A complete rewrite with a beautiful new Interface…

aec4d pro ui

Sounds good, but what's new???

aec4d proOverwrite Layers…

You've exported Objects to After Effects and now you've changed some parameters and you need to update only those Layers in your current Composition? No Problem!

AEC4D-PRO knows which Objects you've exported!

Select the Objects you want to update and hit Overwrite Layers, the Objects you've had selected in Cinema 4D, are going to be updated instantly in After Effects.





aec4d proImport Textures, Stills & Multipasses!!!

Importing your renderings and images has never been so easy…!

  • [DEFAULT-CLICK]: Open After Effects if it's closed, or activate your current selected Version.
  • [ALT-CLICK]: Switch quickly between your installed After-Effects Versions.
  • [SHIFT-CLICK]: Import Textures, Stills & Multipasses

By default the path from your rendersettings: Regular Image 'File…' is used to search for multipasses and footage… ( c4d-tokens and relative paths will automatically be converted. ) Oh, and you can also specify your own path within the “Settings”.

  • Handling of Stage-Objects
  • Support for Text-Layers
  • Export “Film-Offset”
  • Export Markers
  • …and so much more….
