Want to take your Logo design to the next level??
Then this course is for you!
During this course I will show you how to create 3D Objects in this case text from a curve generated from Illustrator, We will also look at generating 3D text within Maya itself.
Finally I will show you how to add materials, set up a basic three point light system and render out using Mental ray, this course on Creating Logos - A Maya Online Course Custom Logo and Text is a must!
So Exactly what do I learn from this course?
This course is very thorough and cover quite a lot for such a short course giving you the info fast!
Take the Creating Logos - A Maya Online Course Custom Logo and Text course today!
I hope you enjoy this course and get a lot out of it

In this course I will be showing you a quick client brief on this project also remember to download the project files!
Lets begin by setting up the project in Maya.
In this lesson we will continue and add geometry to out curves.
Lets have a quick talk about adding geometry to our surfaces and also cleaning our scene up.
Lets do a conversion from Nurbs to Polygons.
Its always a good idea to use the minimum ammout of polygons needed for our 3D models this keeps thing clean and fast, in this lesson we will start quading up our model.
Remember Maya likes quads why?
More on Beveling.
Common problems are squashings/pinching these happen often where there is a sharp point in the geometry we can further refine the geo so that this is less obvious.
Correcting the N and the A
Lets finish off our Logo corrections, whenever you create anything in 3D you will always want to make it the best it can be either by positioning edge loops, reflowing topology there is always something you can do to make it better, however its good to know when to STOP!
Here we will use some baic Maya materials and colours to our logo.
We need to create a ground and a backdrop for our logo, so lets do it!
Lets use the logo sent by client to get an exact colour match for our Logo.
In this lesson we will switch our materials to Mental Ray materials, as we are using mental ray to render it makes sence to use there materials (you dont have to but generally it is a better material, specially if you are rendering out layers)
Basic rendering with Mental Ray
Great we finished the logo and rendered it out, I will now put the rendered clips into After Effects for you to see the final animation.
So we have looked at bringing in custom curves from Illustrator EPS files, but Maya can generate text straight off the bat, check out this lesson.
This is the last lesson in this course I hope you have learnt a thing or two along the way :)
All the best
