Render Once. Not All The Time.
Introducing Cineware proxy
The swell folks over at Mamoworld and aescripts + aeplugins and have released a new script that really improves your Cineware workflow. It’s called Cineware proxy and it speeds up your Cineware workflow by managing your 3D caches and proxies inside of After Effects.
You Take Control
Having a live link to Cinema 4D using Cineware is really amazing. After Effects tries to intelligently cache your renders and does a pretty good job. But sometimes, it will re-render your Cineware layer when you don’t want it to. Cineware proxy changes this. This new script allows YOU to have control over when Cineware updates. Not AE.
Speed Up Your Workflow
First, use Cineware proxy to make a temporary proxy of your 3D render. Then, render that proxy using AE’s Render Queue. Or, even better, use aescripts + aeplugins own Background Renderer to render while you continue to work. When your render is finished, you can then use that proxy as your Cineware layer until YOU tell it to update. This significantly speeds up your compositing and makes for a much more “Real Time” After Effects experience. Then, when you need to make changes or update your Cineware layer, use Cineware proxy to go back to your current C4D file and all the compositing changes you made on the proxy stay on the layer. Pretty cool stuff.
