    .

    If we look in the upper right corner of the screen, this is what our credits will look like
    .
    It says "Credits", "Actors", "Test" four times, "Special Thanks To:" and "VisiHow.com".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Let's play through this in the video preview to see what it looks like
    .
    It starts from the bottom and slowly scrolls up to the top.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    It is scrolling a little bit slow
    .
    If we want to make it go faster, go to the edge of the video clip, hold down 'Ctrl' and drag it from the right side to the left side. It will shorten the clip.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Now, if we play this, it will scroll a bit faster
    .
    It seems like it's a good speed.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Let's say we want to make it scroll the other way
    .
    Go to the 'Scroll direction' and select 'Down (Backward)'.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    If we were to play that again, it would go the other way, like in the example
    .
    It's going from the top to the bottom, instead of from the bottom to the top.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    If you want to change the text, font or size, head over the the text
    .
    Choose "Credits", for example.

    To make it a green color, go the 'Styles' tab and click the color box
    .

  23. 23
    Choose a color
    .
    In the example, green was chosen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    That will make every single header green
    .
    You can use this to color-coordinate your stuff.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Click the box with the font types, and choose a font
    .
    You can change the font to any font that's in your system. In the example, 'Minion Pro' was chosen. That's a good font.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    We can also change the bolding, italics and even the size of the text
    .
    If you want it to be slightly bigger, we could select '48', and it will make the headers' font size 48.
