    Using Cineware, can After Effects animate a mesh via a Null's transformation?

      So here is my setup and what I would like to do:

       

      • In Cinema 4D, I have a 3D character with an idle loop. I have made this character a child of a Null object that has an external composition tag.
      • In After Effects, I import this .c4d file and extract the data. The Null comes through. So far so good.
      • What I'd then like to be able to do is animate the transformation of the Null layer in After Effects, and have the character moving with it accordingly. At the moment, when I move or rotate the Null layer in After Effects, it doesn't affect the character.

       

      Does anyone know if this is possible?

       

      Many thanks,

      Jamie
