What is the best way to make long text scrolls with CG? I wish to make a text scroll that has quite a lot of text in it so I'm also hoping that I can import the text from a text file. This I should be able to do in VT3, right? In VT2 I was never able to do it right.

Now when I have a text scroll ready in CG, how do I take it to Toaster Edit. I can put the CG page to the timeline but the scroll won't work then. Is there a way to do this in VT3 without rendering the scroll with the background first?

To save scrolls from the CG for use in VT-Edit, you need to "Save Image" and select "RTV" as the type of file you save. This will render out the RTV+alpha of the moving scroll that you can then drop into VT-Edit and overlay there.
