Need to quickly create end credits for your next video project? These helpful video tutorials will show you how it’s done.
Creating end credits doesn’t have to be a tedious process. If you’ve ever created a rolling title that features more than 30 people, you know that organization is key.
Let’s take a look at how to create rolling credits in most of the major video editing applications.
Rolling Credits in After Effects

This tutorial outlines what is, in my opinion, the best way to create credits in any software. With a highly complex text editor and advanced keyframe editors, After Effects is the perfect software for working with 2D text layers. The biggest thing you’ll need to remember is to stay organized when working with layers in After Effects. It’s easy get overwhelmed if you just start typing your titles into layers without organizing your project first.
No matter what software you’ll be using, go ahead and write down all of your titles in an Excel or Google Sheets document. You can then easily copy and paste your documents into the video editing software of your choice.
