I spent like about 2 hours making an intro on Cinema 4d r13, i finished, rendered it, and tried to throw in my .aec file into After Effects CS6 and it said something like the file was unsupported or something like that! I immediately panicked and i started downloading some files on the maxon website but those didn't work! I spent a good 3 hours searching through tutorials and videos but they never helped me because i didn't have a folder called "Exchange Plugins". Is there anything i can do to solve this problem?
Beyond "use the right AEC plug-in" there's really not much more to it. The rest we cannot know. You have not provided any useful information like system info, exact version info for C4D, AE and the plug-ins. A missing exchange plug-ins folder already sounds fishy...
What do you mean by fishy? And i would show you my info but i don't know how '-'
The Exchange plugins should be in your MAXON install. You should be able to drag those into your AE plugins folder. Then, once you restart AE, it should work.
