After Effects :: Extrude Text Adding New Face?

Nov 8, 2013

Not sure if this should be a PS ? or not.... I have often heard if you can do it PS you can do it in AE.
I want to change the face of my text. Not color as with RGB selection, but with a pattern or texture.
IE: Billet Aluminum face with rivets or Diamond Plate look.
Normally I would matte it, but I also want to Extrude it   For a "fat 3d look"
PS or AE?
Matte is not a renderable option using 3drt, Cheating it, using an alpha add mode and an alpha track is not getting a render. Is this a job for PS to create my text as a 3d text and then import it as a comp? Or will I lose 3d like in AI?

Photoshop Elements :: Adding Text And Applying Various Effects With The Text

Dec 17, 2013

I think I may have made a big error.  While adding text and applying (experimenting) various "Effects" with the text, I used the garbage can icon to remove the "Effect", thinking it is going to remove the 'Effect" from the text, until I realized I had to remove the "Effect" with the edit button, not the garbage can.  Have I now permanently removed the various "Effects" permanently or just off the screen?  How do I regain them back onto the menu column?  How many "Effects" should be visible in order to have the complete set?  This was my first experiment with the lettering effects and hope I haven't lost them forever.

3ds Max Modeling :: How To Extrude From A Face Without Selecting All Vertices

Feb 1, 2012

possible to extrude a face from selecting all the vertices that make up the face. If you just extrude the vertices the effect is undesired. and when you select all the vertices, hold ctrl, and switch to face selection it selects all the adjacent faces, not just the ones that are actually formed by the selected vertices.

Basically I would like this To turn into this on Ctrl+4

I remember seeing some one do it in a older version of Max, I'm on 2011 right now, is it possible?

Photoshop :: Adding Effects To Text Layers Now Causing Image To Disappear?

Dec 18, 2012

Ever since the latest update to PS CS6, when I add a simple effect to a text layer, like emboss, the working image disappears when I zoom in and out. Also, the layer effect does nothing to the type. It's almost like a dispay issue. When I turn the layer effect off, my image is visible again.

After Effects :: Extrude In Cinema 4D Lite?

Aug 17, 2013

Very excited to be using Cinema 4D Lite and I'm very imprssed with what you get out of the box.
I looked at the side by side table for all the cinema 4d versions and the table says C4D Lite DOES support extruding, but every time I try to extrude a face the quick keys don't work, the menus that a tutorial shows aren't there.I can do this basic modeling task in lite?

Illustrator :: Bevel Extrude 3D Effects Teardrop

Jan 31, 2013

I am using Illustrator and trying to recreate the following:

This was originally created in PowerPoint - TearDrop shape.  3d effect:  Bevel top type: circle. width 40 height 10. Nothing for the bottom.  Surface material Warm Matte and 3-point lighting.  Nothing else for depth/conture.  I'm not concerned with the shadow.  When I try to recreate in Illustrator I end up with something similair to below regardless how much I adjust things.
Notice the overlapping folds.  This is a single object comprised of a circle and square to get a tear drop shape however when I try to make it look like the above first object I can never get that nice crisp 45 degree line to the center, it is always curved or overlapping, or does not apply the effect to the center, leaving it very flat centered.  Adding light points in and moving does not work and I of course receive the "bevel self-intersection may have occurred".  I don't see a bevel option for "circle" and not sure how else to accomplish or steps that I may take.

Photoshop :: Adding 'texture' To A Replaced Face

Jan 19, 2009

I'm using PS CS3,

I have to take old black and white photos and replace the old faces with those of living people. The photos were scanned out of various photo books, and some of them were quite old. I used de-screening when I scanned them in, but there is still a 'texture' to the original photo and it doesn't look right when I put a nice, clear face off a digital camera shot to replace the original face.

I can buy a DVD tutorial from PixelPops to show me how this is done, but is there a simple way to do this so I don't have to spend the money? Yes, I can do a google search, but I don't even know what term to use for this particular process. I thought it might involve the healing or cloning tools,

Maya Modeling :: Adding Image To The Face?

Jul 12, 2012

I'm a beginner in Maya and have to model an object for college. I've modelled an iPhone 4 in Maya 2012 and I've added colour to it but i want to add an image to the screen face. I've added the image using lambert but the image is blown up and i don't know how to resize it. I've fiddled with the settings in '2d Texture Placement Attributes' but the only thing i've been able to do was rotate the image so it's not upside down, it's still blown up. Is there another editor window to resize it?

I've also tried using the UV Texture Editor but everything is a mess on top of eachother and everytime i move things around maya crashes . Is there any other way to add the image to the face?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Adding Pressure Loads To A Perpendicular Face

Nov 2, 2012

When adding pressure loads to a perpendicular face  inventor states that the pressure is applied uniformly to the selected face.As an example a disc of 300 mm dia(area= 70685 sq mm) with a uniform pressure load of 10MPa.

Is the 10MPa load input  construed by inventor as 10MPa per square mm or 10MPa over the entire disc area.which is the correct interpretation?

