Deforming Text to Spline Shape in cinema 4d
This is a simple exercise but a very crucial one. Often, in 3D modelling, the thingsappearing pretty simple defy solution and make you feel like banging your headagainst the wall!It happened with me when I was trying to design a camera. Final part was to putthe text on the front of lens barrel, which is round in shape. Problem was how tomake the text round. It had me struggling for quite sometime until I found it in asimple command called Spline wrap, nested in MoGraph menu. I felt likesharing it with the readers because they too could be struggling with such athing.In inorganic modelling, deforming text is very important because often you haveto paste the text on different and unusual shapes.MoGraph module is necessary to follow this tutorial.This is the original model I wanted to design.And this is my attempt that I am still trying to refine.
