c4d scene to ae does not work

Recommended Posts

I have c4d r21 and after effects c 2019 version 16.1.3

 

I have followed this tutorial: 

So I have copied the file C4DImporter.aex to my C:\Program Files\MAXON Cinema 4D R21\Exchange Plugins\aftereffects\Importer\Win\CS_CC

But it does not work 😞

If I try to import the aec file, i get nothing in AE. No errors, just nothing comes in. Please help if somebody knows..

This is quite an old workflow for your version of C4D. The new C4D integration in after effects cuts out all the .aec stuff.  In after effects there is the classic 3d renderer  and C4D renderer. Then you can bring in the whole c4d file and extract all the models with external compositing tags. (From memory this)

    I'm just beginning, but it is now easy to bring Cinema 4D projects into After Effects.

     

    Go to top menu of After Effects and select File, when menu drops down select Import, then select File or Multiple Files. Select one or more of your .cd4 files and import into Project. It is now a simple process.

    It should be fixed now in the latest C4D update but if not you can always change your AEC files manually like so
