BnBGobo99 uses Inkscape's bitmap tracing capability to quickly convert logo images in to Blender objects. Neat.
I've been doing a lot of Inkscape to Blender work lately for various projects. Inkscape has greatly sped my 2D-to-3D logo conversion when using a .jpg or similar source file instead of an .svg. The secret lies in the "Trace Bitmap" window and it's various settings.
I wanted to share with you all how it can help you do similar conversions in your projects, too.
