TUTORIAL: getting a transparent 3D text

Sometimes we need a text that attracts attention but is discreet at the same time. In this case, one useful option can be to make a transparent 3D text.

To make this text by your own, you can use this free 3D text generator and set it this way:
- Rendering style: select the first option image;
- 3D model: select the 4th option image (scroll the list);
- Text : transparent (type yours);
- Font size: Big;
- Text depth: 20;
- Draw shadow: No;
- Margin: 15;
- Background color: FFFFC0;
- Line color: 600000;
- Font name: 11S01 Black Tuesday.

That's the image we get (click to enlarge):
