The most recent versions of AE don't use ray-tracing. What are you running? And what is your OS?

Hi Dave

Thanks for the reply but just sorted it -- software incompatibility -lens flare plugin with moblur crashes my system.

That's right, no ray tracing.

It's been supplanted by the better (I'm told) C4D Lite which now comes with AE and does the same stuff, only faster. Fast is good.

The ray tracer hasn't been removed. It's still around and still works.

You're right that the ray tracing renderer introduced in CS6 has reached a dead end, though, and that the C4D workflow is the way forward.

Hi Walter

-- have you tried it ? -- wondering if it is just as easy to use or more like a 3D package?

[chris brett] "have you tried it ? -- wondering if it is just as easy to use or more like a 3D package?"

You're referring to C4D? It is a full 3D application, but it's pretty friendly as far as 3D applications go.
