Livetype - scrolling end credits how to

I am going to do a Youtube in Final Cut for my high school class with highlights of our water polo seasons.

I have everything, but I want to do an introductory livetype scrolling of the entire team's names, with cap number. so scrolling...
1 - Andrew Dickson
2 - Julian Marsh
...etc
How do I do scrolling text (like at the end of a movie, I guess)
?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here you go...

- Select the Text Generator drop-down menu on the Viewer.  
  - Choose > Text  > Scrolling Text.  
- Select the Controls Tab in the Viewer  
- In the Text field type your text
- The default clip length is ten seconds while the text source media has a length of two minutes
- Since the scroll speed is determined by the text clip length, if you have a lot of text, increase the length of the text clip and if you have a small amount of text, decrease the length of the text clip
- Use larger, thicker font to minimize flicker

Good luck!

What does it look like on the viewer? The viewer has a whole lot of tabs, not a drop-down menu.

If you are using Final Cut Pro, follow these steps...

- Click the Effects Tab
- Open the Video Generators folder
- Drag the Text generator to the uppermost track on your timeline (putting the text on the uppermost track will overlay the text on your video tracks)
- Double-click the generator on the timeline to open it in the Viewer

Good Luck!
