Tip #794: The Texture Adjuster
3D text provides a wealth of lighting, texture and format controls.
Hidden at the bottom of the Material section for 3D text – below where you select surfaces – are additional controls that allow changing the texture of each surface.
These controls vary depending upon which surface is selected. For instance, with Plaster, you can adjust:
- Color type
- Paint color
- Sheen (reflectivity)
- Surface texture
- Texture depth
One of the benefits to working with 3D text is the vast amount of control we have over the texture and lighting of the text.
If you haven’t explored these options yet, when you do you’ll discover a whole lot more texture control than you ever expected.
