Add Credits in Sony Vegas Pro
Melissa Rae, Eng, VisiHow
Hello and welcome to VisiHow.com. This is going to be a tutorial on Sony Vegas on how to add credits at the end of your video.
Once you have finished editing your video or dragging in the video that you want to add credits to, you can go to the 'Media Generators' tab.
Find and click 'Credit Roll'.
There are a few different selections, but let's choose 'Plain Scrolling on Black' for this tutorial.
Click and drag this to the very end of your clip so that it comes up as a separate clip at the very end.
Once that loads, a box will appear.
At the top is 'Title Text'.
Double-click it and type in "Credits".
If you preview your video, it will come up as "Credits".
For "Subitem Text", that could be "Director" or "Actors" or whatever you want to put in there.
Once that loads, it will say "Actors".
Then you could type things like "Test" in the various boxes, or whatever text you want.
Click the box next to 'Insert Text Here'.
The first box that appears is a header, like the "Credits" in bold.
The second one is a subitem text, so that's where you can change the category to "Special Thanks To:", so choose that.
Type in "Special Thanks To:" in the text box.
Select the first header box below the text box.
For example, type "VisiHow.com".
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.
Now, if we play this, it will scroll a bit faster.
It seems like it's a good speed.
Let's say we want to make it scroll the other way.
Go to the 'Scroll direction' and select 'Down (Backward)'.
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.
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.
Choose a color.
In the example, green was chosen.
That will make every single header green.
You can use this to color-coordinate your stuff.
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.
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.
That is all.

Questions and Answers
Why does my PC go really slow when I run Sony Vegas?
Why does my PC go really slow when I run Sony Vegas
You will need to be above minimum system requirements for Sony to work at a decent speed.
You will need Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10 (64-bit), a 2 GHz processor (4-, 6-, or 8-core); 4 GB RAM (16 GB recommended), and a GPU with 512 MB memory (1 GB recommended).
Therefore, installing at least 12 GB of memory will help you with larger projects.
The larger the project is, the slower the program works.
To speed it up, place all of the project files to a defragmented HDD or to an SSD.
Then, free enough space on your HDD for the project (typically, double the installed RAM size).
Make the preview window size smaller by dragging the borders.
Above the preview, click the "Preview" drop-down menu to set the quality to "Preview (Auto)".
In "Field order", select "None (progressive scan)".
In "Full-resolution rendering quality", select "Draft".
