In this series of tutorials, we will learn the powerful new workflow between After Effects and CINEMA 4D using the CINEWARE effect.

We take the first lesson to layout the differences between all this new terminology, then we jump right into creating our project by learning how to use CINEMA 4D projects in After Effects. We learn ways to speed up your workflow with the render settings and how to use cameras interchangeably back and forth between both software.

This training is full of helpful tips for getting some of the tougher parts of the CINEWARE interchange working for you. Issues like shadows and stacking order are explained in-depth so that you can let your creativity flow. This tutorial assumes that you have had intermediate experience in After Effects and beginner to intermediate experience in CINEMA 4D. However, we take a step-by-step approach so you can follow along.

If you've never used CINEMA 4D before, it is highly recommended that you watch the Beginner's Guide to CINEMA 4D.

By the end of this tutorial, you will have a firm grasp on how to start using CINEWARE in your own projects.
