How to bevel text for a fun logo?

Asked by Doc_Zola (102points) November 5th, 2009

I’m working on a Candy logo and I see this great bevel on all the products at the grocery store. I’m wondering is there a filter for Adobe illustrator or a stand alone application?

what version of Illustrator are you using?
for CS4 go to Effect—>3D—>Extrude and Bevel

I’m using CS4. These just look like clean well thought out bevels. I could be wrong. Can you post images here?

you can post images using a service such as tinypic or photobucket and place links here

In Photoshop, select the Layer and click the Effects button. Select Bevel and Emboss, then tweak the settings.

< < remembers having to craft his own bevels from scratch along with caring about the 216 color web-safe palette.

Been using PS for over a decade so I get the layer effects approach but I’m looking for Vector based graphic out of the deal not a bitmapped one. Though the smart object feature may work now that all the apps in the suite are playing nice, nice.

Seems like a lot of logos have a similar Bevel –

How about the Illustrator 3D filter? Is that any better in CS4?
