Animate Text Typing in a Circle

By Paul Holtz

Pinnacle Studio users asked us if it was possible to animate text so that it types around a circle or an arc. While there isn’t a specific tool to do this, with a little outside-the-box thinking we were able to make it happen using the 360 video editing tools. Not only can you create text on an arc or circle, you can animate it fully in a myriad of ways using tools never intended for text.
