How to create Star Wars Scrolling Text in PowerPoint

Creating an intro for PowerPoint with the signature Star Wars text crawling under the opening site is a great way to capture the audience, get them more interested and involved in your presentation.

Create the Star War Intro Crawl in PowerPoint

First and foremost, you need to add a picture of a clear, starry night sky as the background of our frame. Find the picture online, or if you have a good camera, go out and take one yourself.

After placing the image in PowerPoint, you need to insert a text box so that we can enter our introductory text. To add a text box, first click on the "Insert" tab.

  Insert the tab

Next, click on the "Textbox" button.

Click and drag to draw your text box. Be sure to be a little generous on the size of the text box.

Make sure the image is set to be behind the text. When you are ready, enter the text you want to view.

The font has changed a bit in later movies, but if you are looking to at least carefully trust the text style in the original 1977 version, you need to set the font to the following:

  • Color: Gold (Red 250, Green 190, Blue 0 )
  • Font style: News Gothic MT; Ball
  • Font Size: 44 pt.
  • Adjustment: Justify

After adjusting the settings, you should have something like this:

Now it's time to change the text perspective. First select the text box.

 Select the text box

Next, switch to the "Format" tab and then click the "Text Effects" button.

From the drop-down menu shown, select "3-D Rotation."

Another menu is displayed. Here, select the "Perspective relaxed moderately" option from the "Perspective" group.

Next, go back to the menu where we chose our perspective, but this time choose "3-D rotation options" at the bottom.

 3D Rotation Options

The "Format Shape" box appears on the right side. Near the bottom, change the "Y Rotation" value to 320 degrees and "Perspective" to 80 degrees.

The next part is a bit tricky – you need to place your text box so that the top of the text is at the bottom of the picture. You also need to make sure the text is centered. To do so, click and drag the text box. Adjust the width of the text box to make the top row of text with the same width (or near the same width) as your image.

Next, go over to the "Animations" tab and select the down arrow at the bottom right of the "Animation" group.

A box appears on the right side of the window and displays the selected animations. Double-click the "Up" animation.

A window is displayed and presents several options for the up animation. Change the "Smooth start" and "Smooth end" settings to zero, and then click "OK".

Then double-click on the "Grow / Shrink" animation from the list to bring out its setting window. Click the arrow next to the "Size" option in the "Settings" section. On the drop-down menu that appears, enter "10%" in the "Custom" option and then press Enter.

Move to the "Timing" tab and select the arrow next to the "Start" option. Select "Previously" and then click "OK".

Now you have to adjust the length of the animation "Up". The animation length is by default only two seconds, which is too fast.

 2 Second Standard

To adjust the time, click and grab the end of the colored field next to the animation. The timing depends on how much text you have. We set ourselves up for 30 seconds.

Do the same for your Grow / Shrink animation.

Now we need to add a form that uses the same image as the background. Go to the "Insert" tab and select the "Shapes" option from the "Illustrations" group.

A drop down menu will be displayed. Rectangle

Draw the rectangle so that it covers the top half of the image.

Now we have to remove the outline of the rectangle. Make sure the shape is selected and move on to the "Home" tab and click "Precast".

Select "No sketch" in the drop-down menu that appears.

Next, we need to give the shape the same picture as our background. To do this, go back to the "Drawing" group and select "Form Fill."

 Form Fill

In the drop-down menu, select "Image." Scroll to the location of the image you used for your background and select it.

 select image ]

You now have what seems to be a solid background d. The point of the form is that the text should disappear behind it.

If you were to play the slideshow now, the text would disappear so abruptly. To get a softer output, give soft edges to your shape. To do this, select the shape and move to the "Format" tab and select "Image Effects" from the "Image Styles" group.

 Picture Effects

Select "Soft Edges" from the drop-down menu.

In the "Soft Edge Variations" group, select the last option for the soft edges.

 Very soft edges

] That it! All that remains is to wow your audience with your creative presentation!
