How to Create 3D Text Effect in Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Great video Jen. All totally understandable with no missing steps. Nicely paced too.

I have two very small issues which I think might need to be taken into account:
1. At about 6:45, when the “dark” layer is clipped inside the “main” layer, we can see at the top-right of the “r” that there is a gap between the text and the shadow (see first attached image). Not a major problem but, once you notice it, it spoils the effect a little.
2. The border (“stroke” layer) of the final text is larger than the ‘extrusion’ so the border has a kind of ‘lip’ on it (see second attached image). This may be what was wanted but it looks a little strange to me.
However, both of these issues are easily fixed using only the techniques shown in the video so it might be nice to append some ‘viewer exercises’ to the end of the video pointing these issues out and giving hints as to how they can be done.

These are very minor issues though and shouldn’t detract from the video at all. I’m sure lots of people will learn something from watching it. Good stuff.
