I have a complex model that reads in keyframing information from a
large input file and accurately moves all the objects through their
correct paths. GREAT, everything works fine... now I've been asked to
add enhancements to the animation, specifically: I want to read text
from my keyframing input file and print it to the screen as part of
the animation. Is this possible? I know that the preview can report
frame numbers to the screen via some special keyscripting function.
I can think of two ways to do this
1) create objects ahead of time with the predifined text mapped on
them and then move them into view during the flic via a line in the
keyframing input file.
2) create a separate animation with the text objects and overlay the
two animations via video posting.
Both of these ideas seem very awkward to me and I suspect there are
easier ways to do this. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
