Urgent Help Pls

Hi All,
Any idea as to how I keep text layers anchored to the plexus point cloud - so that when I rotate the cloud, the text layers move too, but text is always facing the camera - exactly like this http://vimeo.com/20712957

thank.
T.

I would create a bunch of lights to use as the plexus source, and then parent both the lights and text layers to a null object. Then you tell each individual layer to face camera by going to Layer->Transform->Auto Orient. Alternatively, you can use an expression like the one found here:
