Adding text while animating

Postby sanchit » Sat Apr 18, 2015 5:42 am

I have a single frame which has 600 zones and I am animating them. I want to add a dynamic text(just a small number) which changes after every 50 zones. 'Add text' tool only helps to write text for a single zone. Using that takes a lot of time. Is there any other possible solution?
Thanks in advance.

Look for ATTACHTEXT in the scripting guide. There is a parameter about which zone to attach it to. If that's what you need, you can record a macro which animates stuff, open it, and edit it to animate 50 frames, update the text, animate the next 50 frames, update the text, and so on. (The macro language supports loops.)
