Hi, this is Gary with MacMost Now. In today's episode, let's explore making credits in iMovie 09. So making credits in iMovie 09 is a matter of using the titles feature and there's even one specifically meant for scrolling credits, but there's also some other options you can explore. So here I've got the tiles area selected by clicking the titles button and I'm going to select the scrolling credits and I'm going to drop them into an empty project here. I'm going to select a simple black background. Now I have some sample text in here and I can extend this as long as I want so let me just copy and paste and create a very long set of credits. Now the first thing you want to do if you're going to use this is you want to make sure the timing is right. So, for instance, I've added all these credits and if I play it, I can see how fast it scrolls by because I still have four seconds of credits, but I've added a lot of names. So I'm going to select it and press "i" or hit the i button here and I'm going to change the time to something a little more reasonable - something like 20 seconds. And now I've got 20 seconds to list the same number of names. So the speed's a little more reasonable. Now often in credits, especially in opening credits, names are put up one at a time and the trick to doing that is using a regular title sequence - like say this center title, the very first one and put that up there and you give it a name. And then you simply add more to it so I'm going to add a second set - same thing, but a different name. Now I want to set the timing on this too. Four seconds is too long to show each name, so I'm going to select it and change the timing to two and then do that for each one here. And now when I play it back, I kind of get that credits speed that I wanted. Now we can create something a little more exciting by using something besides the center text. I can select the credit right there, change it to something like "drifting" and do the same thing on this one. Now "drifting" requires two lines, so what we probably want to do here is do first name and last name. And now when we play that back, see it's a little more interesting. So a lot of times on television you actually see credits roll over the video. So you would take a piece of video here and bring that in to your project and then you'd want to put the credits over the beginning of it in kind of like a lower third. So you're going to pick the lower third or just the lower if you just want one line there. And let's just add that in here and move it over a little bit so it's where the video is. And then we can change the text here and maybe bring up the font panel or the iMovie font panel right here to align it to the left. Then, of course, don't forget, you probably want to add some music over the credits as well. So you can just drag and drop that and put it usually with the beginning of the first sequence here and then stretch it along so you get music and credits the way you want. Now another way to do credits in iMovie is to forget about titles altogether. Instead, make still images in an image editor - like Photoshop - for each part of the credits. And then simply drag and drop them and have each one display for a few seconds with a fade in between and add some music. This way you can add graphics and text in any part of the screen in any design that you want and just have that complete sequence run through as a video. It's basically a quick slide show. So, if you like some of these ideas for creating credits in iMovie 09, 'til next time, this is Gary Rosenzweig for MacMost Now.
