Hey Kalle -
One more thing if you have a moment. I've now tried to create an expression that will pull text from outside of After Effects and space it evenly on a path. It only needs to be one line but the biggest problem is the variation in the length of the text that will be brought in dynamically. For instance, one line of text is country names so one could be "Chile" and another is "The United States of America". If you look at the example in the dropbox link below, you'll see what I'm talking about (where it says "Switzerland"). Similar to what you did before, the expression would need to scale the text and adjust the tracking between each letter. On the flip side, when a short name like "Chile" is brought in, the text needs to be centered and letter spacing close together so it's not too spread apart.

If you wouldn't mind giving me your thoughts on this, I would appreciate it.

Thanks again!
