I should preface this by saying that I'm a beginner with c4d but am more familiar with after effects.
So I'm trying to create an effect of glass breaking in cinema 4d using nitroblast and I want the glass to be completely invisible until an object crashes into it. This works seamlessly in c4d and in its picture viewer. However, once I import the c4d file into AE, the cracks in the glass are visible in the beginning.
So far I've tried:
- clearing the cache and baking in the project settings
- saving the project with assets
- creating a new composition in after effects solely for the c4d file using its settings
I'm sure this is probably a simple fix, but I just can't seem to find a solution
here's a link to the c4d file:
I would have two panes of glass. One with no cracks and one with.
Keyframe the cracked one to go visible in the viewport and render as the other one is keyframed to the opposite. (On the basic tab in your attributes manager in C4D)
Optionally, you could use the Display Tag.
Select Use> Visability, and then animate from 0 to 100% on consecutive keyframes
The Display Tag is quite handy to know
