    credit crawl problems

      Hey I am a newbie to premiere so I apologize in advance because I am aware there will be a straight foward answer to this question, I have googled it to no avail. I would like to set up a credit crawl so the credits move along the bottom of the screen. I have selected crawl in the titler and set it to start off screen. I cannot work out how to type the credits as the text box within the titler still remains verticle I can only type downwards and off the screen. I am not sure if I have explained this well. I imagine it must be a simple format option that allowes me to type the seperate credits horizontally.
      Cheers

          Have you tried just typing vertically and then seeing the results?

            may help. The basics of the titler have not changed since Premiere 6.5, although the interface has evolved somewhat. The basic technique remains valid.

              Thankyou for your replys. David, the tutorial you posted explaines how to crawl a single title. I can do that, what I am hoping for is multiple credits to crawl one after the other along the bottom. If I type vertically the text just disapears off the bottom of the screen, when I preview it shows the top credit and thats it, i presume the rest of the text is following the top line but out of sight below.

                I suspect that you are stuck with multiple titles unless you can cut and paste a very long string into a single crawling line - there must be a limit somewhere, but I've no idea what it might be in this case.

                As an alternative to using the title crawl, using Motion on a static text-based PSD image might give you more flexibility - only within the 4000 pixel width limit, though.
