Build fast, flexible credit scrolls in After Effects. Make changes easily. Get some sleep.

How it works

Credits Are Due UI

Setup: Simply create a scroll control, then add or categorize your elements. Credits Are Due takes care of the rest. 

Make changes: Reorder whole sections, edit the type styling, add extra people, split them into multiple columns, and everything snaps into place automatically.

Throw in a few logos: Images and videos scroll just like text -- and in whole pixel increments, of course.

Hit exact timing: Change scroll speed, section spacing, scale and position on a global level and squeeze things to fit.

Work faster: Run the layer trimmer to crop layers so they're only in the timeline when they're actually on screen.

Note: This tool takes advantage of recent changes to expressions in AE, so it requires CC2015. (Projects can also be opened for rendering in the 13.2 version of CC2014. Creating or editing scrolls in CC2014 is not recommended.).



  • Create six types of scroll element
  • Dynamic layout: reorder, restyle or reclassify existing elements and leave custom text formatting alone
  • Arbitrary multicolumn layouts: break things into as many columns as you need
  • Add images and footage as well as text
  • Scroll in whole-pixel increments
  • Change global scroll speed, position and element spacing
  • Speed up previews and rendering by auto-trimming layer duration to match on-screen visibility
  • Ctrl/Cmd-Click to select layers by type
  • Shift-Click to override existing text selections and create new elements
