Introducing My3DFont 2.0

By | 3D & VFX, Tutorial | No Comments

The whole of the old version of My3DFont was rebuilt and re-imagined for a wider use and ability to generate unlimited text & kerning. This is the all-new My3DFont 2.0.

Design your own unique 3d font for company’s logos or Opening credits or for other uses. Once you have typeset each individual letter of your new 3D typeface, you can simply start typing the words you need by using My3DFont just like MoText object. And then you can easily fine-tune spacing and kerning and many other features.

My3DFont 2.0 Overview :

Kerning

The kerning is more easier to use. Users now benefit from an even faster and easier workflow using an intuitive interface.

Unlimited Text & Kerning

Yes. The maximum number of text and kerning that you can generate is unlimited.

Manage your font as you wish!

To increase workflow the entire Extras Options has been automated to the maximum extent to increase flows. Now you will not need to group your characters (letters, number and punctuation) in specific order.

Multi-Language Support

In contrast to the preceding version, which was limited to only Latin alphabet consisting of 26 letters (upper- and lower-case), number and punctuation. This version support for all characters of any language.

Online Article

I saw this article on theautomator.tv about the work by Dan Pierse on The Exorcist, an American anthology horror supernatural drama television series that debuted on Fox on 2016.
From the Article:
Because of the production needs of banging out dozens of cards for different cuts, a solution was needed to avoid having to typeset each individual letter in 3D.  We came across a plug-in for Cinema 4D called My3DFont Tool. I had to model each individual letter, number and punctuation and group them together in a specific order.  Once completed, the script referenced that group and it was possible to start typing just like MoText but with the 3D geometry….pretty badass!”

Ahmed Kamel offers a free download to his Neon Tube Alphabet which contains whole alphabet in light up neon tubes. It’s the neon tube font that we have used in the demo video above.

Watch Tutorial

Camera Mapping allows you to project a texture (in most cases a photograph) on some simple geometry to create a 3D object that can be used in more then one camera angle. Of course the angle is limited but small movements are possible, which is often sufficent. This technique is based on recreating the original camera postion, angle and optical settings. If you have precise information on this you can use it directly, but in many cases some adjustment by sight will suffice.

Here’s some examples of using images with basic geometry, from Video Copilot Blog.

C4D Title “Aircraft Theme” Breakdown

I create and animate this title in cinema 4d using MoText, then I made it editable. I use After Effects to composite image sequences rendered from C4D.

Compositing

Compositing is the combining of visual elements from separate sources into single images, often to create the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene. Live-action shooting for compositing is variously called “chroma key”, “blue screen”, “green screen” and other names. Today, most, though not all, compositing is achieved through digital image manipulation. Pre-digital compositing techniques, however, go back as far as the trick films of Georges Méliès in the late 19th century; and some are still in use. (wikipedia)

After Effects

Adobe After Effects is a motion graphics application that allows users to animate, alter, and composite media and add effects both in 2D and 3D environments.
