text color not rendering properly in pro animator 8
on May 14, 2015 at 8:44:42 pm

Please see the attachment of what I am trying to produce.

A few years ago someone sent me a tutorial or I found it on making a ratting earth with the "universal studios text. Back then I have AE4 and Zaxwerks 4.5. Many times without success, I have tried to resize my comp from DV to 720. The results are not the same. I was told waxworks would change settings as a plug in to AE, but apparently I come up with multi colored text, and my globe isn't symmetrically round.
It has been so long since I tried this, I wanted to start from the ground up in AE 2015 szx pro animator 8 (plug in)

I seem to remember that you created a comp, went into the sax plug in, wrapped a large picture of the earth around a sphere and added text. Once back in AE, I added a star field and some lens flair.

Anyway, I am all thumbs here and I need an HD version of this comp. Can anyone remember the tutorial or can you help me with steps?

- - - - -Or is this a simply problem with text. If I can get the text to render correctly my problem is solved.

Hi Nelson,

Are you saying that your problem is that you can't figure out how to get the text to curl around your world? To get it to curl apply a warp track to your text track. Do this by selecting Track > Warp Track and making the warp amount -25.

Hope this helps.
