I'm using Cinema 4D to create a 3d object and then import it into AE CC. When I import it in, the grey grid in the background is visible. I want to make the background transparent, so that all you can see is the object in AE. How can I do this?
This is not a matter of transparency. You are seeing what you are seeing because you are looking at the draft software rendering result.
Choose Standard (Final) from the Renderer menu in the Cineware effect.
