The four buttons in this cluster sit on the left side of the screen above the Classic Title Editor’s Edit Window. Only one of them can be selected at a time. Choose the first button if you are creating a still title. The second creates a roll, in which the title text and graphics travel upwards on the screen as the title displays, like the credits at the end of a move. The third creates a crawl, in which the title is displayed as a single line of text moving from right to left across the screen like the bulletins on a TV news show.
Availability: Rolls and crawls are supported in Studio Ultimate only.
The fourth button is for creating disc menus, which you can usefully think of as “titles with buttons”. In fact, a menu is just like any other title except for two attributes:
· A menu has at least one button. A title has none. Adding a button to a title turns it into a menu, and deleting the last button on a menu turns it into a title. By the same token, if you click the Menu button while editing a title, Studio automatically adds a button to the title.
· A menu cannot have rolling or crawling text. The Classic Title Editor does not allow you to add menu buttons to a rolled or crawled title.
Because disc menus are allowed only on the main Video track of the Movie Window Timeline, the button for creating disc menus does not appear when a title from one of the other tracks is being created or edited.
