How To Create 3D Effects Using Corel 10

CorelDRAW’s tenth edition software, the CorelDraw 10, is an upgraded combination of CorelDRAW and Corel Photo-Paint with new features and a unified interface. It has added features from Corel R.A.V.E., a vector based animation suite that introduced the popular Micromedia Flash animations and movie format best suited for web content. It also offers more fonts, clip arts, option palettes, filters, toolbars, and a graphics powerhouse to help you create print and web graphics design. All tools used in this software are those tools you see in Photo-paint or R.A.V.E.

CorelDRAW 10 allows user to import and export formats because it has a customizable interface. It offers controls for photo manipulation such as blemish removal, color corrections and red-eye reduction you can use in photo retouching. It provides additional controls even for complicated tasks such as mesh-based fills or extruding a three-dimensional object from a two-dimensional object.

If you want to make 3D image follow these steps. First, draw the image using the basic shapes and elements. Turn off strokes. Select an object, a part or component of the image, and fill it with color. Click copy and open a new page in Corel Photo-Paint. A window will open and will ask some parameters. The color mode is set for 24-Bit RGB, Background is enabled and the page will be larger than the object. Click paste, then press CTRL+A and select “Center of page” to bring the object to the center of the page.

Use Paint Bucket for your choices of color. Add noise to give texture to the object and to hide imperfections, especially during printing process. Select EyeCandy 4000/Chrome or Bevel Boss filter on “Effects” to add border around the object. Click Setting and select Chrome Border. Select the effect of your choice. If you’re done with the object, save it in Photo Paint’s native file format. Import the image from CorelDRAW. Repeat these procedures until all components are arranged. If you want to edit the image you don’t have to go back to Photo Paint, Corel 10 offers tools for image editing. If you want to put a shadow effect on the image you can use the Interactive Shadow. Click “Convert to Bitmap” to combine all the objects.

Corel 10 is more reliable because of its combined features. It eliminates the problems users encounter with the other software and lets you create a better slide, web page and other graphics. It’s a CorelDRAW, Corel Photo-Paint and Corel R.A.V.E. rolled into one.
