Last night on #MoChat we discussed the newly formed alliance of Adobe and Maxon, particularly the new Cineware plugin, C4D Lite, and related workflows. Members from both companies joined us to answer questions. Some highlights:

  • Work on Cineware started just after CS6 shipped. Adobe talked with Maxon to see how they could improve workflow between After Effects and Cinema 4D. Maxon saw it as a natural extension of what they’ve already been doing.
  • Cineware is a self-contained Cinema 4D render engine, but does not support Physical Renderer yet.
  • Adobe posted this list of detail on Cinema 4D integration with After Effects (answer a lot of questions on its own).
  • Cineware is CPU based (for now), multithreaded. No GPU rendering (yet). (Did you get those parenthetical qualifiers? OpenGL support is a high priority.)
  • You can essentially use Dynamic Link to bring C4D files into Premiere Pro.
  • ‘Centered Comp Camera’ will do the math to align C4D’s world coordinates (0,0,0) with AE’s (half comp width/height, 0).
  • Net Render will not work from within Cineware (at least for now).
  • C4D plugins are not currently supported in Cineware.
  • AE will look for a commercial install of C4D (Broadcast, Studio, etc) and launch that before trying to launch C4D Lite.
  • Multiple instances of a C4D scene will utilize Global Performance Cache, provided settings are the same.
  • You can choose which specific C4D cameras to use in Cineware or use an AE camera.
  • Registering Cinema 4D Lite will unlock some Mograph features.
  • Cineware layers can be time-remapped, interpreted, and conformed, just like any other footage-based layer.
  • Cineware is a 1.0 release. Lots of room to grow.
  • And yes, #MoChat did trend.

Hi Matt! RT : Hello. This is my first #MoChat. Super excited about this one! #mochat9:03 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

So first thing’s first. This was huge news to come out before NAB. How did this alliance come about? #mochat9:03 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

buckle up and get ready for the ride gentlemen. #mochat9:03 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Hey buddy! 🙂 #mochat9:03 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

I can do a quick overview from the Adobe perspective.. #mochat9:03 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Welcome! #mochat9:03 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

You are more likely to do that with your words over mine buddy! Come hangout after? #mochat9:03 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

yup. im in for sure tonight #mochat9:04 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Hey #MoChat audience. Ready to fill you in!9:04 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Basically we saw a cool workflow with 3d properties and image sequences between Ae and C4D #mochat9:04 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

I’ll remind people about the hangout after. Should I direct them to you? #mochat9:04 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

YEAH BUDDY! welcome Paul! #MoChat9:04 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

evening MoChatters.. #mochat9:04 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

be right back. getting the kid to bed #mochat9:04 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Though when we talked with Maxon, wondered if we could take it further – looked at dynamic link between Pr and Ae and started there #mochat9:04 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

G’evening everybody 🙂 #mochat9:05 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Heya Paul welcome!! #lookingforthewine 8) #mochat9:05 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Howdy! RT : evening MoChatters.. #mochat9:05 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

thats how cineware was born – Maxon brought the engine of C4D inside Ae, and it created a live link between the two #mochat9:05 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

That would be ideal 🙂 Thanks #mochat9:05 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Evening everyone! Hope you’re all recovered from NAB 🙂 #mochat9:06 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

How difficult was it to package Cineware in AE? Does it rely on C4D app, or is it all self-contained in plugin? #mochat9:07 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Is using C4D in AE ( Cineware) will rendering be CPU or GPU? (Blender flys like a rocket using GPU). #mochat9:07 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Then Maxon put a Cinema4D lite together based on Cinema4D prime – and wham – thats whats coming next 🙂 can explain more #mochat9:07 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Yes. #mochat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Does C4D Lite have less capabilities that Prime? #mochat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

That just blew my mind. #mochat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

RT Maxon put a Cinema4D lite together based on Cinema4D prime – and wham – thats whats coming next 🙂 #MoChat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Thanks! RT : Currently uses their standard, standard draft and software renderer on CPU #mochat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Seems to me that C4D is doing all the innovation. other than mass of users what did AE bring to the table. (cont) #mochat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

