Make your type shine with this combination of layer effects in this video.
- [Instructor] Okay, let's see how we can create…this metallic, specifically chrome, effect.…This is the finished version, and here is my starting state.…Now, the first point I want to make it that your choice…of type is really going to play a big part in this,…and my type started out looking like this.…You can see that it's missing the underline,…it's missing the C connecting with the H,…and it's missing the O connecting with the M.…The typeface I'm using is Voltage,…which is available on Typekit.…
Voltage has a number of stylistic alternates,…one of which is a C that connects with the following…character, and another of which is this underline.…These are all accessible through the Glyphs Panel.…What it doesn't have is an O that…connects with the following character,…so to create that I actually made a copy of the M…and I flipped that copy through 180 degrees,…and I just used this connecting spur right here…to join it with the O that precedes it,…so that's the first point, take some time…to get the type right before you start applying the effects.…
