Hi @dvs, I know you said you were against programming HTML, but just in case I can persuade you about the merits of using an external .html file for your movie-style credits - I just made a demo HTML template which creates this effect:
Here is another clip created by the same html file but this time I’ve coloured the text boxes for identification to help people see what’s going on.
It works like this:
- The purple box fills the whole screen - its dimensions are 1920x1080 pixels.
- The blue box is inside the purple box (100% of its width).
Inside the blue box there is
- a green box with centred text,
- a grey box with left-aligned text, and
- an orange box with right-aligned text.
The blue box is animated with @elusien’s webvfx system to move from the bottom to the top of the purple box.
The green, grey and orange boxes are “pulled along” by the moving blue box.
When the boxes are made transparent, just the white text is seen.
I hope I have put the case for using HTML (but if not, no worries, yes, I agree an HTML table template within Shotcut would be great!)
HTML files zipped and attached, happy for anyone to try them out…

Feel free to adapt the template by changing the text (please excuse the silly name examples I wrote…) . For it to work, the webvfx.js file must be in the same folder as the HTML file.
Use the Text:HTML filter to apply it to a transparent clip in SC.
