    Help. When I open the psd in illustrator, I don’t get the dialog box to convert the layers. I could not find any way online to fix this.

    I am stuck on setep 11. I tried maybe 100 times. I did the other steps perfectly but 11 is just not happening.

    I am about to go crazy. Just please maybe you can add a video of that step ( I have CS6 by the way )

    And how do you an idea: do it all at once, in accordance with what is PDS.
    I downloaded the original file, and quickly realize that the values ​​in the figures for each step – complete nonsense! The author is not a good person! Sometimes it is necessary to use a brain!

    I am stuck on step 7 and 8. I have done this tutorial multiple times and have followed the instructions down to the last detail, but my letter never turns out like step 8 at all! It has this weird design in the copied letter insead. Please help!

      Download the PSD (at the top of the tutorial) and compare your file with the PSD. Try copying and pasting the layer style to your document (right-click on the layer style then click copy layer style). If it fixes it, it’s probably something to do with your layer style.

    Insulting someone like that will not get you want you want.

    Hi there! I love the tutorial! I just have one problem … when I move the text over to Photoshop, it becomes transparent on the sides, and then does not bevel correctly. Any suggestions? Thank you so much!

      I had the same problem with my letters. Some of them had chunks of the bevel missing and they all had these transparent lines running across on the extrusions. I’m thinking it’s the font I’m using, will have to try it again with the correct font when I get home.

    I’m stuck with step 12 … It won’t make the nice color over it. And I’ve tried it a couple of times, but for the rest this is amazing!

    1. killy ngantu says:

      it seem there was a step missing, lets call it as step 12a

      12a: after done step 12, then make 0 fill for the black (or whatever color you choosed) layer that you create before. try it.

      note:for get same result re-adjust the value on all inside blending option for the layers, because the font size is mattter. but all ok for the angel shade, etc.
