Ribbon Banner Question - With Image

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

 

I am trying to create a Ribbon Banner that are seen in quite a lot of logos. The type of thing I mean can be found here : http://i.imgur.com/U5eYl.jpg

 

I was wondering how I could create this in Cinema and then Animate it sweeping on and off. I have tried bending and deforming a plane buy to no avail.

 

Hope someone can help me,

 

Harry

I just made the initial spline in a symmetry object to make it exactly equal, then made an instance object out of the symmetry to create a full spline. This keeps the setup parametric for easy changes.

Thanks Grundly,

 

I am having one other issue to do with rendering the spline wrap.

 

When I push "control + r" it renders fine but when I go to save the file with "shift + r" the spline wrap doesn't take effect and It renders just a flat plane.

 

I have found a workaround that is I convert the Boole object and its contents into a polygon object but then I can't animate it.

 

Any ideas?

The boole object is there just to the cuts on the end, but you should probably create those cuts with an alpha in a texture. To fix this problem though, convert the instance object to a full object spline.

Thanks again fro the help!

 

I am having one last problem when animating the spline wrap "to" from 100% to 0%. I want the spline to appear from left to right, but when I change the value it is appearing from the centre to the sides.

 

Thanks again so much for your help.
