TUTORIAL: making a lighted 3D text effect

This tutorial is about creating a stylized, beautiful, lighted 3D text effect. I hope it can be useful for you.

To make it by yourself, open this 3D text generator, so configure it like shown below:
- Rendering style: select the fourth option image;
- 3D model: select the first option image;
- Text: lighted (type as you need);
- Font size: Normal;
- Text depth: 20;
- Draw shadow: No;
- Margin: 15;
- Background color: 000000;
- Front face color: FFFFFF;
- Depth dark color: 000000;
- Depth bright color: FFFFFF;
- Font name: 22 03.

So you get this great 3D text (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- you should use a dark background to make the light more visible;
- if you intend to try other fonts, always select a curved and rounded font face, so the depth illumination will be more eye catching;
- you can make many astonishing 3D text effects by using this very powerful 3D text software.

Is there a text effect you would like to see here? You can ask for it commenting here or sending me an e-mail.
