    can anyone point me to a good tutorial for 3d vector words like this:

    so far the closest thing I can get is either using a 100%opacity drop shadow with some placement tweaks and drawing in the shaders by hand or making the letters in sketchup. both end up looking bad and take a ton of time

    so now I want to know a real way to do these [actually, I know it will take time no matter what, but at least this way it wont be wasted time]

    Photoshop = Raster Graphics

    Illustrator = Vector Graphics

    To do whats in that image would take a LONGGGG arse time and I think Illustrator would be used for that.

    oh. now that makes much more sense to me...

    of course, this happens to be a very complicated example, but now that you mention it this does look like illustrator work (never even thought about that!)
