    Default 3D Text Effect

    As a one-off exercise I am hoping to take a few lines of plain text in a block and then 'tilt' the text as a block (or an image of the text) so that the top lines tilt away from the viewer and appear a bit like the text titles at the start of the Star Wars movie (but not moving like in the movie).

    I would be very grateful if anyone could point me towards a freeware or shareware app that would let me do this. (Using Google I have found an app called Boris that is a plug-in to an Adobe product called After Effects but it seems way to complicated for what I am trying to do).

    Many thanks

    Baz

    Thanks Speedy. Sure I have Word - but how do I do it? If you are thinking of using different size fonts, that won't really give me the effect I'm looking for.

    You go to tools/customise, tick wordart / OK.

    Then click on the A in the Wordart box that came up and then select whichever style.
