How to create 3D Letters

Jul 22, 2011

Is there an easy way to create these standing 3D letters.  I have a workaround (Infact I would say my husband came up with a neat way of doing it), but I was wondering if there is an easy way for this...

You can create a facsimile of this in PPT.

  • Start with a text box and type in the desired phrase with the desired font/color
  • Next select the Drawing Tools on the Ribbion.
  • Under Word Art you can select a syle if you like or leave it flat.
  • Select Text Effects and 3D Rotation
  • Select the desired view point
  • Next select box just under "Text Effects" in the lower right corner of the WordArt styles box.
  • Select 3d Format
  • Under Depth increase the Depth to the desired number.
  • Add any shadows or reflections your heart desires.
  • Now simply use the format painter and apply to other text.

Hopefully this was helpful.

It still works - I think Joshua was suggesting that you can apply the format painter in PowerPoint to other text boxes in PowerPoint. Once you get the text looking the way you want in PowerPoint, you can import it to Storyline. When you import, it will come in as a graphic so will not be editable once in Storyline.
