Cinema 4D is a popular 3D modeling and animation software from Maxon(www.maxon.net).
Closer integration with CINEMA 4D allows you to use Adobe After Effects and Maxon CINEMA 4D together. You can create a CINEMA 4D file (.c4d) from within After Effects and you can work with complex 3D elements, scenes, and animations.
To enable interoperability, CINERENDER, the Maxon CINEMA 4D rendering engine, is integrated with Adobe After Effects. After Effects can render Cinema 4D files, and you can control some aspects of rendering, camera, and scene content on a per-layer basis. This streamlined workflow does not require you to create intermediate pass or image sequence files.
