    Has anyone had success with OPEN EXR channels out of Cinema 4d?

    I looked around here for direction, but I can’t seem to find any. It seems like a good option to use that format in our pipeline because of how much data you can cram into an image, and now have to sift through tons of different channel sequences.

    Just wanted to throw in my two cents:

    1 – Make sure C4D is set to “Multi-Layer File” in the Multi-Pass settings in your render settings

    2 – If using After Effects, remember that AE does not support multi-layer EXR files natively. I believe that there is a free plugin online that will do this for you, and I think that Stu Maschewitz wrote something about it somewhere… try checking this out:

    Hope this helps…
