Not sure if this should be a PS ? or not.... I have often heard if you can do it PS you can do it in AE.
I want to change the face of my text. Not color as with RGB selection, but with a pattern or texture.
IE: Billet Aluminum face with rivets or Diamond Plate look.
Normally I would matte it, but I also want to Extrude it For a "fat 3d look"
Any suggestions? PS or AE?
Matte is not a renderable option using 3drt, Cheating it, using an alpha add mode and an alpha track is not getting a render.
Is this a job for PS to create my text as a 3d text and then import it as a comp? Or will I lose 3d like in AI?
FWIW- Cs6 "Old Version" using 3Drt and a reflection layer. I am going to also try as an enviro layer and see if I get a better result. Thought this might help for those on the Old CS6 platform, who do not have $$$ for Cin4d ATM.
You need to pre comp the RT3d beveled text as above and then you can bend it in a master or final comp, if need be. FWIW
here is using an Enviro Layer. The key is have it ACCEPT Reflections see CP for details. IF my JPG was of bigger and better rez it would be much cleaner. I suppose I could whip one up in AI or PS.
Anyways if you are trying to change the face of your font and have it extruded and beveled this will cheat it.
