I'm am what you would consider a beginner with Flash, I am more of an After Effects user. Does anyone know how to make text in Flash orbit around a sphere? Like, rotate around a sphere, but with perspective? Sort of like the planet Saturn, but the text standing up so readable. There is a program called Swish Max that I am aware of that sort of does what I want. But when I tried the demo version, I had a hard time rotating the text on the Y axis to exaclty what I wanted.
This is so complicatred for me any suggestions would be greatly apprecaited.
Well, you could just do it in AE and export that as either a swf or create an FLV... but that's a suggestion if you're in a crunch and need to complete something.
Otherwise, besides building a 3D space which might be a little daunting for a beginner in Flash, you can also look into Motion Paths and then use an oval around the object and use transform options along with Masks to get the effect.
