Invigorator Text to Fit Around a Round Object?
by Tom Edison on Jan 8, 2008 at 4:44:41 am
I have developed a great looking personalized logo modeled after the "Warner Bros. Pictures Shield" logo as seen before the studio's movies (it's for a school project and not actual publication.) The final touch to the piece (before animating) would be to add the 3D text that is written on the banner around the shield. Is it possible to create and bend the 3D text to rest properly on the round banner? I have not found a way to do this.

P.S. I am new to Invigorator but the many tutorials here have taught me a great deal is a very short period of time. Thank you!!

It is possible but fairly labor intensive. I would recommend starting at the end of the animation, manually placing the text where it needs to be, and working backwards. Use the "top view" to see that the letters are properly angled around the ribbon.
