Create a Bendy Text Design in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial we’ll recreate this Scandinavian inspired design in Cinema 4D or Cinema 4D Lite!  It’s a design made up of a piece of text with layers peeling away revealing transparency on the backside of peeled back portions.  We’ll break down how you model all the pieces and set up your text so you can smoothly bend the geometry of your text spline or any other spline you’d like to use.  Next, we’ll texture our object, creating the plastic, glass, and wood materials as well as light the scene.  Finally, we will cover how you can easily iterate by changing the text in the Text Spline Object by using Instances.

By the way, this tutorial can be followed along using Cinema 4D Lite that comes for FREE with Adobe Creative Cloud!

And as always, if you have any questions, be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create anything cool using this technique, be sure to share it with me! Thanks for watching!
