This is a video tutorial on taking vector art and importing it into Cinema 4D to create a 3D object that can be animated, textured, and manipulated in 3D space. In this tutorial, written by David from filmmakingcentral.com he shows you exactly how to do this. David was nice enough to allow us to repost this on our blog. He is using artwork from the free Vector Sample Pack from our Arsenal. I was cleaning out some of my files the other day and came across a folder full of stuff I grabbed at SIGGRAPH this year. I came across this great looking postcard from the gang at GoMedia. Their Ã¢â‚¬Å“ArsenalÃ¢â‚¬Â royalty free vector art is amazing. I got inspired and thought Ã¢â‚¬Å“letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s make some cool 3D works with it!Ã¢â‚¬Â So here we go. The following tutorial has 17 steps but they go fast once you understand what to do. I did this in Illustrator CS3, Photoshop CS3, and Maxon Cinema 4D. You can visit adobe.com and maxon.net for demos to follow along if you like. I used one of Go MediaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Arsenal freebie downloads for the vector art. Step 4 Feel free to scale the graphic or not. Since its vector you can enlarge it later without any consequences. Step 17 This file can be animated, you can add materials, lights, background, floors etc. Creativity has no bounds. Thanks David for writing the tutorial and doing the video demonstration.
