Applying 3-D effects
There are two categories in the Effects category of the Format Shape task pane that apply
and control three-dimensional attributes of a selected object: 3-D Format and 3-D Rotation.
Click the 3-D Format category to apply three-dimensional effects to the selected shape. If
you apply one of the Bevel presets, several formats are applied to the selected object: color
and amount of depth and contour, material, and lighting type. In Figure 10-41, we created
a shape and applied the Convex preset from the Top Bevel palette.
The controls used most often in the 3-D Format and 3-D Rotation categories in the
Format Shape task pane are available directly on the ribbon. On the Format tab under
Drawing Tools, which appears when you select a graphic object, click the Shape Effects
button, and then click commands on the Bevel menu and the 3-D Rotation menu.
