Scrolling images

Hello! I’m trying to create a scrolling band of movie clips on one side of the main movie image. The band needs to have about 25 separate film clips, scrolling vertically down the screen in a continuous strip, with about three images visable at any one time, so they need to be 360 pixels from top to bottom (end product will be 1080 resolution).
When I export the “band”, I can only see three images. Moving it reveals none at either end of the strip.

Any bright ideas?

If this is what you want to do, it’s easy, but needs a lot of copying and pasting.

Used 9 videos for the vertical scroll.
Added the videos to the timeline. Split the first clip at the 1 sec mark then put a split every 4 seconds. Split the second clip at the 2 sec mark then split every 4 seconds. Split the third clip at the 3 sec mark then split every 4 seconds. The 4th and the rest of the clips were split every 4 seconds.

Use the Size and position filter set to fit center middle size, 720 X 320. Keyframed the first three clips to start on screen then scroll off screen. The fourth clip on track V9 begins at -360 Y and ends at 1080 Y.

The Size and position filter used for that clip is copied to all the other clips then the tracks are laid out like this:

Here’s the project file.

Added a mask simple shape to each clip to create a gap between the scrolling video clips.
