Choosing bevel parameters

Let's go a little bit deeper into the Bevel parameters and play around and see what kind of other shapes we can get. So right now, I've got this 45 degrees straight angle bevel. But I might also want to have curved sides. So I can go over here in the Bevel parameters and enable Curved Sides. Now, I won't see anything until I increase the number of segments here, because if there's only one Segment, then it's going to be a Straight Bevel. So I am going to increase the number of segments. And as I do this, watch what happens. Whoa! Okay, something strange just happened. Okay.

The Curved Sides kind of behaves a little bit strangely. It doesn't really have a lot of sort of intuitive rhyme or reason to it. Just increasing the number of segments there on the Curved Sides has resulted in the text bubbling out and doing kind of really freaky things. The solution to this is I need to adjust the height of this extrude here. So I have got this Level 2 extrusion. It's curren...