After Effects :: How To Get Face Features To React Along With Movement Of Body

Apr 13, 2013

All right so I'm animating a horse like creature with duik tools but I'm not sure how to get my face features to react along with the movement of the body. For instance I have the horse bring it's head down. Parenting was the first thing I thought of but when I parent the features; mouths, eyes, eye lashes, ears, etc; to the body it makes it to where they follow along with the body but not the right direction. Example; the mouth will still be facing to the right even if the head is looking down.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Can't Extrude Geometry Text

Jul 7, 2013

I'm fairly new to the world of CAD, and I was just working on a phone case for my friend when I tried to extrude geometry text, but couldn't because the OK and Apply options were greyed out. I tried embossing and making a hole, but they were greyed out for them too. I tried messing with the settings to see if I could fix it, but I still couldn't. I'm really confused right now, I remember doing something similar for a case I made for myself.?

VideoStudio :: X4 - Adding Effects To Movies

Dec 9, 2011

I recently purchased VideoStudio Pro X4. I have been making movies just fine, but now I am wanting to try some new things such as effects. Here are some things I would like to try, but I am not sure if VideoStudio has this capability:

1. Add explosions to movies.
2. Also other effects like lightning coming from fingertips.
3. I have seen in other video clips where people have added a mouth to various inanimate objects such as a wall or fruit or whatever. The object would remain still while the mouth spoke. I am not sure if this is clear or not.

I noticed that some have used Adobe After Effects. Is this what is needed? It seems kind of expensive.

Photoshop :: Adding A Few Effects To An Image?

Jun 8, 2006

I am looking to do is add a few effects.

how to do for the life of me is make the phone look skinny like an hourglass look and the second I would like the opposite and make it look chubby. Advice on how to achieve this would be great, I tried the transform/skew%distort&perspective tools but am unable to achieve the effect I invision because when I try to move a corner the other corners and pull points are affected. Sorry probobly doesn't make much sense. The distort tool was the closest I could get to the hourglass look but it was too skinny..

AutoCAD Inventor :: Extrude Text With Specific Font Type

Aug 21, 2012

I'm trying to extrude some text with the font type "CommercialScript BT". In Inventor 2011 this was not a problem. In Inventor 2012 and 2013 I get the error:   

Create extruded feature failed
Part4: Errors occurred during update
Extrusion3: Could not build this Extrusion

Self-intersecting loop found in this profile.  Remove the intersection by adding a sketch point at curve intersections or by changing non-profile geometry to construction geometry.

Is there a way to solve this? I have tried to extrude other fonts without any problem. I can also extrude one single letter with the font "CommercialScript BT" without any problem but as soon as I writes a word I get the error.

AutoCad 3D :: Make Outlined Text From Illustrator Extrude Properly

Jul 16, 2012

I am currently trying to make a bracelet with text engraved in the outside of it with autocad, and my current problem is that I have to make the text 3D before I can subtract it from the bracelet. I am using autocad for mac, which means I dont have the express tools, most notably textexp. I am fairly sure that, without other programs, making 3d text with autocad for mac is impossible. I have tried making text in adobe illustrator, outlining it, and exporting it to autocad, but when I explode it (with the default explode command) and extrude the text, it looks like this:

As you can see, very few of the letters get properly extruded, and some arent even effected at all. I've tested other fonts, and they all have the same problem, albeit with some differences in exactly which letters are changed. Except papyrus, in which none of the text gets extrudedhow to make outlined text from illustrator extrude properly, be my guest! The same goes if you have a different way to make 3D text.

VideoStudio :: X6 - Adding Effects To Motion Tracks?

Apr 23, 2013

I have a clip where I have tracked the motion of two eyes (not the eyemovement, but the location). The tracking is awesome by the way. The placeholders are following the movement very good. My goal is to have some kind of effect on the eyes (scary, sci-fi etc), like lens flare coming out of them. But I can't figure out how to add this effect to the motion I have tracked. I have tried adding the effect to the place holders, but it looks very ugly and they are still just a couple of squares.

how I can add an effect to a motion track like this..?

After Effects :: Transparent Smoke Text After Effects CS5.5

Feb 27, 2014

I've made a fabulous Smoke Text effect that  I then insert the .mov file into Final Cut Pro.  The smoke effect I downloaded from the tutorial has a black background and therefore when rendered out, it's a basic white text against a black background.  Once in FCP, I have to turn the file's opacity down in order for it to layer over a video file and not black out what I layer over it.
How can I make the file transparent?  A simple toggle of the transparency grid isn't going to do it.  I need to make or find a video of smoke that is transparent?

After Effects :: Adding Layer That Has Different Aspect Ratio Or Exporting Transparencies?

Aug 19, 2013

CS6 on Windows 8
I have a project that is currently in 720x534. I would like to add a layer behind it that has the same height, but is wider and I don't want to mess up all the layers that are done in 720x534.
If I try to change the composition settings, it stretches out my original work.
I've tried creating a new project with the wider composition setting and simply importing the original video to layer over top. That works, except that I lose the transparencies of the original.
How can I either add a layer to a project that has a different aspect ratio without affecting the other layers OR export a video with transparencies.
