I brought an illustrator file into Zaxwerks Invigorator to give a 3d logo some extra bevels/faces etc so it would be easier to add multiple textures in C4D. I tried exporting as a .c4d AND .obj file but when I bring those into C4D, i see nothing. The object is in my OBJECTS window and the accompanying textures from Invigorator are imported and i see an axis for the object in my display but the objects just are simply not there. Do I have to do something differently when I import? Do I have to convert the object once it's brought in? I'd prefer not to have to add bevels/faces in C4D because I don't think they would come out as nice. Thanks for the help.

Do you see any points at all? Select your object and press the letter "H" to see every object in you scene. If you can send the file so we can see it.

thanks for the quick reply but I exported it as a .dxf file (which was the only possibility listed in BOTH the c4d preferences and the invig options) so the problem is solved. but i appreciate the fast response.
