Creating the Text

Next, create the text '' with a font size of 20 in the top viewport.

Text is also a shape. Although we can make it 3D at any time (in a minute, in fact) it's still in essence a 2D shape. You'll find it three below the circle tool in the SHAPE toolbar. (ref shape toolbar image above).

Once selected, the text options menu will appear

Select a suitable font (arial is bog standard boring, but will do fine for the purposes of this example), and enter '20' for the text size.

In the large white box underneath, you will see the words 'Maxtext'. Change this to '' or your name, or perhaps some sort of stupid phrase or two if you're so inclined, just keep it short for the exercise.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
