    "Play" video on a 3d object?

      Hi there,


      I’m new to After Effects. I understand that you can create 3D objects in Cinema 4D Lite then import them into After Effects, right? I thought that you could do the same with Photoshop 3D layers, but after having spent an hour creating a 3D layer in Photoshop with the right objects I then found out that I could not bring it into After Effects as anything other than a flattened 2D image. So, just wondering if you can indeed grab stuff from Cinema 4D Lite.


      My question, though, is this: can I create a 3D object in Cinema 4D Lite, bring it into an After Effects composition, import a movie into the same composition and then "play" the movie on the 3D Object? For example, can I create a TV in Cinema 4D lite, bring it into After Effects, then import a movie and make the movie "play" on the TV?


      If I've got it all backwards, what would be a better way to go about it?


      Thanks a million.
