Hello one and all,

I am a new user of Cinema 4D Studio.
Anyway, I have a logo that was designed for me in Illustrator format. I'd like to import the logo into Cinema 4D and extrude it and add some textures as well.
My question is this: how do I create and prepare the textures from a jpg image of the logo so that it/they can be used in Cinema 4D? I have Adobe Photoshop CS6 and PhotoImpact X3 in my arsenal.

Start with "Flat Projection" of the texture in C4D and then use the texture tool to scale it to the geometry. Consider recreating the materials in C4D.
