Thanks for posting this up! I'm pretty new using GIMP and i'm starting to make some signatures and I really wanted to learn how to do this.

Isn't there a way to do this with the Xach Effect? (sorry about Bump if it matters)

You really can't do this from that tutorial... I don't know what else needs to be explained,

All you gotta do is copy and paste your text moving up little bits each time so that it fills in all of the space.

RE: 3D Text
I wish i had seen this before looking up the LONG way to do it Confused

hahaaa...anyway

another short way I saw on youtube was to make your text layer, DUPLICATE once, MOTION BLUR your duped tex tin the direction you want with a length of about 10-15, then DUPLICATE the BLURRED layer about 20x...then you make sure all that is visible is your BLURRED layers and MERGE ALL VISIBLE LAYERS....put your TEXT layer back on top, ALPHA TO SELECTION on that, FILL with black, then SHRINK SELECTION by about 2 pixels and ERASE everything selected, which creates a border around your top layer

HOPE THAT MAKES SENSE.lol 8)

Very easy with a replica tor. I do it all the time in Motion. But it does depend on how extensive and detailed you need it. There is one that was THE big thing for Final Cut legacy users. Did 3D text, make flat logos 3D, can't remember the name. It was pretty awesome though.

Can I send myself a copy of your tutorial? I see where it won't let me Ctrl C.

Appreciate your work for us newbies.

RE: 3D Text
A much faster technique if the text is less that 512 pixels is to use it as a brush (you can also use the "shift-click" combo to achieve perfectly straight edges).

Just a reminder that from Gimp 2.8.6 the clipboard size is increased to 1024 x 1024 pix
