To create a template title
To use the template title
Put a long title onto the title window. Zoom out so you can see it all. The text sould run off the top (or bottom) of the viewable area.
Select the Animation tab and click. Now drag the start rectangle to above the viewable area. Select and drag the end rectangle to below the viewable area. Click OK and preview the scrolling title.
The above title scrolls so that text scrolls up the screen. It is as if the camera starts on the "start rectangle" and then pans down to the "end rectangle"
Use the instructions for vertical scrolling - just put the start and stop rectangles off to the sides of the screen rather than the top and bottom
