Roman Komurka shows how to use particles in After Affects to create 3D text instead of “faking it”… err technically this is still “faking it” – however you could have 3D text in After Effects by following a simple 99 steps and about an hour. There are lots of great things to take away from this tutorial. The process to the end result is not one of them. Sorry if I come of snide on this one again, and I mean no disrespect to the tutorial or the tutorial creator Roman, but if an employee at the shop created 3D text this way he would be fired or demoted to making and getting coffee. – There are seriously other great ways to get 3D text… Even if After Effects is all you can afford, there are plenty of free 3D packages and there are plenty of other solutions that would take seconds not hours. Time is money!
