How to animate text to do a barrel roll/spin
on Apr 20, 2012 at 6:27:07 pm

Hey guys,

I am trying to get my text to roll on itself but every time I try, the text disapears while it is doing the barrel roll effect. I am trying to create the same effect that is at the end of this commercial:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLYVu7w7FpA&feature=relmfu

Anyone know an easy way to do this?

Make sure your anchor is in the center of your text. You can use the pan behind tool to accomplish that or this name your price script that will Repositions the Anchor Point for you without moving the text.

Now enable the layers 3d switch and just rotate the x axis 360 degrees(or more). It looks like they have motion blur turned on also which would make it so the text never completely disappears.

The should text look very thin and might seem to disappear when it's at the 90 and 270 area, basically when it's laying flat.
