extruding a shape with text on it

Is it possible to extrude a shape with text on it and have a shadow on the background.
So far I can't do everything at once. I am making a project with 3d bumper stickers that fly in and then
roll and flip forward in 3d but I need the text in 2d on the front surface of the sticker to go with it.
After Effects CC won't extrude a PSD file. Can you enlighten me if this is possible.
I've been searching youtube for tutorials and not found anything like this.
Can I convert a Ai file into a shape and extrude?

Thanks

Illustrator can do the trick -- just don't import the illustrator document as a comp, and you'll be good. And don't use ray-tracing. Use the C4D Lite that comes with recent AE versions.

I give that a try. How do I enable the C4D Lite? I'm not sure what that is exactly. AE cc defaults to Classic 3d. Besides ray tracing 3d, there isn't another option that I see.
