I am trying to put some text onto the inner surface of a wedding band so the text needs to follow the curvature of the band. I have tried using 'plane2cylinder.fx but this only seems to give me a convex type of shape. Similarly with the text options of 'circle' or 'string'. Is there any way of achieving this effect?

Why don't you position the camera inside the cylinder? You can do this with the POSITION property of the camera layer.

For the text layer use the following settings:
-CIRCLE 2 (1st dropdown below the textbox)

You can now scroll the text with the 1st slider of the TEXT ROTATION property.

Thanks for the tip Michiel.
I need to keep my text in the same position relative to my wedding band.Why does BT not allow me to attach this text layer to the model layer?

I advise you to attach the text and the wedding band to the same container layer and move this container layer.
