After Effects.
With MAXON CINEWARE in the new After Effects your compositing workflow will be catapulted into a new dimension. Import native CINEMA 4D scenes as assets in After Effects and utilize CINEMA 4D’s powerful multi-pass workflow as layers to achieve your vision. Update the CINEMA 4D scene at any time and you’ll instantly see the results inside After Effects. There’s no need to wait for long renders or manage intermediate files because the CINEMA 4D render engine is built right in After Effects. Your 3D workflow has never been easier.

SUPPORTS NATIVE
CINEMA 4D FILES.
SO MANY FORMATS, ONE SOLUTION.
Your workflow just flows. Import your native CINEMA 4D scenes very simply, via drag-and-drop, into After Effects. CINEMA 4D supports popular 3D exchange formats like Alembic, COLLADA, OBJ, FBX and more, so you can easily integrate 3D creations into After Effects. Integration of 3D content into After Effects projects has never been easier, regardless of whether animated or static objects are involved.
RENDER DIRECTLY IN
AFTER EFFECTS.
SO MANY POSSIBILITIES,
ONE FINAL RENDER.
With CINEWARE you have access to the high-quality CINEMA 4D render engine directly in After Effects. See and edit animations at the highest level, including reflections, refractions and Global Illumination. You always have complete control over your rendering.
SEAMLESS INTERACTION.
SO MANY CHANGES, ONE FILE.
Satisfy the last-minute whims of your clients by simply editing your CINEMA 4D scenes. As soon as you save and return to After Effects you’ll immediately see the changes. No intermediate render files are required. All you have to manage is one CINEMA 4D scene.
COMPOSITING PASSES
AND LAYERS.
SO MUCH FLEXIBILITY,
ONE COMPOSITE.
Enhance your composite with CINEMA 4D’s powerful multi-pass system — assign material and lighting passes, pull object-specific alphas and isolate CINEMA 4D layers for each CINEWARE instance in your comp. Adjust opacity to tone down reflections and shadows, or apply effects like depth blur to refine the final result. Use as many CINEWARE layers as you need, change the CINEMA 4D scene whenever you wish, and avoid unnecessary renders and files.
3D NAVIGATION.
SO MANY PERSPECTIVES,
ONE CAMERA.
Adjust your point of view directly with the Camera tool in After Effects, or choose the perspective for each CINEWARE layer based on any camera in the CINEMA 4D scene. You have the best of both worlds right at your fingertips.
UPGRADE AND UNLEASH
YOUR CREATIVITY.
SO MANY ASPIRATIONS,
ONE CHOICE.
Begin your adventure into the next dimension with CINEMA 4D Lite included in the new After Effects. This taste of CINEMA 4D’s powerful workflow and feature set offers many of the basic building blocks of 3D.
