While trying to render a scene in after effects that i created in cinema 4d of a bar (bear in mind, bars have lots of transparent glass and liquids in them) i get the 'unable to write file' render error. in cinema 4d lite, in my render settings, when i turn off transparency, refraction, reflection, and shadows, the render works. what should i do in order to render in after effects and keep all of my transparency, refraction, reflection, and shadow detail?
REnder to an image sequence. Your Quicktime connection is simply timing out because it takes too long to render a frame. No serious 3D artist would ever render to clip formats directly, anyway.
