Arched bottom, flat top text warp?

Recommended Posts

Hello all! I believe this to be a simple question, but I'm drawing a blank on the solution. I'm trying to warp a line of text so that the uppermost line maintains a flat top line, but with an arched bottom line...as you might see in Illustrator. I was going to import the paths from Illustrator, but there must be a way to do this with modifiers and warp tools, correct?

Here's a visual reference for the look I need.

I agree. FFD would do it...

You'd want to use more horizontal segments than me to get a more controllable curve, but the principal is there. The more vertical segments you have the more you can control the shape of the lower end of the letters.  Note: to some extent this relies on half-decent topology to deform nicely, so make sure your text splines are in Uniform or Subdivided mode, and that you have a dense quad grid on the caps.

 

There may be other deformers that can help too, but with those you will probably have to use falloffs to keep the top straight / unaffected.

Yes. Like Cerbera shows... or in a simplier way, just with the Bulge Deformer.

I'll blame tiredness for why I forgot to try that :) Much less hassle than FFD !
