Join EJ Hassenfratz for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Mograph Techniques: Animating with C4D Effectors.
Thanks for following along and viewing my course.…Before I close, I want to pass along some useful resource links that have helped…me in my career in motion graphics.…First, there's a ton of great CINEMA 4D courses done by my fellow authors on…lynda.com, including Rob Garrott, who has a CINEMA 4D Essentials and Design in…Motion Series that will help you get up to speed on all the basics of CINEMA 4D.…Second, here is the very popular greyscalegorilla.com that breaks down a lot of…popular motion graphic styles used in broadcast and movies.…
Next up is motioneers.net, who have their own MoGraph section for…specific MoGraph techniques.…You also want to check out motionworks.net, hosted by John Dickinson, who breaks…down his own network bumpers he's made of his day job, and also has a bunch of…CINEMA 4D and After Effects training and resources.…Helloluxx.com is another great site that has a lot of advance MoGraph techniques…and his own training series.…Lastly, I have my own motion graphics blog, eyedesyn.com, that I'd be honored for you to visit.…

Q: I rendered a Compositing Project File (AEC) from CINEMA 4D, but I am unable to import that file into After Effects.
A: In order to import an AEC file into After Effects, you will need to have the free Cinema 4D Importer plugin for After Effects installed. The plugin can be downloaded here: http://www.maxon.net/support/updates/plugins.html
For more information on this plugin, including instructions on how to install it, refer to Cinema 4D Essentials 5: Rendering and Compositing with Rob Garrott. The movie titled "Rendering and importing elements into After Effects" explains how to install this plugi
