Closer integration with CINEMA 4D allows you to use Adobe After Effects and MAXON CINEMA 4D together. You can create a CINEMA 4D file from within After Effects. After you've added a layer based on the CINEMA 4D file to a composition, you can modify it in CINEMA 4D, save it, and have the results instantly show up in After Effects. This streamlined workflow does not require you to slowly batch render the passes to disk or create image sequence files. The pass images are available through a live render connection to the C4D file without using intermediate files.
