Making a 2d NHL Logo into a 3d Model
on May 4, 2013 at 2:24:43 am

Hey so i'm really new to Cinema 4D. And currently I am trying to make a 3D model of This Image and I'm really not sure what to do. The only thing I could find online was to trace the outside of the logo in photoshop and make it an .ai file and then import it into cinema4D. But now how do I add the actually logo into the outline of the 3d model. This is what my Cinema workplace looks like.

Thanks for any help!

import the svg file here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Calgary_Flames_Logo.svg in to Illustrator - export to an ai file and use those splines.

depends on what you want for the look - you can just put the image in a texture (color channel) and apply that with Flat mapping - for that you only need the outside spline
or you can use all the splines and do different extrudes for each color - then you don't need the image at all
