Making the Scrolling Text Scroll

If you press the spacebar at this point, you’d be disappointed to see that the scrolling text, after all this work, doesn’t actually scroll. This is because you need to tell Premiere Elements that you want this text to roll, specifically, from “off camera” to “off camera.” This is a simple tweak, but the Roll/Crawl Options button you use to make it happen is tiny and often missed. Refer to the screenshot if you cannot find it.

Make the Text Roll

  • red-circle-2.jpg Click the Roll/Crawl Options button (it’s a tiny icon, so look out for it) to open the Roll/Crawl Options dialog.
  • red-circle-3.jpg In the Roll/Crawl Options dialog, under Title Type, select Roll.
  • red-circle-4.jpg In the Timing (Frames) area, click both of these boxes:
    • Start Off Screen
    • End Off Screen
  • red-circle-5.jpg Click OK.
  • red-circle-6.jpg On some systems, you may need to render the Timeline (press Enter) to see the scrolling effect.
