TUTORIAL: making a cracked 3D text effect

We have already created several nice 3D text effects here. This one is not only 3D, but it's cracked too.

Generate it very easily by opening this free online 3D text maker and configuring its items like informed:
- Renderin style: 2nd item;
- 3D model: 2nd item;
- Text: cracked;
- Font size: Big;
- Text depth: 20;
- Draw shadow: Yes;
- Margin: 15;
- Background color: FFFFA0;
- Front face color: FF8000;
- Line color: 000000;
- Depth color: A00000;
- Font name: Gastada;

After calculating the text effect, you get this result (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- you need a special font to create the cracked appearance and that text creator has other fonts that are useful for this;
- I didn't use this rendering style by chance; for me, it's the one that turns the cracks more visible;
- you can create many eye catching 3D text effects by employing this free professional 3D text maker.

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