Text Tool: Special text Effects
There are quite a few effects that you can produce with your text. for example, you can create angles text by using the turning handle on the text sprite. Just turning text can create a very interesting effect in a composition as you can see below.
A 3-D effect can be achieved by applying the Bas Relief effect from he Effects palette to a text sprite, as you can see below. Start with a light coloured text sprite to make the Bas Relief effect work like its below Yellow and orange work well together.
Applying the Relief filter from the Effects palette which is in the outlines group makes your text stand out. In the pictures below the text has the Relief filter applied.
