Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with 3D type, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Effects (2018).
- [Instructor] Here I'd like to work with…some basic 3D options to create…this horror movie title card.…Here's my starting state.…So I have, at bottom, a layer of solid color.…I've converted this to a smart object…so that I can apply a film grain filter to it…and a lens correction filter which is adding…the vignette in the corners.…The type is in a black letter type face…called Eskapade Fraktur, which is available on Adobe Fonts.…
First thing I need to do is select my type layer,…come to the 3D menu, and…choose New 3D Extrusion from Selected Layer.…That's going to give me a 3D object on a ground plane,…indicated by the red guide.…I can move this back and forth in 3D space,…along the z axis, which is indicated by the blue line,…and if I were to mouse over this widget,…come close to the center I'll see a tool tip,…Move on z axis, and I can just move…it backwards or forwards along the z axis,…but I'm just going to leave it where it is,…and first of all, coming to the Properties panel,…I'm going to reduce the amount of extrusion to 90 pixels.…
