Re: Cinema 4d and Cinema 4d Lite fall back AE by Alex Udell on Mar 27, 2014 at 5:20:50 pm
In case you were wondering....here's the answer....
In After Effects, inside of the CINEWARE Effects window, there should be an Options button. If you click this Options button, you should be able to set what version of C4D you want to use for rendering, and which version of C4D you want to open up when you choose "Edit Original".
By default they should be set to the Lite versions, which are buried in the AE CC Plug-ins directory. Sounds like somewhere along the way, these have been custom set to look at the commercial Broadcast installation.
If you want to revert these back to the CINEMA 4D Lite version, set them to the following paths within the Options window:
CINEMA 4D render path - Define the CINEMA 4D version for rendering:
Applications \ Adobe \ Adobe After Effects CC \ Plug-ins \ MAXON CINEWARE AE \ (CINEWARE Support) \ bin \CineRender.app
CINEMA 4D executable path - Define the CINEMA 4D version for "Edit Original":
Applications \ Adobe \ Adobe After Effects CC \ Plug-ins \ MAXON CINEWARE AE \ (CINEWARE Support) \ lite \ CINEMA 4D Lite.app
I hope this helps. Please let us know if you need further assistance.
