    Using a Galaxy s3 & SOMEwhere, I know there's an app that allows you to make your own personal messages in this style like the 20th Century Fox logo. I saw someone do it for a friend's birthday last month. (see attachment)
    Problem is- they could not remember what it's called. [​IMG]
    Someone suggested two: mimatic and chisel. But I searched Google Play & didn't see either.
    Thanks for any help!

    I use the PicsArt app. Tons of great features that would allow you to create something like this.

    Thank you- I guess what I'm really looking for is an app that would provide a template of that design.

    Something similar to this? I did a quick one with Picsay.
    There's a ton more options but I was looking for a quick one with similar coloring

    I went all caps on purpose for effect. Here's upper and lower without the 3d effect as well.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm not convinced it was done on a phone.

    -mountainbm: No- not that. What I'm looking for is the 20th Century Fox "font" as it looks in the picture I put up.

    -Miller'- I'm definitely starting to think the same. Must be a program/generator for a computer. But damn, I've searched for those too & came up with the same how-to videos you saw.

    I've used Blender in the past. It's not all that difficult to use. But I really don't feel there is an app that is capable of that.

    Yeah, I've been looking over Blender's website the last few minutes & its looking like that's my only option.

    I'm thinking a couple of things though- I saw the picture I posted on Facebook under a friend's profile for her bday & thought it was super cool. I asked the guy directly how he did it. No reply. Asked my friend (Yolanda) & she said she'd ask him for me. Turns out his english is very limited, he can't remember where he "got" it & that it was a phone app.
    I'm thinking he just flat out lied. The picture I saved & posted here sorta looks like a capture from a video. (note the black borders) So I'm guessing he must've toiled & did it on his computer.

    I put about 10 seconds into what I posted. Above is a link to the free version if you want to try it out because there is so much more that could be done given more time and effort. Might work, might not but the link is to the free version so it might be worth a shot.

    I think we are starting to skate on a thin line here as far as copyright and what not. (Doing signs and banners for years has taught me this big companies do not play nice with things of this nature) There are sites out there that offer the same type of thing. They are web based so perhaps he did it from his phone via one of those sites.

    Yeah, that's the impression I've been getting looking at some of the tutorial sites that no longer offer the logo option. I think the companies shut em down. It's also possible he had the software already installed in his computer & didn't do it online. I'm not a tech guru by any means. I only fool around with basic Paint. net software, but I wonder how he'd do it from his phone, as you said. The capture I posted here points to a video creation to my eyes. (also note the slight blurriness)

    There are sites out there that offer the same type of thing. They are web based so perhaps he did it from his phone via one of those sites.
    Would creating something so detailed be doable on a phone? (again, I'm no pro)

    I did a Google search and found quite a few "20th Century Fox Font" makers but none were apps and I'm not sure about the legitimacy of posting those links since they might fall under copyright laws. I was actually looking for an answer to what style it is but "download" was an option I clicked as well.
