Extrude text adding new face?

Nov 8, 2013 2:24 PM

HI All,

 

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?

 

Cs6 btw...

Thanks

nc

    Do this in Cinema 4D. A version of Cinema 4D is included with After Effects.

    Sorry. I missed the CS6 part. Still, there is no way to retexture a 3D object in After Effects.

    You can't import 3D Photoshop layers into After Effects.

    Blender is not tightly integrated with After Effects like Cinema 4D is.
