Extruding Logo
« on: January 15, 2009, 10:24:32 pm »

Good day everyone.

I have a Logo in Corel Draw and I want to import it to Anim8or so I can Extrude it and make a 3D rotation animation (Like the one in the cover of this site).

So far, in the manual I havenīt found anything.

The Logo includes only letters but with some Style (I donīt know the font)
Using Paths would take some time, that is why I am looking for more options.

Thanks.

Try to find out which font you used and use the text tool in anim8or to recreate the logo. Typ the letters go build>extrude and you will have 3d text. After that you can tweak it a bit till you like it.

Neiraoīs solution is good but I still have some problems.  :-\

When I export my model in Corel Draw to Wings 3D It loses quality (Like if it only exported the points but not the "curve vectors"). Iīll try playing with the parameters in the Trace Bitmap but I would like to know if there is another thing I should do.

Thank you for all your help.


EDIT:
I finally made it. I just used 0 in Smoothing to add more points. The model looks very good in Anim8or.
Thank you.


My problem is solved so we can close this topic.
