate your support. Thanks for everyone's help and imput. JR
You got there fine.
