Being new to PPro myself, I simply create the credits in Photoshop (I'm a lot more familiar with Photoshop) as a video and then import the Photoshop file into PPro.
I've tried using the Title(er) but only for simple "titles". But I would imagine that you should be able to use it for your stuff.
Have you used "Titles" in your time line?
There are a bunch of video tutorials from Adobe here:
Thank you Shiv Kumar,
I've tried to use "Titles" but I cannot really understand them, every time I try to create something longer than the screen height, PPro didn't render the off screen part, I'm going slightly mad
Thank you for the tutorial link, a very complete resource.
1) Create a new title
2) Click the icon near the top left of the title panel for Roll/Crawl options
3) Set to roll, and you'll probably also want your titles to start and end off screen, so check those options if you want, then click OK.
4) Create a text box/area by using either the tool designed for it in the title panel tool box, or by using the regular type tool and dragging out a box from top left to bottom right of the titler window
5) You probably want TAB STOPS, so open the help file for PPro, click the "Index" tab on the left and browse to "T" and then find "Tabs" at the top of that section (it'll tell you all you need to know). Just keep in mind you probably want your first tab stop to be right justified, your second stop center justified and the third one left justified. That's the typical "look" for hollywood credits.
6) TYPE TYPE TYPE! Hit save once in a while, just in case you like the work you've done.
One thing to keep in mind with setting up your tabs is that the ruler zero point is from the left edge of your text box, NOT the left of the titler window.
Hope this helps!
Thank you, thank you, thank YOU!
Now I've understood, I must use a text area
Thank you again!
All that is in the manual and the Help file, which you said you searched. How'd you miss it?
Hi, I missed it, I don't know how, otherwise I wouldn't have asked here
Not a problem. We have all missed something in a large, technical manual at some point. Watching video tutorials is honestly the best way to get to know a product.

Still, with a full chapter devoted to titles, and even a subheading dealing specifically with this subject, it does seem kind of hard to miss.
