    AEGP Plugin CINEWARE SceneLayer: CINERENDER - Connection failure (5027 :: 12)


      Hi everyone,

      I'm getting this error every time I try to open a new C4D Lite file, and AE crashes when I close the error. I've researched the issue on these forums and elsewhere. I've tried changing the CINEWARE port to 5027. I've restarted and purged my memory and disc cache.


      I'm able to import .c4d files, but all they show is a black screen.


      I have C4D R16 installed, but it's a server license that can only be used when I'm physically at work. I'd like to be able to use C4D Lite when I'm at home. Based on suggestions I found on Creative Cow, I've changed the name of the Maxon application folder to try to force AE to use C4D Lite.


      Would love it if anyone has insights that would help.
