I had the pleasure of popping in on Adobe's Twitch channel over at Twitch.tv/Adobe, where I talked with Adobe's Paul Trani about the different options for taking a 3D logo from illustrator and creating a 3D image out of it. We talk about the differences between 3D in Photoshop and a full 3D package such as Cinema 4D. In the first half of this live stream recording, Paul gets into some fun ways you can bring a vector logo from Illustrator into Photoshop, and in the second portion I get into cracking opening Cinema 4D or Cinema 4D Lite (included in After Effects CC) to create a 3D logo out of the "Creativity 360" illustration that we started with.
Whether you're completely new to working in 3D animation in either Photoshop or Cinema 4D, or a seasoned pro, this live show is packed with tons of tips for working in 3D.
Here is a still render of what we worked up during the live show:
You can also now follow me on Twitch for live videos tutorials, Q&A sessions, and the occasional Fallout 4 webcast at Twitch.tv/SeanFrangella
