Discover the possibilities with CINEMA 4D Lite and Cineware in the new Adobe After Effects

Explore the exciting possibilities with the new live 3D pipeline in the next Adobe After Effects. In this tutorial series, you'll learn how to create a motion graphics piece in CINEMA 4D Lite and composite and render it through Cineware in Adobe After Effects.

This video provides an overview of the project.



- The new version of Adobe After Effects includes powerful integration with MAXON Cinema 4D. This includes both the Cineware layer, which is essentially the Cinema 4D render engine inside of After Effects, and the Cinema 4D Lite application which provides the power to create lots of great 3D visuals. In this tutorial series, we're going to look at how to create a pure motion graphics scene in Cinema 4D Lite and composite it and render it through Cineware in Adobe After Effects. After that, we'll jump into some of the really awesome things you can do if you upgrade to Cinema 4D Broadcast or Cinema 4D Studio, such as add real time dynamics and particle systems. I want to thank Nick Campbell at for putting this scene together for us. One of the things you'll learn as you dig deeper into 3D is that lighting really makes things pop. And Nick is one of the masters at lighting in Cinema 4D. He's got some great tutorials on his website,, that you should take a look at if you want to learn more about lighting in Cinema 4D. He also offers some great products, including HDRI Studio Packs and his Light Kit Pro. So I hope you'll enjoy this basic overview into the power of the Cinema 4D integration in the new version of Adobe After Effects. Let's get started.
