- With Cinema 4D selected as your renderer,…any 3D text layer has the ability to become extruded.…You can still format your text as you would with 2D text,…including kerning and letting options,…except now, we can further stylize…and refine the look of the extruded text…by altering the parameters…found under the Text Layers, Geometry section.…Here, we'll examine a few of those parameters.…So in this first example, I've got a flat 2D layer.…Let's go ahead and enable these 3D layer for it.…And if it's not already,…go ahead and make sure that you have Cinema 4D…selected as your renderer.…
You can go through here and under the 3D render tab,…make sure Cinema 4D is selected.…This is what's going to allow us to extrude this out,…so let's twirl down our text layer.…And under Geometry options,…we now have extrusion depth down here.…Let's go ahead and put that up to maybe 100.…And we can rotate this around…and take a look at what's going on.…And notice that the color is completely flat.…We see the extrusion, but we're not seeing any shading.…
