I have to make a scrolling text banner for a 1 min newsflash but I am a complete novice at AE. Just started learning this last week. Could someone please, please, please help me in doing this?

Many thanks,

For sure, you can make text that scrolls pretty simply by using keyframes or just use a script on the position like:


then tweak to taste.

But really you can have keyframes for under a minute. Just set one at the start, one at the end, type up the text and have a good day.
