Hi all!

I have a some kind of problem with Cinema4D and After Effects. I made some 3D Text title animation in Cinema4D (text is 3D and extruded with Extrude NURBS and have shatter and explode effects, camera movement and lights). I want to import that animation into After Effects and then in After Effects to only change text title, but to keep that shatter and explosion effects made in Cinema4D. Is that posible? I just want to be able to change text title in After Effects, with all that effects (shatter and explosion)made in Cinema4D.
Sorry if my english is not so good, it's not my matter language...

Thanks!

That's not possible. C4D doesn't export effects to AE; it exports rendered frames/video, and camera and lighting information so you can composite additional elements in.

In other words, C4D actually does the 3D text and effects. AE gets those as flat 2D layers, and it gets the camera and lights so that other elements in AE can appear in the same 3D space.

I'm sorry, it is not possible. You need to do the work in C4D.
