Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video eyedesyn's Text Edge Pro, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and Cinema 4D Lite.
- One of limitations of using Cinema 4D Lite…to extrude flying logos…is that you have a limited number of Bevel styles.…If you remember, if I select my Extrusion Object,…and go to Caps,…I basically had the flat Linear,…Convex,…and Concave,…bent out and bent in,…and a few sort of chiseled looks,…something that's slightly inset,…something that's more deeply inset,…and a couple very rectangular set patterns on the faces.…
Well there's a very popular plugin…for Cinema 4D and Cinema 4D Lite…called Text Edge Pro,…from a company called eyedesyn,…D-E-S-Y-N.…And you'll see you can get…quite a few different looks using Text Edge Pro.…A lot of work's been done…with texturing as well on these objects,…as well as a nifty modeling, but you get the idea,…there's a lot of possibilities here.…So I wanted to give you just a really quick demo…of how you would use Text Edge Pro…so you can get a feel for whether or not…you'd like to get it as well.…
I'm gonna switch back to my default camera…so I don't mess up my animation.…I'm gonna temporarily turn off my Extruded Obejcts,…
