Not sure if this is the right place for videos, but here's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etcnkUSykt8) the text crawl from my RP Star Wars: The Sith Resurrection (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?p=2018683#post2018683)
I'll have to wait for it to upload to Youtube. It's taking a while.
Edit: I'll try to get the framerate fixed tomorrow.

I thought it was really cool, Alkonium. What program exactly did you use?

iMovie. It's surprisingly not limited in what it's capable title wise. It is great! Windows media player is half of iMovie!

If you're looking to make an as-close-to-the-original title crawl as possible, you may want to look at LSText (http://lsmaker.uw.hu/page.php?main=lsmaker.html#lstext).

It's fairly low-tech, and takes some getting used to, but it will create a great looking crawl. It can even do the 'Star Wars' zoom at the beginning. Once you've made the parts you want, you can export them as .avi files and put them together in another program.

Here's one I made for a RPG a few months ago, to show you what it can do:

Or, if you're using a Mac, there's this nifty program that'll even create studio names. (http://www.alienryderflex.com/crawl/).

EDIT: An example of the Mac program is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jS-KiFUQgU&feature=related

Hope this helps.

AK.

Wow. I had no idea about that software. I'll have to download it to redo that one and make the other four.

I don't have any experience with the Mac Program, but if you're on one, i'd say it's definately the way to go. ;)

The program for the Mac is perfect, aside from just giving you 3500+ bitmaps. Now I just need an .mp3 of the 20th Century Fox theme.
