- Hi, I'm Rob Garrott. Welcome to Cinema 4D Essentials: Rendering and Compositing. Cinema 4D is a tool that's part of a much larger workflow for creating graphics and effects. Once you've made an image or animation in Cinema 4D, you always have to get it out of the view port and into a compositing program, like Photoshop or After Effects. We're going to start off by looking at how the 3D render engine and render settings turn your 3D scene into pixels, and how you can get those pixels into After Effects. Next, we'll go into detail on the process of setting up a scene and rendering it out for multi-pass compositing in After Effects.
Working with your images and compositing is where you add the finishing touches that will really set your work apart. So let's get started with Cinema 4D Essentials: Rendering and Compositing.
