3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 11:24am On Dec 08, 2011
I had a question asked whether you can achieve 3D text without going through the hassle of learning high end programs like maya and 3Ds max, and though illustrator has a good 3d text option but its kind of limited. so allow me to show you Xara 3D maker, I will be messing around with this to show what this software is capable off. so stay tuned

Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 11:26am On Dec 08, 2011
the cost is $40 which is equivalent to 6.5k in naira value. here is their site http://www.xara.com/us/products/xara3d/ if you want to know more about it
Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 11:53am On Dec 08, 2011
i'm loving this software, its very easy to use.

Re: 3d Text Editing by sunnyhova(m): 11:14am On Dec 09, 2011
Hey dude,

You can achieve even better with Photoshop CS5, just create your text and select Reppouse from the menu bar to make it 3Dimensional.

Peace be unto you.

Ok sir, thanks for pointing it out.
Re: 3d Text Editing by desperatem(m): 2:52pm On Dec 09, 2011
Dis Ȋ̊ڪ kewl, but its not 3-dimensional enough.
Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 3:28pm On Dec 09, 2011
it is oh, just that I just left it in this view. I go try other views though
Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 5:00pm On Dec 09, 2011
How about these

Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 5:01pm On Dec 09, 2011
not really that it is the best for 3d text but the ease of creating such is just too fun.
Re: 3d Text Editing by desperatem(m): 11:24pm On Dec 11, 2011
Good job Ugo-2U. Can maya/3ds Max achieve something like this?

Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 1:12pm On Dec 12, 2011
any software can achieve that, including maya
Re: 3d Text Editing by desperatem(m): 4:44pm On Dec 12, 2011
But ℓ̊ have tried it b4 maya could not create d text like this. If Ʊ watch closely Ʊ notice dat its extrude inward from both sides Aπϑ maya cannot do that.
Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 4:50pm On Dec 12, 2011
hmmm, ok that is quite interesting. when I get home from work I will try it out although I have 3ds max but the principle should be the same. will get back to you in two or three hours. although I believe this can also be achieved easier with corel and photohsop and illustrator easier than maya
Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 5:16pm On Dec 12, 2011
Decided to test it out in corel draw and this is the result I got, like I said its easier to achieve with standard vector programes than with 3d modelling software

Re: 3d Text Editing by desperatem(m): 5:27pm On Dec 12, 2011
This Ȋ̝̊̅§ kewl, but corel draw cannot produce that type of texture Aπϑ color. When ℓ̊ get home ℓ̊ will try to do it with photoshop ℓ̊ will show u whatever ℓ̊ create.
Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 5:40pm On Dec 12, 2011
This is what I got Using XARA, I believe that its possible with maya when you extrude it normally and then change the type of camera used to view it

Re: 3d Text Editing by desperatem(m): 10:16pm On Dec 12, 2011
Yeah you got it. But ℓ̊ A̶̲̥̅♏ not sure if changing camera type matters, ℓ̊ think one will have to ‎​d̶̲̥̅̊Ơ̴̴̴͡ it manually by moving d extrude inward from both sides, although ℓ̊ have not tried it but it  should work
Re: 3d Text Editing by desperatem(m): 4:29pm On Dec 16, 2011
ℓ̊ did this with maya and rendered with mental ray

Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 8:00pm On Feb 27, 2012
I'll be honest with you, you can learn how to use the tools in under 1-2 weeks but to be good with grafix, that is a different story my brother.
Re: 3d Text Editing by desperatem(m): 8:06pm On Feb 27, 2012
Ugo is right. You can learn the basics under 1 week or more. But it takes time and creativity to be really good.

whatever gfx software you have, go on youtube and learn from vid tutorials..another good source is psdtuts.com keep goin at it and in a months time you'll look back and laugh at your old stuff. the best way to learn is by yourself, alot of techniques will be discovered by mistake whereas with taking directions, you produce expected results without exploring other areas.
Re: 3d Text Editing by ugo2u(m): 3:46pm On Apr 15, 2012
I agree totally for the most part
Re: 3d Text Editing by osasp(m): 4:00pm On Apr 18, 2012
