Cinema 4D Lite, ver 26, Material Texture not showing in camera view

Hello all,


I brought in an Illustrator file with their specific colors that don't import, which I was told is part of the "Lite" version. That it won't bring in the colors from the Illustrator file. But when I add my own jpg texture to the preset studio backdrop, it doesn't show in the camera viewport. It shows in the material editor and renders, but that backdrop remains white in the viewport. I would like to see it in the viewport as reference. Also, I'm trying to flip the texture as it is showing the text on it backwards. I come from 3DS Max and it is a little more cut and dry with max.


Also, once I've created my scene in CD4 I was wondering if it is possible to bring each object with camera into AE after for tweaking. I tried and it only brings the camera in, not separate objects. I'm sure I will have to breakdown and pay for the full version at some point.


I'm doing a crash course in CD4 basics as I am on a deadline to get this done. 😞


Thank you 🙂
