Giant 3d text in Fringe

Of all the new shows that started this year, Fringe isn't my favourite... X-files fan that i am. and this show being a polar opposite to the x-files when it comes to paranoia and conspiracies.

However i do like watching the trippy "fringe science" cases that they deal with in each episode, and i love the Giant 3d text. I like the way its all camera tracked and has seemingly accurate lighting and reflections.. thumbs up to the guys behind it. Its eerie the way the First-person-view camera sometimes, walks or drives through it.

I really love the Giant 3d text! here's some examples of the good ones from the those i've seen so far(warning big images). note: all images are property of the creators of the show.








the show titles are nice too...

a 3d font? hmm... you'll have to use a normal non 3d font and make it 3d yourself.. both illustrator and coreldraw can do that these daysif your working with non video... for video use a 3d software like 3ds max or xsi..some cool fonts can be found at http://www.dafont.com/

also remember that for the kind of effect shown in the stills above, you have to do a lot of camera tracking, so that the angles of the text matches the surroundings in the video. Camera tracking is practically an art... and a very tedious and time consuming process. more on it- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Match_moving
