Thanks Jason, good refresher and overview. Esp. as I tend to overcomplicate all the channels in the materials with fresnel gradients, etc. Also, nice smooth camera without getting into F-curves.

Would LOVE to see more of these C4D tuts here. And thanks as well for the camera rigs in the goodies on your site!

Cheers,
~Chris

Thanks Jason,

Here's a trick I've learned from taking Illustrator files to C4D. If you don't separate the elements in Illustrator and instead leave them overlapping, when you bring the version 8 Illustrator file into C4D, select the overlapping spline curves and choose: Function->Explode Segments. This will separate the overlapping curves from one another and keep them in place (no reference image or moving back required).

Have a good one and thanks again!

Romeo Meiercomon.....this video does not show the whole thing

I downloaded the same "Duff" Logo from the same page since it comes down as a Ai file its easy to do that but if i create my own logo in ilustrator then it does not work especially since the text used in illustrator does only become a box when i try to make a vector mask and if i try to use the magic wand tool that cannot even be used in illustrator someone should tell me how..... better if someone remakes this tutorial and uses a homemade loge with text involved of course in illustrator
Please get back to me and tell me how to make a vector mask out of text so that it is not a box and surounds the text

WOW!! That is very impressive, you made it look so easy. Damn, I signed up on this site ages ago (I think a year ago), but didn't know there were video tutorials on cinema 4d :(. I was searching for a 3d logo tutorial, and then 'TARAAAH'...found it on your website. Oh well, guess I'll live, learn, enjoy and then cry sometimes ;D.

Man, I can't wait to into the animation side of things. Look like, I have a new resource site to visit regularly now ;).

Thanks heaps
CHEERS :)

Thank You!!!
This was easier and better than Lynda.com's free tutorials on Cinema 4D.
This has made me less scared of Cinema 4D!

Decided to use a Sports Badge for my attempt as i followed along. Really happy with how it turned out. Excellent tutorial and easy to follow along with stunning results once coupled with other tutorials here.

Thanks for posting such a great tutorial. I have never used a 3D program before as they looked so complex. You made it really easy for me to achieve something that looks like it took forever to do! Thanks mate!

Great tuto! But my problem is that on my own logo, the Nurbs filled in the body and left the borders transparent. I wanted the body transparent and the borders filled in. Is there an inverse select??
