Tweening text

Corel R.A.VE. lets you animate text by tweening it along a path. You can also tween the text's properties, such as vertical placement and distance from a path.

You can only tween text that has a life span greater than one frame. For information about increasing the life span of objects, see "To increase the life span of a new object" on page 331.

When you move text along a path, you can tween the text's properties.

Corel R.A.VE. also lets you animate text without tweening it to a path, by treating the text as an object. For information about tweening objects, see "Tweening objects" on page 331.
