Rubber Band Text

One of the coolest new features in the Text Tool palette is the capability to put text on a curve and then distort it. Because it works with the outline data of the font, it remains a clean vector image until it is rasterized after it's warped. This project will explore the Warp Text features and provide a snappy 3D animation sequence!

Getting Started

There are many ways to use the Warp Text feature, but this project will focus primarily on one. You'll have a blast experimenting with all of them!
