wrapping .ai pattern around object
on Oct 28, 2015 at 1:23:41 pm

hi all,

first post on here - so be gentle with me!!

what i am trying to do is as follows - i have an illustrator doc of a spiderweb pattern/image - i want to add it to an existing .c4d file, and rather than it be a flat material i want the lines to create a 3d pattern that wraps around the object...

i am not even sure of the terminology to search on google - but the shapes i want to apply the .ai contents to can be either an extrude nerbs object or a motet object...

not sure if that isn't too vague - but basically the main is to wrap the spiderweb around the object and give it a 3d (bump map?) effect...

any starting point will be a help - as i don't really know what the best way of doing would be :-/

thanks in advance

not clear but I think you want:
- the spiderweb wrapped around something - if so, what? the complexity of the object makes a difference
- the spiderweb isn't a flat extrude but has 'round threads'

yes, or something different?
