Scott, I never used the crawl or scroll as provided in CG designer, instead I use the still. I type in what I want, place it on the time line and use the 3d position adjustments provided under the control tree tab to make the text scroll or crawl. It may require several pages of text to get what you want. I start the second page at the point that the last line or word of the first page enters the screen and adjust the speed or position as the first leaves the screen. If you need a solid background, you need to create that separate since it doesn't need to move. Hope that helps you

In VT4 you could save the scroll text screen as a still and then follow your instructions. I believe VT5 does the same but I haven't tried it yet.
