I read multiple places that Cinema 4D's Sketch and Toon renderer would be availible in Cineware and useable in After Effects after the 12.2 update. Still can not get it to work.
New rendering capabilities
When you choose to use an edition of Cinema 4D other than Cinema 4D Lite, you can use new rendering capabilities within Cineware beyond the default renderer, including the Physical renderer and Sketch & Toon. To use the new rendering capabilities, do the following:
- Choose a different renderer to use in Cinema 4D
- Save the .c4d file with the renderer settings.
- The renderer specified in Cinema 4D is the one that will be used by the Cineware effect when the Renderer setting in the effect is Standard (Final).
Found this on http://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/c4d.html
The directions imply changing the renderer in render settings. While this may work for the Physical renderer, Sketch&Toon is not a renderer, but an effect.
I also tried applying tags directly to shape, but to no avail. Would love some help! In the middle of a massive project, and need this to work. Thanks!
Its R14.042 , says I'm currently updated. For AfX I'm using 18.104.22.168, and it is up to date. Thanks for the quick reply. Should it just automatically render Sketch&Toon in Cineware, as long as I have the Renderer set to Standard, the Toon&Sketch effect applied, and everything up to date?
The ability to use plug-ins, et cetera, relies on R15. That's what is meant by this:
"Most effects, including third-party plug-ins, should work within the Cineware effect when you choose to use Cinema 4D R15 (not R14 or the default CineRender) as the renderer for Cineware."
