Anyone know of a template for the standard 2 column credit roll. The
left column is right justified and the right left justified with a
fixed space centered between them.

I have one.. However, it might not be what you want. Its in Adobe
Illustrator format. I created it IllustratorCS (.ai) with that, export
it to a .eps file, and then import it into After Effects, where I make
it scroll from top to bottom. I output it from there to a .MOV file
(high quality) into my editor.

Works awesome..

Let me know if you want the .ai or .eps files?

Hi Richard

I pretty much thought that was the road to take and I'd appreciate the
template (either format).

That credit roll is so universally used that I was surprised that
Premier Pro didn't have a template in the titler.

Thanks.

Ok, Here's the credit roll of the last short film I just worked on. This
may, or may not work for you because this is done on a mac using
Illustrator CS. It's a .eps file, and should have embedded fonts in it.

This is definitely going about it the long way, however, the results it
produced were pretty awesome, and the director of the film liked it too.

I'm sure there's a better way using Final Cut Pro, and or Live Type for
the Mac, however, I've done rolls this way before "templates".. so, old
habits are hard to break.. especially since they work well. :)

I've used Premiere 6.5, and it had a credit roll.. Are you sure there's
no credit roll in Premiere Pro? Hard to believe.. Premiere has much
better lower thirds than FCP has too, IMHO.

Let me know if you had compatibility problems opening that file and
seeing it? Always like to know these differences between PC and Mac for
educational reasons.

Well yes, there is a credit roll but there is no way I could find to
do the two columns with fixed space. It's right, left or center
justified.

Thanks Muchly

Excellent.

I just thought of something. Since your working with Premiere Pro, I'll
bet that you can modify that credit roll, and import it straight into
Premiere Pro. The same way you can import photos and such, and just use
the motion to scroll it in Premiere. You can cut out a step (After
Effects) if you can do that.

Good luck on it.

That's exactly what I did. I've found that with PP there is no longer
much need for After Effects.

Ouch.. don't say that! :)

For things like a simple movements, sure. While I've played with
multiple post production software, nothing comes close to what AE can do.
