Long wrapped text on 3D object + effects
Hello,

I have to output dynamic text onto cylinder surface (like label on can) and when cursor will be moving over individual chars I need to outline and glow char under cursor.

I thought about render text to texture and apply glow at some 3d area around point (related to char under cursor) but got 2 problems:
1. How to calculate exact point coordinates for char under cursor and find corresponding 3d point and somehow corresponding char from text ?
2. How to outline (actually output 1 char over existed texture on cylinder) with appropriate transformations.

Need your advices.
