The above video demonstrates how intuitive and powerful Art Text 4 is as it comes equipped with a wide selection of text styles, surface materials, and effects.
Let’s take a look at all the essential tools and features this graphic design software for Mac has to offer for creating lettering and typography graphics, text mockups, and artistic text effects.
Spray Fill Tool
The Spray Fill tool allows achieving the effect of text being laid out with such objects as coffee beans, color balls, leaves, LEGO pieces, clouds, and many more.
Art Text 4 comes with over 440 fill objects to choose from, or you can import PNG, PDF, or JPEG images and use your own photo objects.
Font Distortion Effects
With the help of Distortion Effects, you can heavily alter and edit font shaps beyond the standard typeface options.
With just a few settings, you can very easily change an edged font into one with rounded corners, wear out text sides, create random holes in the body, partially dim text, and more.
The above image is an example of a standard typeface font converted into photorealistic honey laid out as text with the help of distortion effects.
Currently, there are 8 font distortion effects – Displacement, Side Displacement, Roundness, Brush, Outer Distress, Erosion, Mask, and Blur.
Art Text graphic design software for Mac offers 2D materials for visual effects, such as bumping or embossing.
You may also apply a glass, plastic, or gold finish, make the surface glossy, matte, bright, or faded, or give your graphic a fascinating watercolor, oil paint, or pencil drawing look.
The most demanding users will find the material editor handy for creating custom Shading Materials.
3D Text With Reflection Mask
The graphic design software for Mac implements a 3D modeling engine that helps to convert any text, symbol, or pictogram to 3D.
Its 3D renderer together with tons of customizable 3D materials ensures super realistic results every time.
The Reflection Mask option defines reflective and non-reflective areas to maximize the authenticity for rusty, decayed, or scratched surfaces.
The Bump Map option improves Shading Materials by adding bumps and wrinkles to convex and embossed text effects.
