Handling the "text"-node

hi there!

i want to write a variable 3d-text on the surface area of a sphere. but because the “text”-node doesnt allow to use spraeds i had to use only one letter per “text”-node.(file is attached) If i want to write a big sentence i have to use many “text”-, and “gouraud”-nodes. does anybody know a easier way to handle this problem?

thanx a lot

just an idea: use a 3d modeller tool to generate a x-file with all your text, but the letters as seperate objects in the file. if you open this x-file in vvvv you should see a spread at the output of the XFile Node. now you can use spreaded transformations to handle each letter separately.
