Hi guys,
I've many problem with my scrolling credits. To be honest, the roll is a little bit fast, and the export at 25p (Tif sequence) is not smooth. So I've tried to export at 75fps (Tif sequence) and the results is pretty good, but I need a sequence at 25 fps...What you suggest?
Thanks!!

you'll want to slow down the credit roll... roughly by a factor of 3 (since 75 fps looks good).

that means if your credit roll takes 1 minute, it will need to take 3.

nope... it sounds like the issue is how fast they are scrolling.

if time is fixed, then the only option is to try making the credits shorter (reducing the vertical length/height) so they can scroll slower over the fixed duration.

try reducing the font size and line spacing to decrease the vertical hight of the roll. possibly try a font with a lower profile (i.e., extended font).

if you have lowercase letters, you can usually decrease space needed between lines by using only uppercase.

possibly use more columns for names. anything to shorten up the credit roll height.

or ditch the scroll and do them in pages, transitioning quickly from one page to the next.

That last option is usually my first preference, in fact. I rarely use a roll anymore.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2014 (as of 7/2015)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.
