    Thank you for a wonderful short cut and more reasons to play with the settings and listen to more of you videos.

  • Vanderhellen says:

    Nice. CS3 or CS4?

  • manuelcop says:

    Very very Good



  • Sean says:

    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…

    Very Very Cool

  • Gary Spedding says:

    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.

  • Gary Spedding says:

    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.

  • Sudhir Kumar says:

    Gud use of appreance and a shadow effect in this section.
