    There are a few different selections, but let's choose 'Plain Scrolling on Black' for this tutorial.

    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".

    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.

    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.

    Let's say we want to make it scroll the other way.

    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.
