    This is not a place to ask others to do some work for you.
    And besides that, what you ask can be done really easy within xara 3D.
    Just take a look into the program.
    be aware, not to become a ware.

    We will "help" you as much as you want. But will not do the work for you.

    Have you read the first post in this thread? - It includes very detailed instructions.

    Which program do you need help with?

    Well, you don`t need to know a lot about computers for this.

    Open Xara 3D, press the Aa button, type "woodland fc"
    choose the font you like on the left, they will be shown.
    Then choose the animation option, and choose the button
    that is red lined in the picture below.

    And at last, in the file menu above, you choose "export animation"
    ( or ctrl+shift+x) and you choose if you want to export in gif swf etc.

    And then you have your spinning words.

    If you would like a different spin, check out the other buttons.
    Play with the program a bit.

    (And the next question will be, how do I get rid off the background
    text sample, and we have to reply, buy the product. )

    Thanks for the guide simsmj. I was hoping I'd be able to use a png or gif with transparency images as my shape. So how can I make my own shapes to use in Xara 3D6? What did you use to make your current avatar?

    Hello, D.Realms, welcome to the forum.

    The software we tend to use for vectors in this site is one of the Xara applications, the current flagship of the fleet being Xara Designer Pro. Xara3D is a standalone app which takes vector shapes and extrudes them, giving a solid 3-dimensional look. Such solid objects can be given a paint job by importing a texture in the form of a bitmap of some type, like bmp, png, jpeg, etc. The solid objects can be animated, but the shapes making them up cannot be edited in Xara3D itself, except for extrusion depth and type and size of bevels.
    Xara3D is unable to use transparency in these textures, but in exporting an image or animation, it can make the background transparent, if the target format itself permits it.

    The avatar you refer to, (the spinning hollow earth) is quite a complex construction, definitely not for the faint-hearted! There is a tutorial describing it here.

    Mike
