Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video About colors, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and CINEMA 4D Lite.
- Let's talk for a moment about colors,…and 3D space.…I notice that my type here is in black,…but the big M logo happens to be…in this interesting purple color.…So I'm going to select that big M,…and open up my color panel in Illustrator.…Quite often, logo files will be created for print.…And usually, print means a CMYK file.…Occasionally, it might mean a specific…Pantone color swatch, that has been picked…for that company's logo.…3D space, and video in general,…does not care about CMYK,…and does not know about Pantone color swatches.…
So you're going to be working in either an HSB sort…of space, or to be safe, RGB.…So what you need to do,…is change the color picker in Illustrator,…to RGB, and write down these color values…for any particular colored elements…in your client's logo.…Particularly in this case,…I'm going to write down that I have red equals 67,…green 43, and blue 115.…That will be my starting color in 3D.…However, part of what makes 3D space so cool,…is that you have an interplay of lights,…and highlights across the face of your models.…
