Creating CINEMA 4D text or logos in Illustrator

If I want more precision with my text, I always use Adobe Illustrator. It gives you much more typographic control that Cinema 4D does. So, I'm in Illustrator and I'm going to go to File > New to create a completely new Illustrator document. Generally, I choose the Video and Film presets here. And in this case I'm going to choose HDV/HDTV/720, and that's going to create a frame size of 1280 by 720. I'm going to make sure its a landscape of course it will be if use one of the pre-sets, but if you are creating it own custom size, make sure that you choose the correct orientation.
