In Premiere Pro CS5 Essential Training, author Chad Perkins shows not only how to edit video with Premiere Pro, but he also explains how to use video to tell compelling stories. This course covers the Premiere Pro workflow from a high level, providing a background on how projects go from start to finish before diving into basic clip adjustments, such as color correcting scenes for more dramatic impact, applying transitions effectively, and slowing down and speeding up clip playback. The course includes creative techniques, such as making titles and removing a green screen background from a shot. Exercise files are included with the course.
Once your movie is done, it's time to roll the credits. Give credit where credit is due to all the people that work so hard with you on your movie. And the Title in Premiere can help you do that. Go ahead and double-click Rolling Credits here in the Project panel. I went ahead and I created some text for you. And what we are going to do is make this text automatically roll for us. We could just type it and then animate the position of it as a clip in Premiere. But that's a waste of time and Premiere is going to do this for us. So I am just going to drag this downwards. Here is all my cast and crew and whatnot.
I am just going to drag this down here and put this about where I want it. That looks about centered. Then what I am going to do is I am going to this button here, which is the Roll/Crawl Options button. Click that. And then, what Type of Title is it? We are going to roll these credits, and roll means start from the bottom and go to the top. If we want it to start off screen, we'll check this button, which we do and if we want to end off screen, which we do, we are going to click this button. And that's all we have to do. I am going to go ahead and click OK. Once I did that, you'll notice that the icon for our rolling credits changed.
It changed from what's typically the icon for an image and changed into the icon for a movie. It's a filmstrip here. So I am going to close out the Titler and drag this down to my sequence here. And if we play this, we'll see that it actually goes pretty quick. The cool thing about this video is it automatically stretches for us. Let's say we wanted to make this go longer. I can grab the end of this. I am not time stretching. I am just trimming it. It automatically will lengthen out the time that it takes to go from the bottom of the screen to the top of the screen.
Pretty awesome credit rolling feature that, again, we can customize and change just by trimming it. That's going to automatically make it so that the credits will happen faster or slower based on the duration all of the credits here.
