I have animated a Text in order that it follows a line, using the process:
Motion/Assign Controller/Path Constraint/Add Path-> select the line

However only the first letter of the text follows the track, the rest of the text is not distorted to follow the line and the whole text remains straight. I would like the other letters follow the line as the cars of a train follow a track.
Thank you for your help.

Try to make each letter a separate text and add a path constraint for each. You could then create a custom attribute that controls each letter or the word as a whole. This could lead to some interesting animations.

I hope that this helps.
