Cineware is a plugin that is bundled with Adobe After Effects and offers a way of getting scenes created in Cinema 4D into After Effects without rendering. In this video, learn the Cineware workflow.
- [Instructor] Cineware is a plugin that is bundled…with Adobe After Effects.…The main idea behind Cineware is…that you can import your scenes made in Cinema 4D…into After Effects without rendering from C4D beforehand,…which sounds amazing.…There are some pros and cons, and let's take a look.…So we've got a Cinema 4D file in our project here,…and all we can do is drag it onto a new composition,…a layer is created, and it has the Cineware effect on it.…I'm just going to zoom in,…and I'll change the renderer to OpenGL.…
For OpenGL previews, Cineware is pretty useful.…We can see this playing back quite nicely in view port,…and takes are supported as well,…so we could choose a particular shot…that we're interested in,…and if we just render that through,…we can see, we can start to build up a picture of our edit…and then we can decide which frames we want to use…for our final, and then go back to Cinema 4D…and render those at full res.…So for getting previews out of Cinema 4D,…Cineware is pretty useful.…
Let's look at a different example here.…
Here, learn key foundational concepts, such as spline modeling, lighting, and materials, which are crucial to understanding exactly how this 3D application functions. Instructor Andy Needham covers practical techniques for extruding shapes; working with MoGraph tools such as Cloners and Effectors; and adding lighting and camera views for fully realized 3D motion graphics. Plus, find out how to integrate assets from Adobe Illustrator, composite multipass renders with the After Effects and C4D workflow, and use the Takes System to try different materials and settings and export your projects in the exact sizes and resolutions you need.
