Kanon, michiel and Dani like this!

I built some tracks for a tank with a simple eps where I put a text with "i" and aligned to form the tracks.
Is there an effect or can you invent (Michiel) an effect that rotates the text along the EPS without leaving it?
everything is very simple just 2 EPS and some lines of text, for the cannon a picture with cylinder effect. It's only a test !!

I know that Vincent had made a tank, but how did he move the tracks?

Writer and writer offset have a point where the trapped object exits the path.
Can not start again from the beginning?
So an EPS can be used as a camera path, but I continue without having to use the writer command from scratch?
In the case of characters come out of the path.
It would take a new command to make them move along this path (In case they fill it all, not in the case of a single word)

the only way I found is with the textures on the EPS and use the speed command.

but mine was a test, I do not need to make tracks for tanks, it was on the use of EPS to rotate around objects

Franco it's a good solution

Yes, Vincent, but I was looking for a solution to the wider EPS problem,

What is your problem exactly with wider EPS ?

vincent, 3 years ago

I did not understand if a text, an image or the camera, can continue to run in a EPS and if there is an effect or command to do it.
For example in the image of the "heart" that I have attached if I try to turn around the letters to the EPS, they leave the path. It would be nice if there was a command that would run the object around the EPS continuously. If I have to move the camera together with the EPS I have to move it with "Writer" but when I get to the end I have to restart it from the beginning by inserting other frames, if I want to take another ride. If there was a command that you write 720 and it makes two turns it would be nice. So also for the text, especially if it completely fills the EPS as in the case of the "heart" that I posted.

In my opinion text and texture are different cases. I agree, it would be great if text position never quit the sketch path (a kind of loop mode)

Yes exactly !
