METALLICON 3D Cinematic Text Effect

This Photoshop effect gives your text a cool 3D cinematic look, suitable for movie titles or video games. It has a medieval, dark, dramatic feel to it, giving your text metal texture and surface effects, as well as carved, 3D look in a single click. It’s ideal for reproducing the look from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings or other fantasy or medieval movies or movies about history.

You can choose between 5 3D presets, ranging from matt, rusty look, imitating raw unpolished metal or rock / stone material to fully glossy and shiny metallic appearance.

You can also easily choose between gold, copper and silver colors, as well as 7 different dark, grunge custom background presets. Just turn on and off the corresponding layers and folders.

Moreover, the help file comes with recommended fonts and links where to download them for free. Those fonts are used in the previews so make sure you download them first before editing the Photoshop (PSD) file.

The file is using smart objects. You can add multiple lines of text, change fonts and font sizes, add lines and other graphics and the effect will automatically apply to all the elements that are inside the smart object. In one single click!

The mockup works with bevel and emboss effect (layer style). You will get 1 PSD file (CS6 and higher).

General instructions:

  1. Open the exercise in your browser and read the task and the content on the left side of the screen. 
  2. You will be editing the content on the right side of the screen.
  3. In order to do that, right click on the exercise page that you opened and go to ‘Inspect’.
  4. Go to ‘Sources’ in the top bar and if you cannot see an empty CSS sheet where you can type the code, press Ctrl + P and start typing ‘styl’ in the search bar. Then press enter to open the CSS sheet.
  5. Follow the notes on the left and start typing your CSS code to see the changes online!
  6. Important! Do not refresh the page while you are editing the code, as these changes are in preview mode only and you can see them immediately, as soon as you write a line of functioning code.
  7. Use the custom classes in the notes on the left side of the screen, as well as ‘Elements’ on the top bar of the ‘Inspect’ to target and style the classes and elements. For example, you can enable the small icon on the top left of the ‘Inspect’ window (‘Select an element in the page to inspect it’) to find the default class name of the element you want to edit, while you are in the ‘Elements’ tab.


  1. If the code is not showing any changes, try adding the !important tag at the end of the line before closing it (before the “;” symbol) and see if it works then.
  2. Don’t forget there are usually more ways to achieve the same result. Be creative!
  3. If you get stuck, write your email address in the form on the left side of the screen and you will get the solution (CSS code) in your email.
