Stuff to Experiment With

Also bear in mind that the original path shape doesn't have to be just a 2D shape. Try experimenting with your circle by applying an EditSpline modifier, selecting SUB OBJECT, and VERTEX in the little drop box to the right of that. Once done, you can use the move tool to move the vertexes of the circle up, down, left, right, whatever. You'll notice the text moves around to follow wherever you place those vertexes.

If you want an object to merely follow a path without bending and warping (say - a rocket ship flying on an obstacle course), you need use a different method - a controller (instead of a modifier), which we will go into in a different tutorial.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
