I need to animate a phone and then add animated UI footage into the screen in the phone. Is there a way to do this in after effects to get the timings right? (ie: animate the object in cinema 4d and somehow track the footage onto the screen of the phone in after effects?) Or am I better off adding the footage to the phone screen as a texture?

You can animate the Phone in C4D. Import the C4D file into AE, drop it into a new comp. This will apply the Cineware effect to the layer. In here, chose to EXTRACT the data from C4D. This will import the same camera used in C4D so you can now create your UI in AE. As long as the UI is 3D in AE it should line up with your C4D animation :-)
