Scroll Text Vertically from Inside vs Outside

I am using Camtasia Studio 9.x and would like to have vertical scrolling text in a rectangle where the scrolling text is animated from some place other than the side of the screen.

e.g. lets say I want to scroll text on a head stone in a cemetery video....starting from top of headstone and scrolling down to bottom?

I know how to create an animation and scroll the text in from the top of video down....however, say I want to start say 6 inches down from top of video, and end 3 inches from bottom of video.

Hi there

Assuming the headstone is static, I would consider creating a still image of the frame, then using something like SnagIt to "knock out" the middle part where the scrolling is to occur. Then layer this on top of the scrolling text.

Cheers... Rick :)
