Cineware is a completely new way of working between After Effects and Cinema 4D, allowing you to insert Cinema 4D files directly into After Effects without rendering. Imagine Live Compositing™ directly in After Effects without rendering Cinema 4D files. If you change anything in your Cinema 4D file, it will automatically be updated in your AE file.
Cinema 4D Lite.
The upcoming version of After Effects will include a free version of Cinema 4D called Cinema 4D Lite. It’s a new version of C4D designed specifically for After Effects. It is an easy and free way for After Effects users to try 3D in their workflow without buying anything other than After Effects. We think this will open 3D to a whole new group of users who have never tried 3D before. And when After Effects users find that they are using Cinema 4D Lite in their projects and need more power, there is a simple upgrade arrow to the professional versions of the software, such as the broadcast or studio version.
