Coming up with new ways of making lower thirds can be challenging. Using a cloth simulation is a fresh, different approach that I don’t see often. In this tutorial I show how to create a nice flowing banner, complete of matching texture, in Blender, the amazing and free 3D modeling and animation software. This is inspired by the lower third technique used in Bravo’s “The Rachel Zoe Project” and it’s a a gigantic tutorial, running at a total of 54 minutes! I just had too much fun in doing it.
Next to the tutorial thumbnail there is a link to the Blender project file.
