I’m just evaluating the engine and so far I’m quite impressed how simple something is to achieve. But I’m kind of got stuck on one issue regarding simple 3D text creation. In Unity or Unreal is it very simple to create just a simple text in 3D, but I’m missing this option in Playcanvas.
I’m aware about the example of 2D Text rendered in 3D using billboards and canvas, but I’m looking just for simple 3D text primitive. Is it not possible with the engine?
I haven’t seen 3D text in modern apps often. This is something special and usually very custom from case to case.
There are many different ways to do it, with different visual outcomes. So it would be hard to meet majority of needs with still flexible way to allow good level of control.
If you need simple solution, then pre-making letters in modeling tool, and then making simple script to put one after the other.
