NextPreviousHomeProblem getting text to follow photos in Carousel.bt

I want to add text with the photos in the template Carousel.bt. I added one as a test and used the same parameters as the photo that I want it to be with. The first rotation is fine, but the second rotation is different. The photos all remain facing towards the camera. The photos have a rotation from 0 to -360 for the second rotation. However, the text doesn't remain facing the camera when I use the same thing: 0 to -360 from 10s to the end. The text is in the same container as the photos. (BT 14.1.0.8)

How do I get the text to stay towards the camera for the second rotation?

Set the Physics dropdown to Accelerate and decelerate for the text layer.

Because the Picture is also set to this Physics effect.

That was too simple! I should have seen that but, that's inexperience for you. I checked everything but the Physics Effects.

Thank you,

I think it actually looks very nice. Much more interesting than a text glued to its picture.

You should cherish and exploit "errors" like this!

Hi Michiel,

Serendipity. You are quite right, of course. I liked the effect and realized that working with this "error" as a starting point would help draw attention to the text. The text should disappear when the image moves to the back, and my error succeeded in doing this.

However, I was trying to reproduce something similar to what someone was asking for on the Vegas forum. There is text shown just below the photos and I just wanted to try getting the text to follow the image to show that it could be done.

I must spend more time with BT.
Thanks,
John
