Hi! Ive managed to produce a cube with luminance and using global illumination. Im really happy with the result as the edges are darkened and the centre of each side is lit, liek a lightbox. Im trying to produce the same effect for some type imported from illustrator but the material is not mapping correctly. Ive tried to play with the projection in the material tag but no luck. Can someone help? Images attached

for future info you just have to copy and paste the links from you Cow upload into the post. The gradient works nicely on a cube but it want's to be a square I don't think you could get it to map to the face of the A. Maybe if we had the file to test with but I can't think of anything of the top of my head other than to do it as an image or possibly with Proximal

One thing you could do would be to use the vertex map shader. This tutorial by Ben Watts should give you everything you need to know and more:
