Hello CreativeCowcommunity,

I am having trouble with the workflow of a project, here is the situation.

I have a scene in Cinema 4d, I have created planes (placeholders) with external composition tags. In After Effects Im trying to replace these placeholders with my Quicktime (.MOV) footage shot on a green screen which I will key out.

I have tried going to Cinema 4d Render settings and saving the Compositing Project File but when I open the AEC file in a After Effects Composition it gives me a Camera layer, light layer and a PNG sequence with Smpte Color bars (no use)

Currently I have my Cinema 4d file in my After Effects composition with Cineware, I clicked Extract on Cinema 4D Scene Data so I have my camera, light and placeholders but there is no way to track my green screen footage positioning to the placeholders.

I am using Cinema 4d R16 and After Effects CC and cineware.

Thanks for any help!

Key the footage in AE. Render in a lossless codec that supports an alpha channel. Import the resulting file into C4D.
