Graffitti text spinning letter by letter
on Dec 27, 2008 at 5:35:18 pm

I want to have my title to follow a group of children who perform gymnastics.
In graffitti I can add text to a path and move the text along the path. But at a certain point, I would like to have the letters to spin around. Not all letters at the same time, but each letter one by one when they have reached a certain point on the path. Is that possible in Graffitti 5.3?

Thanks for your advice

Theo

HI,

Here's how to make the letters spin on or off with Graffiti:

• create a text element
• click on the triangle at the left of the text track in the timeline window to reveal the sub-tracks
• click on the face sub-track
• in the controls window, go to the type-on tab
• set the spin parameter value to 90 degrees
• keyframe the text type-on parameter value to make the letters spin on their own axis and disappear over time, one by one

Cheers,

Peter.
