Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing the object hierarchy, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and Cinema 4D Lite.
- Now that I have my logo in CINEMA 4D Lite,…we need to do a little bit of housecleaning…to set up a nice hierarchy…to be able to work with it.…Now what's happened is that, when it got imported,…all its Paths were attached to a Null Object,…very similar to a Null in After Effects.…Nice little handle to move the whole things around.…If I click on the plus sign to the left of this Null Object,…you'll see all the Paths that make it up.…Unfortunately, you'll also see…that all my Path names in Illustrator…did not get translated into Path names…inside CINEMA 4D Lite.…
So you're gonna need to do…a little hunting and pecking, and some renaming,…to throw away what you don't need…and to properly name what you do need.…Let's start at the top…and see what we have here.…Path 13 seems to be one of my guides.…I certainly don't need those to extrude.…I'll just press Delete…and get rid of that Path.…The next one up is Path 14, another guide.…Don't need it. Press Delete.…Path 15 is that top guide.…Don't need it. Press Delete.…Path 1, okay. That's actually something useful.…
