Multipass layers give you the ability to control the fine details of your…project without always having to go back into Cinema 4D to make those changes.…Let's go ahead and make some changes in our project so…you can see how we can control these details using Multipass.…Inside of our AfterEffects project, let's select the Multipass Cinema 4D layer.…And then press Cmd + e or Ctrl + e on Windows to edit the…original file.…Now, I just want to focus on the words or the letters in my project.…
So, I'm going to go to my Layers panel and just turn off the visibility for my bars.…Also, I just want to be able to zoom in…really closely to the words without changing my animation.…So, I'm going to go ahead and disable the current view for…my camera and just work with the default view inside of Cinema.…Once we're a little…closer to the words here, let's go up under…our Render settings by clicking the clapboard with the cog.…Notice we have an option for Multipass.…Let's go ahead and enable Multipass, and then go down to the Multipass button.…
Author Ian Robinson walks through the basics of using C4D Lite and moving between C4D and After Effects. Learn to match your frame rates and project settings, create 3D type and other models, apply materials, add animation, and output your project for compositing in After Effects. Covering the basic linear workflow, this course is the perfect introduction for the experienced After Effects artist who's new to the C4D workflow.
