    Why can’t I watch any of these videos in Safari browser? It’s a brand new Macbook Pro, with the latest updated everything. I wind up having to use Firefox to view your videos (even though I can use Safari to view flash videos on every other site I go to!) There’s gotta be something messed up in your encoding…

    Corey, Again very cool stuff. Also nice to make it Extruded (3D) but I am having that grey-box effect around the central word. What tricks are there to render as 3D without that annoying outside box? Otherwise it can be saved as a Graphic style. Please revisit this if there are some ways to extend this to a neat clean 3D graphic style.

  8. Gary Spedding (Reply) on Friday April 17, 2009

    One way to avoid the box is to avoid using the drop shadow but the words are still not all perfectly shaded/colored – so some odd things go on with 3D’ing this. If these little annoyances could be allieviated this would be great for creating reproducible 3D logos and flourishes etc., for artwork.
