Ever needed rolling credits at the end of your video? Making them can be a pain! Personally, I am working on them for my short film and it’s very annoying to make changes. However, Rolling Credits from SUGARfx is looking to change that!
Rolling Credits comes with several different styles to get you started. All of these presets can be customized to your liking. I personally like “Rolling Credits 05″ the most. It has a nice gradient background with white text.
SUGARfx made it so virtually everything is customizable. You are able to change the position, roll direction, amount of columns, font, size, color, and much more! Plus, most of these are keyframeable! That means it can change over time.
When it comes to editing text, simply press the on-screen “Edit Text” button and a dialogue box will appear allowing you to enter your text. I found formatting text a little tricky at first, but I like the way they did it. I recommend watching the video tutorial, which I have embedded below. That did answer a lot of questions I had. I like that SUGARfx gives us the option to import text. That way you can have an assistant write them in a word processor (such as TextEdit) and the editor can import them in.
My favorite thing about the Rolling Credits plugin would have to be the amount of customization it offers. Like I mentioned before, I am able to change almost everything. Plus, the twelve templates that come with Rolling Credits are a good baseplate.
There really isn’t anything I do not like about this plugin. It may be a bit confusing to beginner users; but, after watching the tutorial, you should be good to go.
If you’re looking to make true, professional end credits (adding images, logos, etc.) this plugin may not be for you. I would recommend using a different software, such as Motion 5, After Effects, or even Photoshop. That way you can get exactly what you want. But, for those looking to make quick, stylish end credits, SUGARfx’s Rolling Credits is for you.
To purchase Rolling Credits, visit SUGARfx’s webpage. The plugin costs $49 USD, but there is a free trial offered.
