Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving as an Illustrator 8 file, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and Cinema 4D Lite.
- This is going to be a very short, but very crucial movie.…What format do you need to save this logo in…to be read by CINEMA 4D Lite?…Namely, you need to save it…as a very old version of Illustrator, Illustrator 8.…Now that I have my client's logo,…and I've converted it to outlines,…and I've written down what color values…are used in that logo, I'm going to use Save As.…Just for cleanliness, I'm going to go ahead…and create a brand new folder inside here,…called flying logo working,…so I can keep all my files in there,…and I'm going to save this as an il8,…Illustrator 8 format.…
That's absolutely required, otherwise CINEMA 4D…is just going to ignore your logo file.…So, Format, Adobe Illustrator,…that's good, click Save,…and then, in this Version, you must change it…to something near the bottom of the list, Illustrator 8.…You'll get a warning dialog that this is a very old format.…Some things, such as certain paragraphs…and type may not convert.…That's okay, don't worry about any of that.…You've already created this file…
