Join Lonzell Watson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating credit rolls, part of Final Cut Express 4 Essential Training.
Creating credit rolls in Final Cut Express is easy and comes in very handy at…the end of your video production. Go to Text > Scrolling Text and then go to the…Controls tab and type in your names. I am going to add a few random names here…and separate them with an asterisk. The asterisk will leave a nice little gap…for us when we take a look at the credits.…You can't see the video right now, because it's at the bottom but it will…scroll up when we play it. I am going to patch the video to Track 2 and press…F10 to make the edit.…
As you can see, you will need to render it in order to play it, if your RT…settings are not set to Unlimited. The text scrolls upward screen, disappearing…at the top. This text is impossible to see on this particular background. So…let's go to the Controls tab and change the Style to bold. Set the color of the…text under the Controls tab to a darker color. Then add a drop shadow under the…Motion tab to make it stand out.…
Another thing we can do is have the video fade in as it comes on to screen from…

Q: After changing the Mac OS X Expose keys to dashes as instructed in the tutorial, the Expose keys -F9, F10, and F11- retain their Expose functions and override the Final Cut keyboard shortcuts. Why have the keys kept their original functions?
A: After setting the Expose Settings to dashes, go into the Mac OS X System Preferences and choose Keyboard. Once there, click on the Keyboard tab, then click to check the box "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.” This should release F9, F10, and F11 from their Expose functions and allow them to be uses as editing keys in Final Cut.
