Linking text on path with motion tracking
on Dec 19, 2012 at 6:43:38 pm

Hi there,
I'm quite new to the AE and i want to achieve this effect as on the screenshot. However I'm not sure how to link tracking data of the blade on the wheel that i placed in null object with text on path created with pen tool and text. When the wheel turns from lower right corner and goes counter clock wise I want the web page to appears in the frame along with it. And to rotate itself organically around the blade to achieve the results as on the screenshot.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Thanks

Using a Text Layer's Path Options property does not add any difficulty level to applying the tracking data. Simply track the bike wheel and apply the tracking to the Text Layer, which you would have already applied its Path Options.

Should you be tracking with mochaAE/mochaPro, you will want to enable Rotation for tracking options/movement. This tutorial covers tracking with z-rotation,

Hi, thanks for the answer. After I tracked the wheel and applied it to the Text Layer which has the Path Option applied, how do I make this Path to organically rotate around the wheel, like if it was written on it?

Thanks

If you've accomplished the tracking routine, the rotation and position of the text layer should track/follow the wheel. If things are amiss, then check/adjust your text layer's Anchor Point.
