It should work fine with AE 6.5. But I haven't tried importing into newer versions. Let me know if you try it!
Version 0.4 is located here: Taolars_SW_Crawl_0.4.zip. See the included README file if you have any questions.
It now can output NTSC, PAL, and HD, the SW logo is now a vector graphic, and its easier to tweak colors, glow, text speed, and the tilt angle. I think it looks better too.
SD Video Example: SWCrawl_0.40_demo.avi . Note: The DIVX compression tweaked the colors and generally degrades the picture. See the still images below to get an idea of how it really looks.
HD Still Examples:
These are larger than most people's monitors, so if the edges of letters look jagged its because it was shrunk to fit your screen. Zoom in.
Let me know if you use it, and if your project gets released a mention in your credits would be nice, but not required.
Please PM me if you find any errors. Have fun!
Here's a crawl template that I put together for another fan editor. It's pretty accurate, easily adjustable, and I included instructions. Feel free to use it to your hearts content. Just please drop me an email if you use it in a finished edit. And a mention in your credits would be nice, but not necessary.
And here's what it looks like:
The Divx compression made some of the colors fluctuate as it fades away. The uncompressed version doesn't do that...
