    I am new to cinema 4d and 3d in general, so hopefully this will be an easy one to answer. I want to make some text and graphical elements extrude along a path in 3D. I can get the basic extrusion, but what I am having trouble with is that the elements need to start out fairly small and get larger over time… It is probably easier of I show you what I mean… I made a version of the effect I am after using 2D elements in After Effects to fake a 3D look. I want to try do this same thing with traditional 3D elements…

    you just need to animate the Scale as well as Growth in a SweepNurb. Make the spline being swept small and scale it up as the growth is animated so it ends up being the size you want.
