Thread: Copying scrolling credits title
08-05-2013, 11:27 AM #1Copying scrolling credits title
So, I made a movie of a Jazz Band performing a series of numbers and at the end of it all I have scrolling credits providing the names of performers and instruments played.
All very satisfactory.
Now I want to break the thing into its component parts, i.e. so that every tune has opening title and the scrolling credits at the end.
I want to avoid having to type out the details for every tune, but find that the text is lost if I try to cut and paste.
Any ideas how I can copy the details in order to streamline the exercise, please?
I'm using iMovie 11 and Mountain Lion.

Do a Copy and Paste of the Title to insert it where you want it. Then select that blank title, Right/Ctrl click and then choose Duplicate Last Title to insert the text.

Thanks, MG for your suggestion, but I can't get it to work.....
There is some data in the 'clipboard' - another title that I made - and I can't seem to replace it with what I want....
I've resorted to copying the entire project, deleting the unwanted chapters, leaving just the bit I want together with the scrolling credits that I mentioned. Having the YouTubed it, I delete the duplicate project and then go through the same procedure with the other tracks.
Almost as tedious as re-typing the end title!
