3D Text Editors (July 2007)
3D Text Editors are specialized tools which allow users to
create 3D images of text. The best tools provide a wide variety of
options for changing the look of the image while maintaining
ease of use.
This review is in work. Until the review is complete, I suggest the following
application for your 3D Text Editor program needs:
3D Text Editor Features
These are the minimum features that I expect from a 3D Text Editor. Each of
the candidate programs will be ranked against how well they implement these
features. As the review continues, the list of features may change.
- Surfaces (color/font/texture)
- Shapes (extrusion, rotation, beveling)
- Image capture/export
- Pre-defined projects/shapes
Almost all of the 3D image editors provide support for adding 3D text
to the image. In this review, I tried to limit candidates to program
which focussed on 3D text as their primary output.
These are the programs included in this review.
User Feedback & Suggestions
I welcome any suggestions on other 3D Text Editor programs that should be considered,
or suggestions on how better to review the selected programs.
