Basically, the title says it all.

I am looking for a solid plug-in that does 3D text in AE.
I know that there is a couple out there, but I want to know from the experts, what the best ones are.

Thanks dudes.

I have had great success with Zaxwerks 3d Invigorator Pro. It has its quirks, but once you get used to it, life is good.

Another vote for Zaxwerks -- but it's not 64-bit ready for CS5 yet. Boris FX 3D Objects is CS5-ready.

I'm keeping my eyes peeled for Mettle's Shapeshifter; I love Freeform, and I'm looking forward to see what they come up with.

My vote is for Boris 3D extruded text. Less clunky than invigorator but then again, I haven't used invig in years.
