I had thought there was a way to add materials to text in AE 6. I see material options under the text, but i do not see a place to actually add the material. I feel stupid...

Use the text layer as a track matte for the desired texture layer.

If you're trying to add an image layer as a texture for the face of a 3D object, you can't do that.

See these resources for what the material options properties are for:

Or if you want your Text to look 3D'ish with the Texture you Want use the " Shatter Effect " on the Texture Layer you want to use and change the follow settings :

Under Shape
-----------
Patter = Custom;
Custom Shatter Map = Your Text Layer;

Under Both Force (1 & 2)
----------------
Force = 0;
Radius = 0;
Strenght = 0;

and that pretty much it, you can play with the " Extrusion Path " for more 3D look there is some limitations to this so keep that on mind.
