    Dallas opening titles

    PhoebeSparke Level 1

      I am trying to recreate a Dallas opening sequence - type  project but having difficulty.  I am using premiere pro cs4.  The following clips are examples.

      the 3 clips are the same, being 6 seconds long, they have been cropped to 25% R and 25% left.  I then used the 'transform - roll' video effect with initial vertical postion -338 end position 2168.  All 3 clips have these parameters.  All other parameters are default.  Video 2 starts at 1 sec 15 frames into the project, video 3 starts at 3 secs 4 frames into the project

       

      Now when I susbstitute video 2 for a different clip (as I want different clips rolling across the screen) this is what happens.  The new clip is the same time length 6 seconds and all other parameters are as above.  It has been directly subsituted for video 2 in the above example

      I want to understand what is happening, is it an artifact of the transform - roll video effect.

       

      Or is there an easier way to recreate this footage?
