maya 2011 curved text on flow path tutorial

Stuart Christensen takes a look at some of the problems when you assign text to a flow path (especially going in a perfect loop) in Maya 2011, and more importantly… how to fix them!

“Sometimes you need to have a perfect 360 degree looping text effect and the traditional attach to flowpath method won’t work due to limitations in the way text is natively attached to the flow path in Maya. It’s annoying at best, so in this tutorial by Stuart Christensen we will explore an alternative method of creating curved text attached to a motion path to give you perfect 360 curved text loop on a motion path. Enjoy!”
