Now the Chinaware file inside of AE just looks black. When I edit the C4D file, everything is fine, but inside of after effects, nothing!
I found this on creative cow, and tried it:
Changing the TCP port to 2027 worked for me too, but I also had to purge my memory and disk cache (Edit - Purge - All memory and disk cache), then quit and reopen after effects for the changes to take effect.
But that didn't fix it. Any help would be much appreciated!
