I recently tried out Aurora 3D Text & Logo Maker and I must say I was impressed. The software is easy to use and has a great selection of templates to choose from. You can customize your text and logos with various text effects, shapes, images, 3D models and animations. The texture and gradient parameters are also adjustable, and you can even change the background and render size. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this software and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to create 3D text and logos.
For most inexperienced users, creating anything related to tridimensional shapes and text may seem like a task beyond their capabilities; nevertheless, Aurora 3D Text and Logo Maker can actually make it feel relatively simple.
The application´s user interface may certainly look a bit complicated a first. Yet, it necessarily has to be so: dealing with 3D shapes will always require a lot of buttons and panels. As it comes with multiple pre-built templates, you can simply choose one and start experimenting with it. Then, when you have already gotten the idea of what it is like to work with the program, you will probably be able to create your own projects from scratch.
Not only templates are available, but a wide array of objects and symbols as well; and in case the available symbols are not enough, it is good to know that you can import SVG symbols from such popular (and sophisticated) graphics software as Photoshop and Illustrator. Moreover, the program features various animation effects, including lighting. The number of available textures may seem insufficient for demanding users; yet they are enough for most audiences.
This tool supports various formats, so it is possible to exchange your projects with other similar applications like Maya, 3DS Max and Cinema 4d. In addition, it allows saving in most common image formats, as well as some video formats, as GIF and SWF.
To sum up, Aurora 3D Text and Logo Maker has the advantage of simplifying a logically difficult task, but it does so at the expense of sophistication. In spite of that, it can produce decent results.
