Hello…I'm brand new to Affinity Design and I want to do a 3 dimentional text effect.

Is there a way to do that effect here in AD ?

 

Thank you,

Juan

Hi,

 

is this sufficient?

Simple add some effects in effects -> 3d

If you wish add some shadows.

Cost me maybe 20-30 seconds.

 

Greetings

 

PS: If you wish perspective transformations: That feature is on the roadmap and will be available soon.

3D software is far better for 3D text and a good number of packages will open .Ai files. But perspective based transforms would be great. And the affinity guys will hopefully do a great job of it.

I use cheetah3d for 3d text. export svg and import svg into cheetah3d. extrude texture and render import and place your image in AD and go from there.

Vector 3D would be great. Old Adobe Dimensions was really good app, but when it got rolled into Illustrator it was not so great anymore. And no, current dedicated 3D-softwares do not output vector, only bitmap.

Not entirely correct: Blender Freestyle can export to SVG, and an add-on script exists to export the view to SVG. Also interesting to note is that SVG animations can be exported as well.

 

Outlines work really well. Compared to Dimensions smooth shading is not possible.
