Not enough information to make a good suggestion. Is this interface on some kind of device that you see? Does it exist by itself in 3D space? In either of these 2 instances, I'd precompose animated text over the layer in question in 2D.... but your needs may be more complex.
Care to elaborate?
The interface is mocked up in photoshop, so I'll be exporting multiple screenshot pngs of the app and then moving a camera around. The png will essentially sit in 3D space with a blurred out, almost infinite background look... similar to a look found here @ 1:40 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVf6LRFI740
So, I'm thinking the appropriate workflow is to take each screen and anmiate the text as 2D, precompose, and then drop into my "infinite" background where I can move the camera around, and also add that wiggle to the precomped screen + text
...does that make a little more sense?
I'd also like a ticker to be featured atop. So so far, in my precomp I have (all 2D):
1. The interface png
2. The typewriter text animation
3. Ticker scrolling horizontally left to right at the top. Is this achieved with offset?
That sounds right to me. Once in the main comp, you can treat it as a 3D layer, and all should be well.
