Home movies will look too amateurish if they don’t have intro and closing credits. Text credits provide an easier way for viewers to know the people behind the production of the movie. They also add a professional appeal to home videos.
The Scrolling Credits application for iOS does a good job of creating professional-quality scrolling credits for your movies. It is a simple little app that offers excellent features for customizing scrolling texts on screen.
This app allows you to create any type of scrolling texts that will match the theme of your movies. It offers a lot of useful options for creating custom backgrounds, fonts, and scroll speed.
Features of Scrolling Credits App
Scrolling Credits has a simple interface with easy to use features and options. When you open the app, the main menu will be shown on the screen. Icons and buttons are easily recognizable with large texts that are set on semi-transparent background.
The app’s main functions can be accessed at the bottom of the screen where you will find the local clipart library, your favorites, and your most recent work. To start making your own scrolling credits, you need to access the library to select any background theme.
There are thousands of available background themes and clipart images in the library. You can also use your own images or photos as background.
After choosing a background theme, you can now select the customize option in order to open the app’s text editor where you can type the credits. There are dozens of font types available for you. Font sizes and styles are also fully customizable.
Scrolling Credits offers a simple slider that allows you to set the scroll speed of the texts. There are three speed options available for you: slow, normal, and fast. You can see the actual scrolling credits by tapping the preview button.
Once you are done, you can save your work in the app. If you want to make further edits in the future, simply tap the ‘Recent’ icon to retrieve your previously created scrolling texts. If you are satisfied with your work, you can now open iMovie to import the scrolling credits.
Another useful feature of Scrolling Credits is its in-app video tutorial and ‘how-to’ sections which can be accessed from the main screen. If you are a first-time user of this app, the tutorials feature is very valuable.
