Create Chiseled Text in Cinema 4D

Add a nice chiseled look to your text in Cinema 4D with this tutorial.  As I note in the video, the basic technique is the same across every font, letter, and even logos, but each one has it’s a unique way to get to the end result.  Here I show you the basics of how you can achieve this look for whatever text or logo you are working with. If you have any questions or requests of how to do this effect on a logo or some other font, please leave them in the comment section.
