Scrolling titles using an image

There are times where absolute positioning is required in scrolling credits. Unfortunately MSP7 does not have such features and therefore you will have to roll your own. In this situation, we show you how to create scrolling titles using an image created by an external program such as Photoshop or Windows Paint. We make an image with text and graphics that scroll just like the end credits of a movie. The advantage of using a program such as Photoshop is that it brings you many more features that can add life to your titles compared to the somewhat limited features of MSP7's titling options.
