Cinema 4D Tutorial – Stylish 3D Wooden Text Structure

In this viewer requested tutorial we look at building some really cool looking 3D wooden text. We look at how you can use multiple textures on a single extrude nurbs enabling you to texture the cap differently to the main extrude.

I love the simplicity of this one, yet it makes for a very striking final image. Also there seems to be a horse in this tutorial…..

You can see the original image here:

and the font that I used is here:

      Incorrect / incomplete Nooairsatitn of Affidavits is NOT just an error. The Patent Act has a formal system and a set of rules for admission of an Affidavit from a foreign Declarant. If the Party using the Affidavit does not comply with the system laid down in the Act, then such Affidavits are liable to rejected in entirety. An Affidavit which does not follow the law in the Act is the same as [for e.g.] an incomplete Form 1 — You are not complying with the minimum requirements and hence your papers are liable to be rejected.

    I find difficulties in following you tut Stylish 3D wooden Text which I would like to explain. However, I am a just born creator in Cinema, so with no skills at all. That means my explanation would be dramatically long.
    Some points:
    I am using type Garamond. After the first steps it seems as I have double letters, as I am drunk 🙂
    The sides of the letters seems to have a trapezim form.
    When I use Details > Gouraud Shading lines than the letters are completely filles with lins.
    and much more….
    two questions for you:
    like Photoshop cs6 and cc you can start up PS absolutly clean by pressing Shift, Control and Alt.(as you installes PS for the very first time)
    Does something like that excist for Cinems d4?

    Can I sent you a file to look at? To see what I have done so far?

    I would certainly appreciate your support.

    Cool tutorial. Thank you very much. I’m not sure the text was rotated at all. I think the typeface was Italicised or skewed. I’m saying this because where the “4”s meet remained parallel in the original, whereas in your version it doesn’t. That said it was a great tutorial as always. 🙂

    Great Tutorial. Can you please make a tutorial on how to make a text look completely round without converting the text into an object. A guy named Tarek Akkad has something made but he makes the complete Balloon Typeface by modeling it. A

    Thank you or your efforts.

    Stimati ziaristi , mai lasati laudele si vdeti cine conduce o scoala ; primarul , care este ales ,nu are habar ce inseamna un examen el vine doar cu propunerea ceea ce nu este absolut deloc corect , ce sa facem politica sau educatie , o sa avem numai rezultate ,,bune,, daca directorii numiti vor avea grija numai de imaginea lor .Ce sa mai vorbim primarii trebuie sa si vada interesele personae de interesele lollanicicor ca la noi la nimeni .

    Has the world gone insane? Why should you not be able to keep a dog on a leash or outside! This is another example of how the Antis have no logical or moral compass. We need to move our position to the far right and refuse to compromise at all cost.

    i see i am late to the party on these comments so here is the short and sweet version. 1.) please set up a beta site in which you use youtubers to test proposed changes before a site wide roll out. obviously there are differences in your internal site versus the live site. i'd be happy to be a beta tester for free and give you feed back on the changes.
