Making a layer map fit a polygon vector shape
on Jan 16, 2008 at 6:01:47 pm

Sorry for the wierd title... I am trying to make a logo in 3D Invigorator, and I traced the outline of the logo thinking that i could just set the logo as the layer map for the face and back, and create the edges with materials and everything.

Creating the vectors was no problem, but when I set the image as a layer map (since the logo itself is a polygon) it fits the image inside of it by the corners and doesnt match up to where it should be...

here are some images to help you see what I am talking about.

This is the logo in photoshop when I extracted it from its background:

This is the what it looks like after I apply it as a layer map in AE:

If anyone can help I will be immensely grateful... I'm pulling my hair out trying the figure this out.

Yeah, I tried that, and it didnt' work, but I realized that i was using just the IMAGE as the layer map...

I tried precomping the .psd layer and applying that as the layer map and it actually worked...

But thanks for the Reply!
