TEXT MANIPULATION

It may seem traitorous for me to ask this question in a Painter forum but here goes.

I'm looking for a cheap software that will allow me to create artistic text. For instance I need to be able to have text that starts large in the foreground and gradually disappears as it approached the vanishing point. Also I need to be able to have text follow whatever wild and crazy path I choose. And of course I need to simply type this text in from my keyboard, and it does what I have described.

I'm using Corel Painter 11. I'm still a newby with it, but it doesn't seem heavily dedicated to using text as an integral piece of an overall artistic creation.

Thanks in advance for whatever help anyone can provide.

    Text approaching a vanishing point can be done with Painter by skewing with the transform tool

    Following a path is more complex, you can use Corel Draw for that. Every text can be made to follow a vector path easily. Under text follow path. You can subscribe to Corel Draw on a monthly basis so it's not costly, and you can try the trial too.
