Adobe’s Russell Preston Brown has
just posted a video demo showing how to create 3D text from a 2D text layer in Photoshop CS5 Extended using Repoussé.
The video covers the basics of the Photoshop CS5 Extended Repoussé feature. It then goes on to show how to extrude text, and texture the text. It also covers the new Ground Plane Shadow Catcher feature to create a cast shadow from the 3D text onto a surface.
The video : “Creating 3D text in Photoshop CS5“
Don’t forget to view in full screen mode. It’s worth it. Enjoy.
