Introduction to 3D Text
3D text can be a very important element to add to a Scene. Think of all the television advertisements that contain text and how it is animated. There are two ways of adding text to a Scene in Blender. One way is to use the built-in text generator and the other is to use an external program.
Text made in Blender can be easily edited in the Properties window. Text made in an external program like Elefont or one of the on-line 3D text generating programs may give you additional options and different fonts.
