How to add credits at the end of a home video?

Introduction

Creativeness is rather wide field to express yourself and let other people know: "Hey, here am I with all that stuff to be noticed!". Making and editing a video is one of the things like those. Maybe you have been shooting a documentary for a scientific conference, preparing an advanced video report in behalf of your student group or just compiling videos taken from different stages of your life into a single movie and already are using AVS Video Editor for that. After all you are likely to face the natural intention to mention and thank people who somehow took part in what you have as the result by means of the overlaid credits that can be made with the help of AVS Video Editor as well. If you are a newbie in using AVS Video Editor or even haven't tried the apllication yet, you'd better read how to download it, import your video and place it to the Timeline first and then just follow the steps of this guide to make your video complete.

Step 1: Lay a credits text pattern over your video

Now when you've added your video to the Timeline area you can proceed to lay credits over it. Click the Text central button and choose the Titles group from the text effects groups on the left:

Now select a pattern whose name includes the word "Credits" in the Files and Effects Area then drag and drop it to the Text effects line of the Timeline:

Step 2: Define the moments for credits to show up and disappear off the screen

That's the instant to assign precise time for credits to appear and disappear off the screen. Click the credits pattern block you've just added to the appropriate row of the Timeline area. Hold the mouse button and move the block all the way to the end of the row:

The next to do is to catch the exact moment when credits appear. Place the mouse cursor to the left border of the block until it looks like How to add credits at the end of the movie? (bidirectional black arrow) and then move the mouse with its left button pressed to the right or left along the Timeline:

Step 3: Replace the default text with your own

Make a double click within the credits pattern block:

Step 4: Apply the pause for credits movement (optional)
Note!Note: the credits pause can not be applied to Fade Credits and Black Screen Credits.

By default the credits move in the chosen direction without any pauses. If you want to apply delay you should define the moment for the credits to stop moving and continue moving again.

Move the slider to the left catching the suitable moment on the Preview screen. Then click the Fade in button placed under the Preview area - that's the moment when credits stop:

The part of the time bar became highlighted in blue – that is the duration of the credits delay:

Step 5: Format the text

Now add a bit of individuality. Make sure you work with the Draw presets sub-tab of the Presets tab. Make a double click on the preset that fits your needs or create your own style experimenting with the properties of four categories that the Objects tab contains (Font, Brush, Shadow, Edge):

If you are satisfied with the way your credits look now - after having applied adjustments mentioned in this and the previous steps – click the OK button of the Text Editor window to confirm all the changes.

Congratulations! The major part of work is behind. So no reason to put off the minor one right now. It implies just saving your project, assigning a directory for saving your video and finally starting its creation.
