Hey guys.

you may have noticed that i use 3d texts in my designs and i thought lets explain with what program i make them.
so if anyone i wonderin how ill show you.

i use illustrator and xara 3d to give my text a three dimensional look.
now illustrator is a program with a manual and pretty expensive
so i looked around and found xara 3d.
Xara 3d is not free but has a 15 day trial.
Link Trial:http://www.xara.com/downloads/xara3d/
the full price is 29 dollars so not that expensive as illustrator.
if you have photoshop or gimp and you want to make a 3d text then this program is perfect for it.
you simple make the 3d text in Xara and add effects with photoshop or gimp
you can save your finished text to png on Xara so no cutting/removing background/rendering needed.

the program is easy to use.even my little nephew can use it and he is 12.
but if you are willing to try it and you need explanation im always willing to help.

here are a few designs where i used xara 3D

Hehe I have the program, and from the way you're using it I must say you are not using it to it's best.

i know there are enough things to learn.
i prefer finding out myself then getting a manual or something.
like i know you can use the effects and more from the program.
you can download thousands of effects.but i simply prefer photoshop to make my effects with.
