    Does anyone know how to create 3d text in 3d Invig Pro and animate it like a water ripple?

    Hi Jay.

    There is no “water ripple” material type in the Invigorator, but you may create a
    ripple texture and apply it to your objects. By creatively using diffuse maps, bump
    maps, and specular maps, you can create some convincing results.

    Good luck.

    Hi Jay,

    Matt offered some good ideas about creating water-type materials.

    If you’re looking to create a ripple effect in the actual 3d objects, use layer cycling. You can distort your objects over a series of Illustrator layers. If you need help with that, let us know.
