Reverse Bevel Object

Recommended Posts

Is there a plug in that is like a reverse Bevel Object?   That makes things pop in instead of out? You know like uh if you bevel object a circle, it will make it look like a sphere. But if you reverse Bevel Object a circle it will make it look like a depression. And I can't provide a visual example of what I want.

Because light normally comes from above, in most cases beveling will look indented if the bright area is on the lower side and the dark area on the upper side, and raised if the bright area is on the upper side and the dark area on the lower side.

Turn your object 180 degrees and apply the standard bevelling. Then turn it back. This is how I make the concave center of these buttons.

I used Drop Shadow and Blur effect to create the inside shade in the first ball and then used Bevel object :

I love EER's method and the result is spectacular but I could not reproduce it on irregular shapes.

 

This is the best I could do using the method I used before :
