For this example Rick is using AE's comp camera and a point light to view the extrusion layer. He has added a different color to the extruded edges and also added the background color to the back of the extrusion. A 3D duplicate of the text layer used as a custom shape is set to cast shadows only and the material options of Shatter have been adjusted.
