Hi Brandon.

To distribute letters in an arc (easily), you'll want to use ProAnimator 4.0 (coming soon).

If you use the Invigorator in After Effects, you'll have to distribute the letters by hand
(or put each letter in an individual Set and use some fancy AE scripting).

Hey Matt,

It is a shame there isn't any known beta testing program with Zaxwerks.
Anyhow, I hope a couple of things will make it into ProAnim 4!!!

1) The possibility to remember the font just used, instead of defaulting to Time News Roman, when you hit Ctrl-T! The font preview add-on will also be greately appreciated, just like in CS2 (Adobe).
2) The ability to duplicate the existing text object, complete with its current animation and keyframes. That way, one can easily edit the duplicated text and just shift it. At the moment we can duplicate the object, but it ignores its animation.

Regards

Max

Hi Max.

Thanks for the suggestions.

We'll consider #1 -- which would be a useful feature.

As far as #2, once you're happy with a track's animation (in ProAnimator),
you can save it as an Object Animation Preset (use the Object Animation menu in the Animation window).
Once it's a preset, you can apply it to another track, even after loading up a different scene.

Hi Max.

I should also note that PA 4.0 has a Duplicate Track menu option in the Track Commands menu.
That should make things easier for you.
