Watch the Video
In this tutorial, I will show you how to create animated 3D text in Blender 2.49b. You can use this type of effect to create, for example, rolling credits in your video. Or, perhaps, you can do something like the Star Wars introduction..."A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away...".
The techniques are based on Paolo Ciccone's excellent Blender 3D Survival Guide, which you can find at CreativeCow. Specifically, you can find how Paolo creates animated 3D text in Parts 3 and 4. The URLs are at:
