Using a combination of CINEMA 4D and After Effects we will simulate water surfaces.

This tutorial looks at a method of transferring position data from CINEMA 4D into Adobe After Effects for use as an effect point. In After Effects you will generate a displacement map. This displacement map is then used with sub-polygon displacement to simulate the surface of liquids.

In this, part one of a two part tutorial, you transfer the data to After Effects and generate the displacement map.
