Softpedia Editor's Review for Aurora 3D Text & Logo Maker
A professional 3D logo and banner maker
Written by Elena Opris on December 20th, 2012
As its name implies, Aurora 3D Text & Logo Maker is a piece of software that allows you to create and design 3D text, logos and buttons for your websites. Even less experienced users can learn how to fiddle with this tool.
The interface of the app is clean and intuitive. You can start off a project with a template or blank background. So, you can add text, rectangles, convex polygons, arcs, arrows, SVG shapes, text shapes, images and 3D models, just to name a few.
Aurora 3D Text & Logo Maker provides you with a wide range of customization options when it comes to styles (for text, shapes, frames, icons and light), color (e.g. texture, gradient), bevel (shape or text), design (e.g. text effect), animation (e.g. by letter) and light.
In addition, you can use the undo and redo functions, arrange objects in the layout, set up the render size, change the background and switch to a different language for the interface. Once the project is finished, you can export it to the Clipboard, an image or animation.
The graphic processing app needs a pretty high amount of system resources, has a good response time and includes user documentation. We have not come across any problems throughout our testing; Aurora 3D Text & Logo Maker did not freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs. First-time users can take a while to get familiarized with the program.
