- [EJ] Welcome to Cinema 4D weekly … where I'm going to be sharing tips … and tricks to help inspire you … and push your 3D animations to the next level in Cinema 4D. … Today I'm going to show you a quick and easy way … to create pillow text using … the often overlooked C4D cloth tag. … So here I just have a extruded text spline here. … And basically what I want to do … is just remove the movement all together. … So we're just going to make this a flat panel. … Now if I go into the display gouraud shading lines … what we need is more subdivisions here … so we can get some really nice cloth deformations. … So what I'm going to do to actually create more subdivisions … is go to my caps tab, go to the type … and change this to quadrangle and turn on regular grid. … And you can see we have all these added subdivisions. … Let's bring down the width to three centimeters … and then let's go to our actual text spline … and change the intermediate points to subdivided. … And then we'll also match this maximum length …
