Best way to get text like this (minus the dots and highlights) in Ai?

To apply the custom bevel, do one of the following:

To apply the bevel to an extruded 3D object, select the 3D object, and then double-click the 3D Extrude & Bevel effect in the Appearance panel. ...
To apply the custom bevel to 2D artwork, select the 2D object, and then choose Effect > 3D > Extrude & Bevel.

>>251346
Right, I've done the 3D beveling, but I'm not sure how to keep the text flat and beveled. It always shifts the text to a perspective angle.

Use the pathfinder tool and select the first option (merge) and simplify if you know how.

I imagine you guys are a good source for this.

I recently got a copy of the CorelDRAW 7 suite to generate graphics for a laser cutting machine.

I have some very light experience with parametric modeling software(solid-works, Pro-Engineer) but none with graphics software. I want to be able to draw shapes that fit together with box joints such as this pamphlet holder.

is there a function in CorelDRAW that makes this easier?
are there programs that can generate templates?

or will I just need to suck it up and...

Wouldn't a program like AutoCAD be better for a laser cutter? I've never used one myself, but if you're looking for accuracy and proper measurements I feel like a technical drawing program like AutoCAD would be better than a more artistic program like CorelDRAW, unless you're doing complicated engravings or something.

>>250795
Correct. Most laser cutters allow you to directly input AutoCAD files for easy of use.

>>250800
>>250795
>AutoCAD
I'm limited by what the tech department lets me do with the computer. and the machine is meant to do complicated engraving.

I want it to do structural member cutting for other projects.

and to prove to the stupid woman responsible for it and my actions regarding it that you can do more than just engrave novelty key-chains and coasters with it.

so in general what does separate the good and the bad minimalist works? Should I change the background colour, a detail in the text font, the text itself? I tried combining 2 or 3 fonts that looked bold and sharp ( kind of like the iron maiden band logo but more minimal).

Ok so before you say what you have to say, I looked it through in a bit and noticed:

> background colour should be bright to compliment the sharper edges

Will post a newer one with these mistakes outdone and then ask you what else to add/change. Also, I know minimalism isn't about adding less but...

Try framing the word in a solid-colored rectangle, and maybe add some shadows to give it a bit of depth!

Do things like 99designs and swiftly. People usually shit on programs like that but those people usually don't actually have careers in design. It's good practice with real projects and can make you a bit of dough while you build up a portfolio to get real gigs.

Serif fonts that stress the contrast between thick and thin lines are generally associated with fashion(just look at any fashion magazine) because it looks delicate and exclusive.

That fat faced sans serif font is pretty much the opposite and has not much personality in itself(I guess it was made during the Helvetica fad) Could also be Target package design.

Gap isn't high fashion, though - it's barely a step above buying clothes at Walmart.

I'd argue the new font is a much better representation of what they actually are, instead of what they want to be.

Can you make some money by selling templates online?

Making basic 3d objects like books, magazines, coffeecups, bottles etc. with soft lightning and a flat plane background is pretty easy and I could shit out a bunch of such templates every day.

You would need to do a good job with it though. There are so many decent free ones now you would be wasting your time.

Hi /gd/.

These kinds of templates used to view a design in an environment. Not only for business cards, let's say a 3D logo on a wall etc. I'm pretty sure these are plugins either for Illustrator or CorelDRAW, but I can't seem to find any. I usually make a 3D perspective of a BC etc in CorelDRAW, but that consumes too much time and they don't always look as good as.

What are these templates exactly and where do I find any to use with my software?

They're called mockups and they are not plugins. Photoshop is what you want for creating mockups or using mockup templates.
Most of the time they are actual studio quality photos of the products (business cards, t-shirts, etc.) like the one in your post, and a layer mask or similar used to apply the design to the object.
Of course it varies depending on the application and the design but there are lots of free ones that might be useful.
A google search of 'graphic design mockups' will help shed some light on the subject.

I bought an A4 Wacom Intous 3 way back in 2005, still have it and use it to this day...It's not in great condition, there are scratches on the drawing surface and the pen nibs are all worn down to almost nothing and the USB cable is a little sensitive but functionally it still works perfectly and I still use it to this day. Not bad for some 10 year old tech.

Hey /gd/ I'm thinking about making some Youtube videos of Photoshop tutorials (amongst other programs, AutoCAD, Revit, Lumion, Premier etc) I'm the only one in my group of friends that can use Photoshop and they always ask me for help with stuff, so I figure I can just teach them/other people with videos.

Just wondering what you think the best way to go about these tutorials would be. I was thinking about just going through the UI in the first few videos, starting the the tools pallet and then the drop down menus at the top and then the layers/colour/text pallets...

just started using blender and i've made this light saber but it has tons of fire flies in it and increasing sampling size seems to not get rid of many. I'm not trying to do a full render but just wonder if theres a way to get rid of them or reduce them significantly in the render view/test render thing.

thats not the color i originally chose for it btw just wanted to highlight some of the details.

This is more of a /3/ thing.
But I do 3d as well, so I'll help you.
Fireflies generally occur when there's not enough light information, or you're using an hdri (even both sometimes).
Increase the amount of samples (as you've done), and increase the size of your lights/ power.
It's going to end up a bit brighter than what you'd like out of the box, but you can just fix that using the levels tool in a photo editor.

Also look into clamping, and branched path tracing.

So I have this little animation that I'd like to do, but I'm not sure if it's even possible because of the way I want it.

So, if you look at the picture, those rectangles are actually an erased part of the white layer with a clipping mask, and the red galaxy picture is underneath it.

What I'd like to do is move the erased parts from off screen to on screen, but I want it to have a cool effect where it's actually just the erased part moving, so it's going to scroll (for lack of a better word) over the picture in the background and not...

Photoshop is mostly for GIF's
in after effects you can do that in a couple mins.
just try animating a mask. (use F9 on keyframes + graph editor)
>>
why dont you try masking the galaxy stuff on 3 actual rectangles and move them over a white background? it would work and look the same
>>
after effects is the best for this. look up how to animate a mask and you'll be on your way :^)

also idk how it'd turn out, but try adding a slight animation to the background image, like slowly increase the size of it or pan it slightly. i think it might look cool.
