hi,

i want to do a very accurate 3D text wrap, something like
wrapping a program title around a curved desk like this one:

My only solution so far is to make a text layer 3d and then rotate a mask on the x-axis and then rotate the text back up using per-character 3D.

Is there an easy solution to this? Should I be in Photoshop/Illustrator?

Thanks

You can fake it using CC Cylinder.

thanks,

how about if you are wrapping it round an irregular 3d shape
like an object with rounded corners or a plain that is flat and then has a bulge then reverts to straight?

Cheers

No. Remember, you said circle, so It follows that something that's cylindrical is okay. Now you're changing the rules.

I'm not changing the rules i'm just asking another question.
Your answer was great for my first question

Any help much appreciated

Okay -- now you need a third-party plugin, because AE can't do it straight out of the box. Look at 3D Warps by Zaxwerks.

The mask you mentioned using in your per-character 3D solution (which is the best solution AE has to offer) can be any shape.
