OK, I'm a noob with C4D, I've gone through a bunch of tutorials, and have got more to go, but don't have any experience.
I'm working on a project, where I've tracked footage in Adobe After FX, added a cube in C4D (Lite) then pulled the C4D file back to AFX. The camera is panning around the object. What I don't know is how do I render the footage, so I get a lifelike metal cube? I've set up the material as best I can, but can't get the same effect in render as in After FX.
Do I export from C4D lite, and then import to AFX? Or does AFX have it's own exporter that renders C4D objects correctly?
Here's a rendered view in C4D
This is the item in After FX. Basically shows the C4D preview, no detail.
I tried a basic After FX render, and I get the same detail as above, I don't get the proper C4D render.
Really appreciate any help I can get.
PS: I'd also love to work out how to make the object show a shadow on the wood below.
