Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Patterned 3D type, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Effects (2018).
- [Instructor] I'd like to show you…how to create this kind of effect,…where the type is extruding from a patterned background.…This is going to involve using a 3D depth map.…Here's where we'll begin.…Coming to my layers panel, and I should just mention…before I continue, that I have switched to the 3D workspace.…Here I have two layers.…One layer of type.…Note that it is a rounded sans-serif,…and also that it is white.…And this sits on a background of neutral gray.…
When we make the depth map, the white…is going to come forward, the black is going to go back,…and the neutral gray will form the surface.…I got to select these two layers,…and then from my 3D panel,…I'll come to mesh from depth map, and create.…I now have a 3D object, and I can move that in 3D space.…If I click on it, I'll get my scale,…rotate, and move widget.…
And what I'd like to do is scale it along the z-axis,…so I'm just going to hover around here…until I see that, there we are.…Scale along z, and I can bring that in closer to the surface…or move it out further from the surface.…
