Episode 088 – Wrap Text Around a Globe

by heathenx

In this episode I will demonstrate how to wrap text around a three-dimensional globe in Inkscape v.046.

I used a fairly new extension from Gerrit Karius (aka G33K) called Bezier Envelope. If you want to follow along or use the Bezier Envelope for whatever future purpose then be sure to download it here. Thanks Gerrit. 🙂

Update: Gerrit has released an updated Bezier Envelope extension for Inkscape version 0.48. Grab it here. We can now use more than just 4 nodes. Here’s a sample. Thank-you Don Waters for getting in touch with Gerrit and making this happen. 🙂

Episode 061 – Simple 3D Object

by Richard Querin

In this tutorial I create a semi-realistic 3D recycle bin using Inkscape 0.46. This screencast demonstrates how the use of very simple objects along with subtle gradients and blurs can achieve realistic looking objects.

I’ve been mulling over this one for quite a while thinking it was too simple and boring. But I thought, what the heck. It might be of interest to someone out there. 🙂

I’ve also been playing around with my new Flip Video camera and decided to try something for the 45 second intro at the beginning.

I hope you find this one useful.
