Can someone please tell me how to make a pattern nicely wrap around some text. I created a tile pattern and just used circles instead of the squares, but as you can see there are some weird lines. this is using cubic mapping, I've tried every kind of mapping and nothing looks right. Each leter is it's own extrude nurbes with a path. I've set the pather intermediate points to uniform but that didn't help.
Ideas?

Unfortunately extrudes don't map very well by default. In this case I'd use two texture tags: one for the caps and one for the extruded surface. Use flat mapping for the caps tex tag and UV mapping for the extrusion (adjust U and V scale and offset accordingly).

Example: 3924_textmap.c4d.zip
