3-D Rotation and 3-D Formatting
Beveled edges give a shape a three-dimensional appearance without tilting or rotating
the object.
For more beveling choices, click 3-D Options at the bottom of the Bevel submenu. This
opens the Format Shape (or Format Picture) task pane with the 3-D Format controls dis-
played, as shown in Figure 9.43. You can also access this task pane by right-clicking the
object and choosing Format Shape (or Format Picture).
The Bottom Bevel setting has no apparent effect unless you apply a 3-D rotation to the
object because you can’t see the effect at zero rotation. As a result, we will only concern
ourselves with the width and height settings for a top bevel:
Width. Specifi es how far the effect extends into the object.
Height. Specifi es how dramatic the effect is vertically.
You won’t notice much height difference for a bevel unless you have applied a 3-D rotation
to the object, but the width setting is immediately apparent for all objects.
3-D Rotation and 3-D Formatting
The 3-D rotation effect makes a two-dimensional object look three-dimensional by applying
perspective to it. The 3-D rotation effect uses angle measurements for three dimensions: X,
Y, and Z:
X rotation. Rotation from side to side.
Y rotation. Rotation from top to bottom.
Z rotation. Pivoting around a center point.
X and Y rotation actually change the shape of the object on the slide to simulate perspec-
tive; Z rotation simply spins the object, just as you would with a rotation handle.
