I'm currently wrestling with Motion, trying to get a nicely-formatted credit roll. Basically, I want something like:
Some kind of heading
maybe a sub-heading
With Motion, you have create a separate text item for each font style, to attach a "credit roll" behaviour to each and every text item, fiddle around with each item to line it up, blah blah blah.
There's GOT to be an easier way! Especially having to attach a roll behaviour to each text item. If I decide it's too slow or too fast, I'd have to manually change 50 or 60 behaviour items! Yuck! Currently I just render it out at a fairly slow speed, then play with time remapping in FCP.
I mean, the $100 cheapo editing package I picked up at Best Buy a few years back had that kind of thing as a preformatted template - all I had to do was type in the text and let it render.
