Hi, I'm trying to import an animated object from Cinema 4D lite into After Effects but with a transparent background. Does anyone have any ideas? I couldn't see any png in the render settings in C4Dlite.

Thanks if you can help

What are the actual settings in the C4D file? What's going on in there? From the looks of your screenshot there's definiutely some sort of floor or background object that's obstructing the view and thus nixes the transparency.

Thanks Mylenium, you've tipped me in the right direction. I had left the floor plane in, removed it now and has fixed the problem.
