Hello...

I don't know who of you are allowed to say what about future products. But I'm trying to budget to do a budget so I need a little info...

We have one really strong Cinema 4d artist on out team.

What are the general limitations of what he can build in a full seat of Cinema 4d that can safely translate to useable elements to other artists using the Cinema 4d Lite versions in the forthcoming AE CC?

thanks!!!

Alex

Since you can bake about everything to PSR, unless they don't let you open full seat projects on lite versions. I'd say 99% of the animations will be transferable.

Not sure on the renderer capabilities and lights/materials though.

Just me guessing...

As always, Todd Kopriva has some great resources:

It's important to note that CINEWARE (the C4D renderer implemented as an Ae effect) is different than C4D Lite (a feature-reduced, bundled version of C4D).

CINEWARE should be able to render whatever your C4D artist can churn out, unless it uses the physical camera, post-effects like sketch & toon, Xrefs, or third-party plugins. In these cases (and in some others), it's still best to use the traditional AEC workflow with pre-rendered images from C4D.
