Bending Text

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Can you please tell me is there a plugin for bending text, or a way to bend it.

I can move it horizontally etc, but can't make it bend in the middle?

Suggestions would be nice, thanks.

Go to the Layers menu and click Rotate/Zoom. The visual display should help you more than the plugin.

Yeah, I have tried that, it seems to turn the text, but not bend it in any way...

1. Create a square image large enough to keep a good quality of the text. (ex: 800x800)

2. Write your text centered and from size to size of the image with a little left/right margin.

...The text must be at 1/4 of the height from the top.

...(ex: for 800x800 image, the text must be around y=200 and the size you want but 100px maximum)

3. Press Ctrl+G to rotate the image.

4. Effect/Render/Shape3D, sphere: all default except:

...Texture map: full sphere map (or half sphere map repeat)

...Scaling: 1.50 (or adjust as you need)

...X axis rotation: 90°

...Light: uncheck

Tada!
