Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Tweaking bevel settings, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
So, working with Bevel Presets is cool, but if you really want to unlock the…power of the bevel, then you need to be able to start from scratch, and work with…your own custom bevel settings.…That's what we're going to talk about in this movie, and also in the next movie.…Now, the first day that I had a chance to play with Element, I was really inspired by…all of the choices that you have when you bevel,…so I made this 3D text, and I made this little animation. We kind of are…flying through this wall, and then we turn around, and see that it's just this 3D text.…
And really what this is,…this is one single layer of text itself, one little component of text, and one…instance of Element,…and what I did is I played with the bevel settings; I extruded them.…And so all of these ridges and valleys; this is just from the text, from…extruding it, and adjusting the bevel settings.…Now, we're actually going to make this in the next movie, but I just wanted to…share with you first that there is so much potential here when you're talking…
