I'd like a 'Toy Story 2' type ending

Morning all,

Hooray it's raining. I can leave the window cleaning and get back to editing!

I've finished my movie and have a bunch of 'Out-takes' that I'd like to tag on the end - Toy Story style - with the credits scrolling across the foot of the screen from right to left.
As far as I know, it's not possible to shrink the size of the picture in 'Avid Cinema' to allow a black border to run the credits on.
This being the case, the credits tend to blend in with the background - no matter what colour or font I choose - as there's no facility that allows me to make the scrolling area paler. (like they do on sports programmes to make the score more clear)
Does anyone have a solution to this please?
If it's possible to create something in another package and import it, I have Ulead Video Studio 4.0 and various titling software that came as 'freebies' with computer magazines.
My movie is a 'QuickTime' movie which I want to transfer to video tape.

Cheers, Chirpy.

Thanks for the bundle of replies
My answer actually came from Colchester General Hospital - It's amazing what info you can find in the magazine rack!

Cheers, Chirpy.

Well, Chirpy, sorry this isn't an answer to your plea for help - perhaps no one reading your post actually had an answer!
However, as you have found it, any chance of passing on the info?

Cheers,
Jim.
