Thanks for the great tutorials, yours are consistently the best I've seen. Just one question. I am trying to use this method with a logo but when I make the logo 3D, it makes the logo turn black-ish and it looks terrible. I've tried all different solutions but nothing seems to work. Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I think the reason is that the light is behind the text so there is shadow on the text .. that happened with me before.
I hope that was helpful.

Hey!
Your tutorial is very good and I like very much :)
But I have a question... in the layer of text you have a diferent icon that I have.. I have the text icon and you have an icon like a movie flick.
Sorry for my english, isn't very well

@ Payton and others who want fire. There is a tutorial at http://ae.tutsplus.com/tutorials/vfx/create-fairly-realistic-fire-using-cc-particle-world/

Yup and it's in AE! I'm sure you could use this and tweak it up a bit, but it's great the way it is!

Hi, this is for Andrew. I’m Russell from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I watched your free tutorial NO. 17. 3D Reflections . Nice work man. I want to know, if I want to add another text after yours (Creative Cow) with the same effect you used what should I do? Re-create text and effect that you did before? It will be boring. Pleas help me cause I’m at beginner position and sorry for my English. I’m not well in English. You can send me your information at my e-mail, russel_see@yahoo.com

Amazing. Really.

But one thing must say. I tried my best to create reflections but failed. I ended up with applying mirror effect to create reflection, precomposed as 2d and applied on 3d. Reflection was there but movements (other than x,y) was not possible.

Too many hidden tools. Adobe is bad. Logic is dis respected in AE. Combustion far far better and simple. Costs less than AE also.

hey andrew... love the tutorial, i've watched at least 20-30 of them... you are amazing at effects, but i was wondering if you could make another on 3D rooms and halls or something... like, a maze or FIRE i want 3d (or 2D) FIRE any advice?

it could be a maze where a wrong turn makes you catch on fire, that would be a fun game!

i'm sure you could get like a hundred little micro- robots and send the through and the one that make it out could come back

but it malfunctions and die around the corner so you give up and commit suicide... or something like that:)

i want FIRE!!!!!

Just wondering about linking the text. I notice that when you link it this way if you change the kerning or tracking, the linked layer doesn't follow suit. I don't see a way to link these changes - any ideas?

Thanks for the great ideas!
