I want to add titles to a video (like the titles in the end of Sintel) using the blender video editor. I made a long Image using GIMP and I want to scroll it in the end of the video. Probably I need to set a dynamic offset, but I didn't find an option for this.

The problem was solved simply: I went to the first frame, right-clicked on the offset, inserted a keyframe, then I went to the last keyframe, right-clicked on the offset and inserted a keyframe again.

    $\begingroup$ Note that you can also press I while hovering over a setting to insert a keyframe more quickly. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Oct 26 '14 at 0:15

You can do it on the compositor.

Mix the video and the image for the titles. For scrolling titles, add a translate node and animate its values.

EDIT

If you must absolutely use the VSE, add a transform srip:

To animate the values, go to frame where the motion begins, hover the mouse over the Y position for the effect strip and press I to create a key frame. Go to the end of the effect, change the values and create a new keframe ( using I again)

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, I try to avoid using the VSE as much as I a can... See the updated answer. $\endgroup$ – cegaton Oct 25 '14 at 19:50
