News Ticker at bottom of video

Hi, I've watched both the Hitfilm Basic and Hitfilm Composite YouTube videos which have helped a lot, but I still can't manage to create a news ticker at the bottom of my video. My video lasts for 10 minutes and I want the NewsTicker to fly in from the right hand side. The text takes about 2 minutes, so I would like also for the text/ticker to repeat for the duration of the video.

Many thanks for any help offered.

There is no simple way to just 'loop' a clip in HitFilm. The easiest option you would have is to simply create your news ticker animation in a way that the start and end frame look the same and then copy/paste/duplicate the clip as often as you need to (5 times if the ticker is 2 minutes long and your video lasts 10) on your Editor timeline and that should work

Might not be elegant, but it's the easiest option I think.

Thanks for the reply - Is there one of your YouTube videos covering text animation?

I'm sure there's tons of tutorials out there Nothing that I would have made specifically on text animations in HitFilm though unfortunately. The closest I have is part 2 of my beginner series covering how to work with Composite Shots (including text and animations):
