C4D lite after effects issue

Hi, I want to preface this with the fact that I'm super new to C4D and I have intermediate After effects knowledge.
I've posted this on a number of forums and I haven't gotten a single response anywhere. I'm having an issue where I've created a globe of the earth with a cloud layer, a dark side city lights layer and an atmosphere. when I render a frame in C4D everything looks great but when I save and then hop back over to AE the city lights and the clouds don't show up when I render at final quality. Another similar instance I've had is if I use a sky it also wont render in AE.
What am I doing wrong? is this some kind of limitation of C4D lite?
EDIT: I managed to fix the issue. I did a bunch more searching around and found that someone else had a similar issue. I was able to fix it by going into the C4D file and then chose "save project with assets". then imported that project file. I guess it's a glitch in AE where it can't find some of the textures unless it's all saved together like this.
