3D Text with perspective

Trying to create text with perspective 3D look. I can create a 3D look with the effect Extrude and Bevel but I can't get them to go to a single point. Something along these lines http://www.shinybinary.com/images/art/halifax.jpg

You can do it with live text or outlined text.
Select your object(s) and go to Effect/3D/Extrude & Bevel.
Set the rotations to 0,0,0.
Crank the perspective up real high, and click preview.

Note: I had to revert to CS2, and there seems to be some kind of quirk where all of the perspective components don't display until one or two of the rotation axis settings are greater than zero.

If you are trying to create a perspective that actually goes all of the way back to the focal point, I think you would actually need to draw it.

Or you could try blending (Object/Blend) your full size text with text that has been reduced to near-zero. Set the blend to Specified Steps: 200 or something.

Just a few ideas

Thanks for the help. Both worked fairly well but they kind of came out pretty ugly. Going to have to tweak them a lot but thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I was close but would have missed it otherwise.

The limit on perspective, in 3D Extrude & Bevel is 2000 points.

To get your extruded type to go to a single point, you will need to expand the appearance, lasso select the bottom half of your extrusion, then scale smaller.
