Ever been wanting center crosshairs in your Cinema 4D viewport like you have in After Effects? Having that center crosshair is a huge help when making sure your composition is centered. Watch my quick tip tutorial to see my simple solution.

[UPDATE: Maxon saw my tutorial and actually created a plug-in that adds a crosshairs to your viewport, but you can only get it unless you're a member of Cineversity. You can find it here.]
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.