It works! Nick Campbell even got it working via Dropbox shared folders. #mochat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

… I love you guys. #mochat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

There’s likely to be a lot of questions flying around. If it gets too crazy, we’ll start summarizing so we can survive the night! #mochat9:08 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

‘s been innovating or years now… Im not dissing on AE just asking.. #mochat9:09 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

The timing for this couldn’t be better, as I step out of the AE world and into Cinema4D. 🙂 #MoChat9:09 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

It’s self contained. Cineware can render most anything from Cinema4D (some baking required) – Cinema4D Lite is separate #mochat9:09 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

From the #Maxon3D pt of view, connecting with #AfterEffects was a just a natural extension of what we have already been doing. #MoChat9:09 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

From the videos I’ve seen, cineware is going to change almost every motion designer workflow! #mochat9:09 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Will C4D Linear workflow work when rendered inside AE? #mochat9:09 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

haha that’s awesome. I missed that. Was that at NAB? #mochat9:09 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Will we see the physical renderer integrated in the future? #AE #mochat9:10 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

RT : From the pt of view, connecting with #AE was a just a natural extension of what we have already been doing. #mochat9:10 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

One thing I haven’t seen covered: How can we leverage NET render/farms with Cineware? #mochat9:10 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Is there room to use other render engines like Vray run through Cineware? #mochat9:10 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Will we have linear workflow carry from c4D to Ae? #mochat9:10 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Yes. Ae is not linear by default, C4D is. You just change your comp setting to linearize #mochat9:10 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

He mentioned it in his presentation, yes. I tested the AE/Premiere side of it today and that works too (w/ reloading). #mochat9:11 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

RT Cineware can render most anything from Cinema4D (some baking required) – Cinema4D Lite is separate #mochat9:11 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

+1 on this. Troubled by this possible issue. #mochat9:11 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

#mochat one random ques: is there a plan (or option in Cineware) to match World Centers? C4D uses 0,0,0 and AE doesn’t. Any thoughts?9:11 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Great! RT : Yes. Ae is not linear by default, C4D is. You just change your comp setting to linearize #mochat9:11 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Had to start with software first. Good feature request though. #mochat9:11 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

RT : One thing I haven’t seen covered: How can we leverage NET render/farms with Cineware? #mochat9:11 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

#C4D Lite is based on Prime minus the polygonal tools, CA tools and some generators. If users register they get some MoGraph tools. #MoChat9:11 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

what about complex scenes? How well does cineware handle lots of polygons and GI ? #mochat9:12 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

To go further with this thought, are there any plugins or other engines that cause trouble with cross over?#mochat9:12 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

今、 #mochat というハッシュタグで、AeとC4Dについて、AdobeのプロダクトマネージャとMAXONのCEOによるリアルタイム質問を行ってます!9:12 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

yeah. well, he talked about it at nab but did it in chicago i think #mochat9:12 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Nice, I missed almost all NAB presentations. Haven’t had the chance to go back and look. I’m pumped for it! #mochat9:12 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Heya Paul see you made it back safely.. 8) #mochat9:13 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

A huge feature request for Ae in this department. You can use ‘centered comp camera’ which does the math #mochat9:13 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Still giggling from the #inception-like possibilities of #cineware and AE to Pr dynamic link. #mochat9:13 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Is Cineware multithreaded in AE so I get the most power from my Z820? #mochat9:14 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

I wonder as well. How Particular (or any trapcode) might work. Curious. #mochat9:14 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

That works. I was just thinking in terms of creating new assets in either C4D/AE. Not so much the camera. Works though 🙂 #mochat9:14 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

anyone that was at NAB knows my brain is a 1.0 version lol #mochat9:51 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

like my kid. Sienzant 2.0 will be much more prepared in life. #mochat9:51 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

