DirectX learning question...

Hi everybody and actually I have some interest (DirectX programming)...

My first program is making a simple Tick Tack Toe program using DirectX.
I want to make my own animated text. Is it possible?

And just curious, does DirectX support animated text? Learning DirectX programming is good, or bad guys? I have no idea...Because I just see it's too complex... :(

DirectX (and OpenGL) supports every graphical possibility. However, not everything comes in the form of a function. With that being said, chances are you may have to implement your own text animation. Besides, you'd learn nothing if everything is done for you.

The only thing I can recommend to you at the moment is either start using DirectX and/or read DirectX 9 - Introduction to 3D Game Programming by Frank Luna.
