In a response to a question I was asked on Vimeo about how to spin objects on a single axis using dynamics, I go over a couple ways you can achieve this effect so the dynamics rotation looks realistic and can interact with real world physics and gravity. First, I’ll show you how to get a cube to spin on it’s edge and then show how to slow it down to a stop and topple over. Then I’ll demonstrate how you can get your logo or text have a cool, dramatic, and energetic spin reveal using dynamics on a logo made with Text Edge FX.

The answer is “Heck yeah!”, and here’s a tutorial on how you can do this in 1 easy step! So a special treat to all those who have purchased TEFX so far, I’ve made available for download 20 custom inner bevels that take advantage of this simple technique shown in this tutorial.
