Chrome Text Effect using Inkscape SVG filters [video tutorial]

As a follow-on from yesterday’s tutorial, the chrome effect in today’s tutorial is another text effect that utilizes Inkscape SVG filters. We have previously featured a tutorial to created a chrome text effect, but that was achieved using just gradients and blur.

The chrome effect in this tutorial uses a slightly tweaked version of the preset Chrome filter to achieve a more realistic chrome effect than if just gradients and blur was used. For those who want to skip to just the chrome effect, skip to the 19m:35s point in the video.
