    Creating Circular Text

    I have been trying to figure out how to take a line of text, and make it make a circle so that I can rotate it around a globe. (Think "Daily Planet" in Superman).

    I have done a little bit of research, and have tried different things out... but there has to be an easier way. I am dying here lol. Here are a couple of links I have looked at on how to do it.

    Some help would be very much appreciated. If I could get it to look exactly like the Daily Planet... my little heart would skip a beat

    wow...

    Wow... Didn't even bother to look and see the exact same question two threads down. My bad.

    I did the individual rotation of each letter... and it worked and looks pretty good, I can still sharpen it up a little. If anyone can think of a way to take a sentence and turn it into a perfect circle easily... then that would be great. Even though this only took about ten minutes.

    Here is the link to what I made: http://lfsweb.com/training/GGlobeSpin/WorldSpin.swf

    Nope, I'm afraid that's the easiest way to do it. What you have looks pretty good.

    The file size is huge so it took a heck of a lot longer to load this one, but it does look better.

    If you can manage it, you might want to see if you can trim the file size down a bit.
