Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Extruding the hero object, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and CINEMA 4D Lite.
- Let's set about extruding our big Hero M object here,…and once we learn all the tricks there,…we can apply the same principles…to the other objects in this scene.…Now the first thing I want to show you is…how to temporarily render your scene…to see what's going on.…Right now, you're just getting a very flat,…basic, quick and dirty shading.…If you type Command R on Mac,…or Control R in Windows,…you get a higher quality render of your scene.…Now we don't have any lighting,…we don't have any bevels.…We don't have anything exciting going on,…but it gives you a better indication…of how some of the shading may be working,…particularly along the sides of these objects.…
I'm gonna select my Extrude Hero.…I've chosen the Extrude layer, not the MLN underneath.…I'll go down to my Attributes panel…and make sure the Object tab is selected.…There's a property here called Movement.…Movement is what direction you're extruding in…and how much you're extruding by.…You see the default is a very small extrusion…in the Z dimension.…
