Thanks in advance for your help. I am trying to map bccae63d text to and 3depsextrusion (both in boris). The letters sit on top and in the middle of a heart. I have pickwhipped both the heart and the letters to a null to rotate them, but they don't cooperate in tandem.
I want the letters to stay in place (on top and in the middle of the heart) as I rotate the entire object or make camera moves. What am I doing wrong? the way...awesome awesome product

thanks again for your help...I hope I was clear

Well you're going about it the right way, which is pickwhipping the 3D objects to a null and then using the null to control the 3D camera move.

You need to make sure that you are pickwhipping the right camera property though - to create the effect that you want you need to set the built-in camera in both the 3D Text and 3D EPS to "Orbit" and link the tumble/spin/rotate camera parameters via the pickwhip to the null x/y/z rotation parameters.
