Final Cut Pro: Any suggestions for my plugin?

In the next few days I’ll upload a free plugin for you to download that will let you create closing credits scrolls in a Final Cut Pro generator. Before I finish it, have you got any ideas for features? Here is a preview of the Canvas screen while I change settings in the control tab of the generator:

Leave any suggestions in the comments of this post.

    Can you align the Text to the Left and right? Maybe for every Row? That would Rock.

    And how do you insert the Text? Is there a Field for the left and the right Row? Or how is it done?

    Maybe a Screenshot of the inputs would be usefull.

    Looks Good from what I’ve seen.

    Just like the scrolling text generator, all the text is entered in a single field. For titles aligned right and names aligned left, seperate with a ‘*’

    Any parameters for scrolling speed?

    It’ll have three animation options: from In to Out (like normal text generators), % complete – so you can animate using keyframes and pixels per second.

    an ajustable letterbor/pillarbox generator would be great. I do a lot of tv ads shot in HD ou RED but clients need to se it 4:3 fast so an adjustable generator givig black bars for pillarbox would be very usefull.

    It would be useful to when working on weirds crops for jobs ending on a website.

    Can you include graphics such as a logo. Would be nice, wouldn’t it?

      That feature will be in the Pro version. For now you can use another free plugin of mine: Alex4d Move

    Hey thanks for the plugin.

    Im using it to make NTSC rolling credits at 120 pixels per second but Im getting a stutter about once every second. Is it something im doing wrong or is that problem just unresolvable?

      Unfortunately I don’t know the answer. Being based in PAL-land without a NTSC broadcast monitor means I don’t have enough experience. The maths built into the programming of the plugin is simple, so I don’t think it is a fault there.

      All I can suggest is to try slightly different rates – such as 119 or 121. Does it happen twice as often at 240 or half as often at 60…