But we want it to do everything! NOW! #Cineware #mochat9:51 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Will multiple layers of the same C4D file be cached properly? So it’s only computed once? #mochat9:51 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

im putting in a feature request to link up to my dishwasher. i hate doing dishes. #Cineware #mochat9:52 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

And alas – that would never actually ship. #mochat9:52 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Yes. Very important to realize, this is V1. What our programmers have accomplished is amazing in the time they had. #MoChat9:52 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Okay cool 🙂 #mochat9:52 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Yes. It is completely supported via the performance cache. more details on http://t.co/yzJ9r82rNs #mochat9:52 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

I must have missed this but hair and cloth not supported? or just need to be baked #mochat9:52 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

RT : Yes. Very important to realize, this is V1. What our programmers have accomplished is amazing in the time they had. #mochat9:53 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Brings up a relevant point. How long ago did this work officially start? () #mochat9:53 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Curious… how much time was put into this. Generally? A year? Half a year? A week before NAB? #mochat9:53 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

cool #mochat9:53 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

RT : we’re not worthy 🙂 #mochat9:53 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

+1 RT : steal c4d’s implementation of f-curves/timeline #mochat9:53 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Seemed to at NAB, even when using the same layer in different comps / precomps. #mochat9:53 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Yep. #mochat9:53 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

How’s the “other scripting changes” post coming along? Really looking forward to that. #mochat9:54 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Hair and Cloth are supported. Baking will make it play back faster but not necessary. #MoChat9:54 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

This began right after CS6 #mochat9:54 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Im interested in whats achievable with C4D and the layer system, should be interesting. #mochat9:54 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

I’m assuming, like everything, it was 2 days before NAB. #mochat9:54 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Sorry if this was answered (Im late!). How about particles in 3d space (either form AE or C4D) #mochat9:54 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Hair and cloth supported… excellent! #mochat9:54 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

That’s awesome. No rest for the weary, huh? #mochat9:54 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

how about the character system/motion clips/etc etc? or was that covered already? #MoChat9:55 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

It’ll probably go up next week. Gotta get through detailed posts for the headline features first. #mochat9:55 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

seriously all i hope is and make the roto brush not completly useless in the next ae #mochat9:55 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Me too! I’d love more details. #mochat9:55 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Any Xpresso implementation in AE possible? #mochat9:55 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

So are hard and soft bodies are supported? #mochat9:55 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

RT : Hmm, it will be tough to go back to CPU rendering after getting cozy with #Element3D #mochat9:55 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

What about ’em? There are workarounds to get E3D working with Particular, I’m sure same techniques would work here. #mochat9:55 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

About 5 minutes left. Let’s start wrapping up questions before giving final word to & folks. #mochat9:56 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Did you see the refine edge tool? Big change to rotobrush #mochat9:56 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Particles are definitely achievable in #C4D. Using our layers in #AE could give you some great results. #MoChat9:56 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

It speeds everything up, since it makes the cache _fast_. (Yes, the new caching system is used for Cineware.) #mochat9:56 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Or use keying first. Any way you make a matte. Then Refine Edge tool. #mochat9:57 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

amazing. I really have to invest in one of those I guess 😉 #mochat9:58 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

wanted it today RT : yep saw it at NAB… get your rotobrush work done first then make magic w refine edge tool. #mochat9:58 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

not yet. Big priority though. #mochat9:58 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

You must have missed the Refine Edge addition to RotoBrush #mochat9:58 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Alright folks. Let’s let & get any final words in on Cineware. #mochat9:58 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

ahh good to know.. #mochat9:58 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Refine Edge is mind-blowing. Can’t wait. #mochat9:58 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Sure, but when it comes to particles and other complex scenes, real spatial interaction would be nice. #mochat9:58 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Are identical Cineware layers rendered multiple times or just once using an instanced buffer? #mochat9:59 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

Possible for realtime DOF via AE’s camera? 🙂 #mochat9:59 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013

can you have a 3d coordinate grid in AE without bringing in a c4d layer into the scene? #mochat9:59 PM EDT Apr 16th, 2013
