Adding 3-D Effects to a Shape
Adding 3-D Effects to a Shape
You can add the illusion of depth to your worksheets by adding a 3-D effect to a shape.
Create a 3-D effect by using one of the preset 3-D styles, or use the 3-D format tools
to customize your own 3-D style. The settings you can control with the customization
tools include the bevel (a 3-D top or bottom edge effect), the shape depth (distance of
shape from its surface), the contour (raised border), the surface material and lighting. You
can apply interesting surfaces—matte, plastic, metal, wire frame, soft or dark edges, flat,
translucent, and clear—to a 3-D shape. In addition, you can change the type of light-
ing—neutral, warm, cool, flat, glow, and bright room—applied to a 3-D shape. Each light-
ing type defines one or more lights that illuminate a 3-D scene, not just for the shape. Each
light contains a position, intensity, and color.
