Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video CINEMA 4D Exporter, part of After Effects: 2015 Creative Cloud Updates.
- [Voiceover] Another tool which I think…has been seeing considerable improvement…over the life of After Effects CC 2015…is File, Export, Maxon Cinema 4D Exporter.…This now allows you to export text layers that are 3D,…as well as 3D shape layers,…into a Maxon Cinema 4D project file…that you can open into Cinema 4D Lite.…I'll start with the shape layer…and then we'll move over to text layers,…'cause they have some different options.…The first thing to know is if you don't have a 3D layer…and then you go to File, Export, Maxon Cinema 4D,…you get a warning that no 3D layers are found…so therefore nothing can be exported.…
You need to have a 3D layer switch selected…for your shape layer even if you've not extruded it yet…using the ray trace rendering agent inside After Effects.…Some of these various shape treatments,…like Twist, are indeed obeyed.…However, the repeater is not copied over into Cinema 4D.…There's what Repeater does,…and here's what Twist does,…and I've animated Twist over time.…We'll enable it.…No need to select the layer.…
