Rolling Credits In Premiere Pro

Rolling credits in Premiere Pro are a type of text animation that allows you to display a list of credits, such as the names of cast and crew members, at the end of a video. The credits typically appear on screen in a scrolling fashion, either from the bottom of the screen upwards or from the top of the screen downwards. Rolling credits are often used in movies, television shows, and other video productions to acknowledge and credit the various people who worked on the project. In Premiere Pro, you can create rolling credits using the Essential Graphics panel, which allows you to customize the appearance and animation of your credits.
