Better get the LARGE bucket of popcorn. Order up a gallon-sized cup of Coke. This effect is rated R for Really Awesome.
Once again, the Bevel and Emboss effect displays its incredible versatility, with those chiseled edges creating the look of hard plastic letters.
Reducing the opacity makes them translucent. Some drop shadows colored to match the lettering help sell the look. And a little baseline shift up and down make things just messy enough. But my absolutely favorite thing about this effect is that the text is real live text that you can edit at any time.
Oops, sorry. Should’ve warned you about the spoilers.
