Universal Studios Logo
on Sep 18, 2005 at 5:02:47 pm


I have Adobe After Effects 6.0 Professional.

I would like to create my own Universal Studios logo only using Zaxwerks Invigorator (and not CC Sphere or whatever...).

Okay...creating the planet; pretty simple. But what about the text that moves around? (By the way, I don't have Adobe Illustrator). Is there some way I could create a text in Zaxwerks Invigorator that has a round shape that matches with the planet shape? Or is there some way I could create a text with a Distort Effect that looks round? Sorry if my english is bad, my native language's french. By the way, creating a text in front of the planet is pretty easy, but I just want it to have the same shape has the planet.

Thank's a lot!

If you offset the Z position of your Anchor Point and rotate along the y-axis, you'll get your text to move in a circular fashion. To get the roundish look, just apply Bulge and adjust to taste. Bulge will also look good when your text moves along the sides as it makes its rotation.

Salut Justin,

Have a look at this thread:

You would need Illustrator though to create your text... or you use the Invigorator text tool if you have the pro version.

Someone in the forum could also send you an ai file with your text in case you are not using a too fancy font.
