View Full Version : Circular Text Path

10-18-2005, 01:18 AM
I have created a logo in Adobe Illustrator and need to make a 3D version. I tried to import the logo's text but the text doesn't import, only the circular path that I typed the text around shows. I need to type text on a circular path and I've never had to do it before. Can anyone tell me how to do it (LW 6.5)? I've tried "bend" but I know there has got to be a way to do it perfectly.

Much appreciation.

Did you first Convert to Outlines in Illustrator, and export as an .eps file? Then use Lightwave's Import .eps function. Your text on it's path should come in perfectly.

Thanks DoF, that was exactly what I needed. Is there any type along a path feature in LW?

Thanks again!

The Spline Guide feature might help here... check out this tutorial...
