Xara3D can work with any truetype font and modify the high number of features related to the text: alignment, spacing, tracking, kerning, etc.
Once you have created the 3D text, you can apply some effects and create dynamic images featuring the text floating, rotating or being typed. A good idea for web buttons or intro.
Xara3D can be a good choice both for novice and advanced users. It's easy to use, but once you get used to it you can explore more functions to create more complex images.
Finally, Xara3D allows you to import 2D images and convert them.
The trial version can be used for 15 days.
