    How do I create a gradient from the centre to edge of text?

    Dan Jacobsen

      Hi all,

       

      If I have text of different thicknesses and sizes can I create an effect where the centre line drawn through the text (almost like a very thin version of the text) is white and then there is a gradient out towards the edge.

       

      This is so I can use it to create a displacement map for Freeform to get a hard chiselled effect in 3D (like bevel and emboss layer style/hard chisel)

       

      I have tried blur and layer styles but they seem to rounded. The fact that the text is different thicknesses keeps thwarting me. never thought I'd uase that word.

       

      I'm basically looking at different ways I can use a disp map to give bevel effects on Freeform.

       

      Cheers
