yeah sknis that the way i was trying to do it yesterday... i couldnt quite get it right. the scroll to distance forces the text to shrink and dissapear in the middle of the page, not near the top like i want. its also difficult to get the text to start and end each line evenly like in the star wars scroll

that just doesnt do much for me. im working on the star wars logo itself.. where it shows up big and slowly shrinks in to the distance with a slow fade. i can get it to show up right, and shrink and fade out, but its too fast. is there a way to get the "end path<fly<vanish away" to slow down?

I created the text files in PhotoSuite and added them as overlays in VW, added motion effects, and then added the same background as an overlay with faded edges for the text to scroll underneath. Worked fine, but it's a lot easier to get basically the same thing in WMM :)

I don't have a lot of experience with WMM, but I do not see any way to have the credits fade into the distance, nor control the background. What am I missing???

The Scroll to Distance doesn't work the way it seems it should in VW (IMO) but WMM does a decent job with text scrolling into the distance. (Scroll, Perpective) Maybe you can take the clip you are working on, add the effect to it in WMM and then output it as avi and add it completed into your VW production. Kind of a long workaround, but might be worth it to you. I haven't done it, but noticed Gary advised someone else here not too long ago a similar workaround with the old film effect, and seemed like a good idea (being free and all :))

there wasnt enough options with it. i think i like vw better

 

 

Well yea lol VW is better. What I'm suggesting is to just use WMM for that part of your production, in which you want the scrolling text fading into the distance. Output it, and then add it to your VW production. Whatever works best for you :)

im trying to imitate the opening star wars credits in videowave. does anyone have a good way to do it?

 

One example is from EMC 10 program and in Videowave. When you choose to "Add Text Effects" and you get the type of fonts you want there are a couple of options for using credits. --Basic Credits (attached) and another on further down on the list named "Classic Credits". One of these should work. Another screen capture is in C2009 and has the same two text options.

no what i was saying was wmm sucked worse than vw for this part..

 

WMM works perfectly for the scrolling Star Wars effect. I have not been able to get anything half as good using VW.

Perhaps there is a way to do it in VW but I didn't feel like wasting much time on it since WMM works so well.

If Frank's way isn't what you want, here is another way. Pick just a standard text and then :

 

(Note that I tried this a couple of times and didn't get it to work right. I never really played with it a lot.)

I see that you are rather new with the program so this might help also.
