Hi - great job on the C4Ds so far, I’ll likely start buying them soon here.
Quick questions (I’ve googled it, lots of different answers everywhere);
a) I prefer to just render C4D source out by itself, and do any ae work separately w/alpha;
What’s your recommended render output format, for use in web videos about 1024 wide? I’ve found when rendering to .mov if the pc locks up I lose the entire render (happened today, after a 6 hour start, win7 locked, had to reboot, lost the mov); many C4d folks recommend exporting instead to .tga or .tiff (or png) image sequences, then importing those (to nle or ae or whatever); seems safer since at least you’ve got the frames captured/rendered up to whatever time the pc locks/reboots - any suggestions?
b) is vray highly recommended or no, for C4D 11.5? (I’m using my new win7 install w/4gigs ram)
c) general quick workflow tips for your guys’ projects in using them w/AE? I’d just as soon render whatever C4d element by itself, then put in my NLE on one video timeline, then do the aep render separate w/alpha mov, and add that to a second timeline nle, since I do all my final video production in my nle (vegas 10), not ae.
thanks, everyone - great to see c4ds here, let’s hope they sell a lot and it takes off!
