    Extrude text adding new face?

    Netcommercial Community Member

      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
