Join the Maxon Training Team as Elly, Darrin and Chad help you integrate 3D in your After Effects projects. The techniques in these sessions are suitable for a wide range of applications, from indie artists and multidisciplinary teams to editors and motion graphics designers.

We’ll share essential 3D workflows in Cinema 4D Lite, including importing 3D camera data into After Effects, compositing 3D passes and layers to take full control of your render results, and adding eye-catching animation using Cinema 4D’s MoGraph toolset, as well as demonstrating workflows between Lite and the full version of Cinema 4D, including the main differences between them.
