Learn how to extrude text using geometry options, change the face colors of a 3D text, and use text animators.
- [Instructor] Alright we are continuing from the same point we left off in the previous movie. First I'm going to change the magnification to fit up to 100%. And then I'm going to fold up the properties of the layer, and then fold it back down. We're already finished with the transform, now it's time to add some extrusion. So go ahead and trill down the Geometry options, and I'm going to start by giving this guy an extrusion depth of 200 pixels, I'm also going to enlarge the bevel depth from two to five, and I'm going it change it from none, to concave.
Now in order to see what I've created, I'm going to go to this timing, 2:00, and we can see that indeed, we've created some sort of an extrusion. But it is very difficult to see what we are getting here, because everything is wide, we need to separate the colors between the different faces of this 3D object that we've just extruded. And in order to do so, we need to use this animate menu, click on it once, and over here you have access to the different panels or the different sides of your 3D object, in our case this huge five digit.
So I'm going to start by changing the color, for the front and using this RGB option, this will colorize it, with the default Adobe red. I'm going to change it in a moment but, already you can see how it is going to work. I'm going to make sure that now under animator one, which is what we've just added, I'm going to use this add menu to add to the same texture that I've created in this case just the red color, additional color, and in this case I'm going to use side, color, once again I'm going to change it to RGB.
Now I'm going to change those two colors to a specific color values, and I suggest you do the same if you want to get a similar result to mine, but of course you can go your own way here. So first I'm going to click on front color, and then click on this color sheet, and I'm going to use the HSB, which is hue, saturation, and brightness, in order to change the colors. So let's start with the hue, I'm going to start with the value of 240 degrees, then I'm going to press stop to move to the saturation, change it to 27%, and for the brightness, I'm going to reduce it a bit to 90%, and then I'm going to click okay.
Next I'm going to do the same for the side color, this time of course picking different colors, so for the hue 244, so for the hue 244, the saturation wants to be in this case 84%, and the brightness will be 30, so a dark blue color which will match the design that we've created previously. Now let's go to the beginning, and once again I'm going to press space bar, so we can get a sense how it is working after we've modified the colors, and animated into place.
Now it looks much better, but still it lacks a little bit of details in terms of a little bit of details in terms of shadings, and shadows, this is what we're going to add to it in the next movie.
