Maybe post some stills of what you've got. How are you doing the transition? Which Morph targets?

I made the animation in two pieces the 2d slowly coming towards the camera and then the 2d is streched into a 3d object zooming at the camera but the fonts not the right one and i dont know where i can get it from

I think better to use a simple solid font otherwise you may end up with complications when extruding. There's some tips here on importing and working with fonts

Helvetica, Ariel, Swiss, tucson. Also theres allot of kerning on the titles (the characters are squished together) and it's bolder than yours, it may not be a true bold and most likely a custom font or a modified version of one of the above.

Coming along well, the background looks a bit washed out, I would make it darker and add AA, play around with lighting etc.

Here's a demo I did today... If this is what you're looking for, I could whip up a quick tutorial...

I think you use endomorph on an extrudsion, right?
Weel, you could use a higher luminosity value on your textures and some shaders (bloom). To match the example you could add some glow too (a higher AA it's a good idea too...).

I use bloom, motion blur, ful precision blur and 2 identical objects with 2 sets of surfaces, 1 for solid and other for the outlines. Now it's just refine camera and other animation parameters, and maybe some surface animation...

I'd probably approach this from a 2D perspective.

Hi Guys

I really appreciate your help, I have done some testing with your methods but they did not work for me (thanks anyway)

I am One step away from completing the project for my media SAT Assignment

I cannot figure out how to see the bottom and top of the credits any solutions ?

I have attached a picture of my model and a proffessionals model
Mine is the one on the left

Cheers David

Flip the back polys or make their surface double sided.

I got the DFX+ deal when Newtek offered it along with a previous ver. of Lightwave. Used it for a local band's music video, however I softened it quite a bit from the actual film credits. It begins reading "NOTMTV", (not mtv).
