I am trying to animate a spinning 2d doughnut shaped wheel, with a few pieces of text on the side of the wheel, but I would like the text to remain leveled so that it remains legible as the wheel rotates.
So I can make my doughnut rotate by parenting it to a null and rotating the null, however, simply trying to parent the text to the wheel does not allow the text to remain leveled because the wheel is rotating in a clockwise motion.
I found an expression for the position that animates the text in a circle, see below, but it does not seem to allow me to control the speed.
You set the anchor point of the text arc to the center of the donut. To make an expression for the rotation of the text, drag the pickwhip to the Rotation value of the null and release. Multiply that expression by -1.
For example, the donut will rotate 60 degrees, and the text by -60. It will stay in place.
