    For something simple look at Cinema4D. Easily takes eps input, and really good extrusion controls. Simple interface to learn, and good render engine.

    ... and actually - I'd suggest you do your 2D prep work in Illustrator, convert fonts to paths, and save as EPS to import into Cinema. Then you can do all of your extrusions on the native paths. Will make it much simpler than trying to lay everything out in Cinema natively.

    Photoshop has great 3D features now. Very easy to use and very effective, especially for text.

    If you want 3d text with a bit of embellish, then cinema4d or illustrator to C4D is fine. Believe it or not, for very complex geometric designs rhinoceros 5 is great. It can do the vector base because it has amazing editing capabilities, or you could do the entire piece in it. Love nurbs :)

    I've also used Softimage and Modo. Softimage is very robust. Modo is fickle, but casual users can do more.

    I agree, C4D do the job, if you want somenthing really advance (photo realistic materials like water, fire and crystal) you will need something way more powerful like 3d max and a specialized rendering engine like v ray. Even with Mental ray (included and default render engine in 3d max) you can achieve very realistic results. but, again if you want something more basic C4D is great and more easy to use with paths from PS or AI.

    Yep, I'm also gonna say Cinema4D here. I only discovered it's capabilities recently and it's really a great piece of software to use. If you can get your hands on it, there's a bunch of good training/tutorials online as well

    There's a plugin for After Effects called "Element 3-D" that creates really good 3D text, quick and easy. There are tons of presets to get you started, from there you can tweak them to your desired output.
