    xdp6 sports teams logos - 3D~ish, metal~ish, glossy bevel look

    Hello everyone!
    I have not visited in a while, but excited to be here again!
    I hope everyone is safe and healthy throughout this terrible ordeal!
    ... and that you all had wonderful times this past celebration days!

    In a totally non important and self absorbed (nothing better to do) situation, and indulging my lack of abilities and lazy approach to a "designer wannabe"...
    I wanted to ask you experts a fast and easy way to "mimic", "copy" or "emulate" the design style of the TV networks for Pro Team Logos (see image attached - all rights to ESPN).

    I have attempted some creations myself (only for my personal use) and have not been able to recreate the shinny, glossy look of the TV ones (myattempts.png)

    In my network I know a few guys from ESPN and they tell me they use CINEMA 4D to make these - animation and all - which (for now) i'm not really interested on doing...

    any guidance, tutorials or effects that may be in your toolbox to get a bit closer to the broadcast quality are appreciated (and I know that many hours of practice and self training may get me there, but as I have stated before - looking for - the "lazy" fast approach (found a old tutorial "Xara Plus Filter forge - Add a little bling!" from Sunwings Studios 2012) that looks promising.

    Thank you Gary!
    Yes, I have been using them, but what do I use or how do I get the gloss and shine?

    See Keith's logo in the post below yours. Or try something like this.

    Good to see you back, by the way.

    Hi Ernesto, here's how I'd go about it:

    + Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB SSD + 232 GB SSD + 250 GB SSD portable drive + ISP = BT + Web Hosting = TSO Host

    Not sure but adding to GP's post you might try cloning then working on the clone try the transparency tool to try to get a shiny look.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
