Lesson 8. Creating a Title > Previewing the rolling title text

Previewing the rolling title text

You can preview the rolling text by dragging the preview slider bar at the bottom of the Title window's toolbox.

1.
Using the selection tool (), click to select the rolling title bounding box.

2.
Click the preview slider button on the slider bar and drag to the right.



What you see is what will display in your movie. Notice how the text is on the screen at the beginning of the roll and rolls until the last word appears at the bottom.

To make the text roll onto the screen you'll insert extra carriage returns at the beginning of the text. You can also add extra carriage returns to the end of the text if you want the text to roll all the way off screen before stopping. For this lesson you want the text to stop on screen.

3.
Select the text tool and click anywhere in the text area.

4.
Scroll to the top of the text and make an insertion point before the first letter of the first word.



5.
Press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS) three times.

Note

Even though it doesn't appear to move the text off the screen, the carriage returns will create the desired effect when you preview.

6.
Click anywhere in the Title window to deselect the text box, and then preview the changes by dragging the preview slider bar.

7.
Save the title.
