To get text as an .eps file from Adobe Illustrator to Design 3D SE, follow these steps:
- Start with a web template in Illustrator - this is recommended, but not required.
- Convert your text to outline (Type > Create Outlines)
- Export from Illustrator as EPS 8
- Import into Design 3D SE
- Once in Design 3D, you can use the Extude tool to give it depth. You can then add a texture, lighting, backgrounds etc. before your final render.
