emboss/bevel effect for text in maya
on May 30, 2011 at 10:36:48 pm

Hi, I'm trying to re-create a logo for my band that I originally did in photo shop. I've like the way it's turning out in maya, but I'm having a hard time re-creating a bevel/emboss effect for the text and logo. This is what the photo shop version looks like http://i623.photobucket.com/albums/tt318/jcurella/logo.jpg
And this is the version I'm working on in maya http://i623.photobucket.com/albums/tt318/jcurella/mayalogo.jpg

Notice how the text in the photo shop version comes out to a point. and the similar emboss effect on the logo. I'm not as concerned about the effect's on the log as I am the actual text. but it would be nice if I could do both. thanks,

Hey Joseph, I know what you are trying to do, if you want, send along the project file and I'd have to take a look at it to see how you can get the correct bevel. It may be something that's better fit to model in 3ds, but anyway, I would be happy to take a look see and let you know more details. stuniverse@earthlink.net OK? Stu.

sweet Stuart!!! Do I need to save the logo as an object before I send it to you?

Hey Joseph, a .MB or .MA file should do fine, and I'll let you know if I have any problems after that. Send it along!
