I am trying to animate a piece of text rotating in a circle. In itself, this is a relatively easy thing to achieve; using
Adobe After Effects I created a string of text and used the
CC Cylinder effect (
Effects & Presets->Perspective->CC Cylinder) to create the rotation animation. Take a look at this
.gif to see my current result:
However, what I would like to accomplish is a more static rotation of the letters, that is, the letters rotating around an axis as individual objects instead of being mapped to an invisible cylindrical surface on which they rotate. Take a look at this example to see what I mean:
How might I be able to achieve this in After Effects?
UPDATE: Thanks to Cai's simple and effective solution I was able to create exactly what I was aiming for. Thank you very much.
