Silverwing covered the basics to get you understanding and started with a 32-bit EXR workflow with Octane, C4D, and Ae.

You don’t need a 32-bit workflow, but it does solve a lot of problems if you jump between 3D, rendering engines, and compositing apps. There is a lot of mystery behind the EXR or 32-bit pipeline, simple because it can get technical.

The Fundamentals of 32bit or “Float” Workflows.

A new tutorial from Silverwing (Raphael Rau) covers everything you need to know to get you started. 

“Since everyone was eager to learn about the 32bit Workflow in the latest Twitter poll, I upload this video,” Rau says. The tutorial goes over the fundamentals of 32bit or “float” image generation in rendering (Octane) and the compositing Process (AfterEffects).
