View Full Version : Importing EPS with original color

12-12-2006, 09:58 AM
I am trying to import my client's logo to the modeler. It comes in fine (just like the tutorial). However, my client's logo police are quite adament that the three d version have the exact same colors as the flat.

Can the modeler import the eps with original colors, or will I have to try and recreate the colors within the modeler.

Brand new to Arsenal and Lightwave...hope this isn't too basic a question.

The EPS importer doesn't read the colours (which is a shame) so you'd have to write down the RGB values and re-apply them.

Bear in mind though, that when you light and render your scene the colours will change anyway as shadows, hotspots and reflections take effect.

If the "logo police" are really strict, you can get the color of the original by making the luminance value 100% and diffuse, specular etc 0% but this would of course make for less "3D" looking renders! Playing with a combo of diffuse and luminance may get you closer to matching the exact original. Good luck!
