Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with bevel presets, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
One of the things that adds a lot of character to the 3D objects that we create…in Element is to be able to add bevels to the edges.…This can make things smooth, or otherwise add more texture, again, to these edges.…If I zoom in here, you could see a little more closely what this bevel is doing. It's pretty cool.…What I am going to do is, in this Bevel Presets Final comp, I'm just going to…click Scene Setup, just so we can see it without the lights, and we could see…what's going on with this beveled edge.…
I'm going to zoom out using my wheel mouse, and so you could see this edge; this…is just one text layer,…but with this bevel, it adds, again, a lot more interest to what we can do with this 3D text.…Very cool!…So, let's look at how to do that.…I'm going to go ahead and click this little X here to cancel out of this, click…Yes, and let's go over to Bevel Presets Start, where we have just the plain text.…And it's holiday season, hence the inside joke here.…I'm going to go ahead and click on Element, and go back to our Path Layer 1, and…
