    Is it possible to scroll text like credit roll, except the text is a paragraph with no line breaks that I want to wrap automatically. Obviously I would define the horizontal width and then if font size changes, it would wrap differently.

    I can do this in premiere. But I’m trying to ditch premiere. I just tried and can’t seem to do it in davinci resolve. I’m hoping vegas pro can do it otherwise I have to keep looking.

    Hi Peter

    Can you post a link to what you are looking for? Do you mean like the opening text in Star Wars ?

    Cheers !

    Yeah, like star wars opening text except I don’t need the perspective effect. IOW, text scrolls off the top of the screen instead of scroll off into the distance.

    here is one method to do this, it’s not necessarily the best way but it works. but if you want to recreate a semi starwars effect too you can do that as well.

    Hi Peter

    I use Hitfilm Pro for long text roll (there is a free version, Hitfilm Express) Hitfilm is also Vegas Pro compatible.

    Here’s a tutorial to get you started.

    If you are importing text from an existing MS Word file or other text file that is done with word wrap, things get tricky. Word wrap is not part of Vegas that I know about. You need “line breaks” to format text in Vegas .. so .. You can do the following to add line breaks to Word wrapped files:

    You could use whatever favorite text editing program you wish to type the material and get the line breaks right, then save this as an MS-DOS .TXT file with line breaks. Open this resulting .txt file in notepad and copy & paste from there.

    If you have an existing Word file done with “word wrap” on, you can change the margins so the size of the column would be comfortable on the screen, then save the file as “txt” with line breaks “on”. Open in notepad, copy and paste into Vegas ProType titler text box. Then use Pan/Crop to do the scrolling.

    I know this is confusing, but once you work you way through it, it does work.
