Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing the logo into C4D, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and CINEMA 4D Lite.
- It's time to bring my logo outlines…into my CINEMA 4D world.…An important panel in CINEMA 4D…is what's called the Object Manager,…which is up here in the upper right.…It's kind of like a combination…of the Project Panel and Timeline Panel in After Effects.…It shows you what assets you have in your project,…and how they are stacked together or interconnected.…Therefore, to bring an object into this project,…I'm not gonna use my main File command…over here on the left,…but instead, I'm gonna use the local File menu…inside the Object Manager.…
I'll click on that…and choose Merge Objects.…That basically means,…merge something new into my existing project.…I'll select Merge.…I'll navigate to my flying logo working folder…that I created earlier,…and select that MetroLogic Illustrator 8 outline file…that I created earlier.…I'll click Open,…and then I'll get a somewhat mysterious dialog…called the Adobe Illustrator Import dialog.…It has a number here called Scale.…That's basically asking you,…"How do you want to translate…
