View Full Version : turning bezier curves into faces

I just drew a bezier curve that looks like a logo I have to model
and animate.
When I finish drawing the curve, I try to bevel it, but to no avail.
Try to just extrude it and it does extrude, but the front face is
not there and it seems like the only faces are one the side of the
object after I have extruded it.
Is the pen tool the only tool that I can actually create a face
(polygon) with?
I have always used bezier curves to draw stuff I need to either
bevel or extrude and it's a very exact way of drawing for me. It
seems to me that the pen tool is the only drawing tool that makes
faces that are instant polygons once the curve is closed.
Very frustrating.
Any tips?
Thanks,
Art

You need to freeze (Ctrl+D) your spline to turn it into a polygon.
