3d advanced curved text


Recommended Posts

I don't have Shape3D. I already have installed it from another site.. but I don't know how to put that in Paint.net!

Can you help me? Because I wanna make things with Shape3D.

Thanx :wink:

Download the plugin, and save it in the Effect folder of the Paint.NET, usually this path (C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects)

Or for more help, visit this site, everything is explained with clear details:

Sorry, i cant make it. I havent gotten off the computer since i posted that reply and i cant make it. I thought if i filled the canvas with black and then made colored circles all around it then use the shape 3D sphere effect and then make the glass or chrome or whatever plates but it didnt work. I also tried about 5 other other methods but none of them worked either. But im sure one of the more experienced pdn users like Oma could make one. Im not sure if hed want to but im sure if he did it would turn out great.

Don't give up, you almost there, make sure your canvas is:

-square shape not rectangle,

-and fill it with black(as you did),

-then add a new layer (keep it transparent) and put the colored circles on this layer,

-then run Shape 3D on the black layer,

-and then run it also on the layer with circles with same stetting but make sure to use Half Sphere Map on this time on this layer,

-duplicate circled layer and Zoom blur only one layer once or twice and you're done.

EDIT/ I posed the method then I used it to make the image, check how much time I spent..?

About 10 minutes and this is first time with no additional effects.

Good luck.

when you hit the button to add a layer, in the layer window, the layer added is automaticaly transparent. when adding text to thyis layer, the words will be visible. do not confuse transparent with hidden/invisible

transparent means there is nothing added to the layer and you can see thru it, hidden(when you have unchecked the visibility box) means you cant see the layer at all

as far as the multicolour gradient-he mentioned it but didnt provide instructions- i guess becuase you dont have to use it--- anyway, once your text is on a transparent layer, using the magic wand tool set to 0 tollerance, hold shift and select anywhere outside your text, the press Ctrl-I , which will invert your selection, run the gradient, after which you will need to hit Ctrl-d or hit enter, to deselect

@mountnman, thank you very much for the explanation, couldn't explain it better than you.

@jackpelter, sorry for the confusion, try to be creative and apply your own effects,

I think this Tutorials rule is applying here in this case,"10. By and large, you should lean toward publishing tutorials that depict concepts and procedures well, and not just a specific result. We don't want to lead people by the hand; we want to help them become better. You know the old adage, "If you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he'll eat for the rest of his life." Let's teach, not just show"

However, if you have any question, please post it here, it doesn't matter how easy or difficult you think the question is,

and i thought it was.. "If you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he'll sit in a boat and drink beer for the rest of his life."

Look who saw your tutorial:

Actually, the text looks very nice in that image. It's absolutely everything else that makes me want to flee for my life and innocence.

Great tutorial yellowman!  I was curious how you made the ring. I tried using your method and it did not come out like yours.  What image did you start with?

 

I realize it has been a long time since the original post was made. So I hope you are still around and can respond. 

 

Thanks

@ Brazos, as I remember, here I used two halves for the ring when rendering it in the Shape-3D plugin.

 

This quick video will help you, the quality of the resulted shape is not that good, but I am sure you will understand the concepts.

 

Please let me know if have any question. :)
