Motion graphics artist Chris Lavelle shows how you can create a fast workflow between Cinema 4D and After Effects, utilizing Mettle’s FreeForm Pro to create 3D shapes right in Ae.
Chris demonstrates how to makes use Cinema 4D to render out a depth map that can then be used in After Effects with FreeForm Pro. This is one way you are able to make a custom depth map that can be used by FreeForm Pro.
FreeForm Pro is a great solution when you want to stay in After Effects and use the all the tools and effects Ae has to offer. Depending on your requirements, this is a faster workflow, with quick visualization of your final project.
