Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Extruding the other objects, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and Cinema 4D Lite.
- I have my big hero element extruded in this scene.…Let's go ahead and work on these…other two smaller elements as well.…I'm gonna go ahead and press one, two and three…and pan around until I can see…the Metro a little bit more clearly.…Since that's the target of my affections next.…Let's zoom in a little more on it, here.…And then I'll select the Extrude Object…for the Metro word.…I made sure the Hierarchical is set fort,…so that all the characters render,…go to Caps, set the Start Cap to Fillet Cap,…and now I have a slight extrusion on it.…
You'll notice that it grew,…and therefore the holes in things like the R…started to close up.…Also the spacing in between the characters…closed up as well.…If I increased the size,…these characters start to grow together…and nasty things start happening.…So I'm going to enable Constrain,…and now I retain the original outer dimensions…of the logo.…I'm gonna increase Steps,…just to get some more resolution out of this,…to at least eight or ten or so,…and just for the sake of consistency,…
