ok, I have been stuck on this issue for a while. I am trying to follow this tutorial (Making an Animated Title Sequence on Vimeo Video School on Vimeo) but so far, cinema 4D lite restrictions have blocked me big time... No global illumination and sky shading, and there is no way to export to tiff, or any other photo format for that matter. The only way to use cinema 4d lite is thru the cineware plugin, but this in turn does not allow you to select a "parent" for a C4D file (the only format exportable) and the is no option to make the c4d a "child". As far as I know, this is the only way to connect a 3D object from Cinema 4D lite to a null object created in AE. Did anybody experience the same issue? Any solutions?
