BorisFX Extruded Text Tutorial – A Series of Unfortunate Events Style

Today we return to HitFilm’s Extruded Text effect to create a rather terrible title sequence.

If you do not wish to view a tutorial which contains a brief reference to pirates, a CGI object performing unrealistic acrobatics, and an overwhelming use of shadows, please find another video to watch.

Within the enclosed tutorial you will learn:

  • How to add textures and color to Extruded Text
  • Faking depth with bump files and Parallax
  • Adding movement using the built-in Curl
  • Utilizing Drop Shadows to solidify 3D text

The project file for the effect is also available for free on the Preset Marketplace. Enjoy!
