How to create Credit Rolls in Autodesk Smoke with the Text Tool

Grant

from the Autodesk Learning Channel shows us how to create credit rolls in Autodesk Smoke, as well as how to stylize text:

The focus will be on setting up a text credit roll but it will also include stylizing the text and saving the styles as presets for later use.

Next we’ll move onto tabulation to be able to place the text correctly within the credit roll. For example, if you need to create columns of names in the roll and you want everything to line up correctly.

And finally we deal with the timing of credit rolls. Use the trimming tools to retime the credit roll to the length you need in the sequence.
