Cinema 4D Lite & Illustrator Files .ai / .eps

Jul 23, 2013 7:14 PM

I'm trying to import a logo that I've made as an Illustrator file, into the C4D Lite app bundled with After Effects CC.


But I can't make it work.


I don't have the full C4D program, but all the online guidance suggests saving the .ai file as a v8 .eps will produce a file that C4D (full version) can read.


This doesn't seem to work for C4D lite. Is there another way to get the .ai into C4D Lite, or is this something that Adobe/Maxon have held back, to encourage me to fork out for the full version?


Hope somebody can help

    C4D lite does not have all of the editing capabilities of C4D. That's one that is missing. A good option would be to use Blender to create your logo and then export an OBJ file that can be added to a C4D lite project.

    I'm not sure if C4D Lite accepts plug-ins, but there's a great plug-in that accepts native Illustrator CS6 files called CV-ArtSmart. It's only available with a Cineversity subscription.

    C4D Lite doesn't allow plug-ins.
