In this quick tip I'll show you how to totally bypass Photoshop and create 2D text materials and apply to 3D objects as textures by using Cinema 4D's Spline Shader. Using the Spline Shader you can use text as simply as a 2D resolution independent material, or get creative and use is in the bump or displacement channels of a material to get some embossed or stamped metal looks. The Spline Shader also isn't limited to just text, you can use any spline shape to create a texture!
Here's a tutorial where I show you how to create this Illustrative 2D look using C4D's Cel Shader:

Most non-photorealistic rendering solutions tend to involve brilliant but unwieldy new technologies,
such as volume-based rendering engines or complex image analysis. Similar results can often be achieved
using simpler methods and non-proprietary toolsets, even toolsets designed with other effects in mind.
Our studio has been experimenting with ways to achieve a hand-painted look with basic tools that are
common to most 3D applications, in this case Lightwave.# vimeo.com/5660045 Uploaded 55.7K Plays 883 Likes 35 Comments
In this episode of DojoTV, we'll talk about getting started with X-Particles, the end of After Effects' raytracing 3D engine, new tutorials, and much more.

In this tutorial, we'll explore one of the basic features of Cinema 4D that will help you when modeling or exporting your model for After Effects: Subdivide. We'll go over how Trapcode Form and Plexus render points and how subdividing your polygons can give you more control when working.

In this tutorial we will look at using reference to enhance the believability of our origami models and also how to tackle this process by using a procedural radial mirroring technique. Which includes:
>> Modelling a radial section
>> Cloning all of the pieces radially to form the correct model
>> Using the connect object to weld all of the points on the model
>> Then all of this is connected into a subdivision surface object
In this tutorial I am not concerned too much about achieving perfect topology, this its more about an insight into the creative process, workflow and problem solving issues with the model.
