Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing our render passes into After Effects from CINEMA 4D, part of Creating a Show Open in After Effects and Cinema 4D.
…So, here we are, back in After Effects.…And we're ready to import the rendered files that we've got from Cinema 4D.…So, to do this, we're just going to open up the AEC file.…So I choose File > Import.…In our render folder.…Or, in your render folder, wherever you rendered out your passes because…we checked that box to save out a file for the After Effects.…We've got this show open aec file.…So, I'm just going to select that and choose Open.…
If you can't open this file, you need to make sure…you've got the Cinema 4D importer plug-in installed into After Effects.…So, this process is all explained in Cinema 4D Essentials.…So, after the import's complete, you can see that we've got two folders.…We twirl down our show open folder.…We've got the composition and, ambient diffuses shadow and specular passes.…And we've got this other folder called, special passes.…And inside of that we've got depth, motion, and our object buffers.…So, I'm going to twirl these back up.…
And I'm just going to input the original footage.…
