I stumbled across this 3D ring type I'd really like to replicate but have been unsuccessful so far. I'd say I'm of an intermediate skill level in Photoshop and more of a novice in Illustrator. Any help would be greatly appreciated! The example below was created in After Effects but I'd like to be able to create a static ring of text.
Create your text and add it to the Symbols Panel.
Draw a vertical line.
Use the Effect > 3D > Revolve.
Offsett the Revolve Effect and use Map art to apply it to the revolved object,
Check the Invisible Geometry option.
Thank you so much! Is there a way to create a spiral with this method too?
"Is there a way to create a spiral with this method too?"
Yes, use the shear tool and guides to create the symbol as shown at the top.
Here is a typical workflow in Illustrator.
Input text and add it to the Symbol panel.
draw a rectangle.
choose the menu "Effect > 3D > Revolve" and set the surface to "wireframe" and apply surface mapping.
Expand appearance and delete unnecessary lines.
Very cool… could i export that to an other 3D programm or aero? How?
No, it looks like 3D, but the result is 2D.
Thanks for answering. What program would you recommend to achieve such an effect?
I am not a 3D expert. It probably depends on what you want to achieve.
Photoshop has some 3D options, After Effects can animate these type of texts.
