Convert logo to splines

Recommended Posts

I need to convert a logo to a closed spline in c4d.  What is the quickest way?

 

Thanks

Select the boundary edges making up the outer shape of the logo and run an "Edge to spline" command. The command is found on the Mesh > Commands menu.

    I think 3Dkiwi assumed you had a model of the logo already when he gave his answer. If you just have a png then you would probably be best redrawing it in illustrator or similar and then import the resulting path for a perfect result. I think the only option in cinema ( may be more in R20+ ) would be to use the vectoriser which is a kind of auto trace in cinema which would create a spline for you to extrude or loft etc.

    Best to redraw it first as a vector.

    as Deck says, you need to draw the logo with splines either in C4D or in illustrator.
