Hello. I've got an error when I'm trying to open a file in After Effects from Cinema 4d.
1. Opening After Effects, creating a new project. Layer-new-Maxon Cinema 4d file
2. Opens Cinema 4d, create an object, press "control S" on the keyboard to save it.
3. I go back to After Effects, in the "project" window choose my project from Cinema, make a precomposition. I'm waiting.
4. After a long wait for the download, an error window pops up (attached a screenshot with this error bellow)Annotation 2020-09-06 121313.png

5. How to solve the problem? 

I'm using Widows 10 and AE 17.1.3 and Cinema 4D lite (22.123)

Thank you!

RESOLVED! I finally resolved the issue. What it took was for me to fully unintsall C4D Lite (and Adobe After FX) and reinstall both. Took hours to figure this out but not I'm back to getting the good stuff done!

I've come across the same error after my C4D Lite updated. My work today is 'dead' until I resolve it. I have been trying for hours to resolve this issue with no luck so far. I even went as far as to uninstall and reinstall AE with no luck.


I have reached out to Maxon requesting help with this issue. If I have a positive result I will follow-up on this thread. If anyone else has resolved this issue please post.

or other way asked: How did you reinstall C4D Lite, as far as I know there is no installer for that?

It installs with After Effects. When you uninstall AE, it should uninstall C4D Lite too.

Hi all. My apologies for the delayed response as it has been one of "those" kind of days. In this post I am going to try to respond to mutliple posts. Please note that my experiences and suggestions are from a app user's perspective. I am not necessarily a replacement for customers service, etc.

arnem55527142 asks: "i reinstalled after effects without luck. Do you know if I can deinstall C4D and than reinstall the package from their homepage and "lite" will automatically work than?"

I would suggest unintsalling both Adobe AE and Maxon Cinema 4D Lite (different app folders) as one remedy. I do not believe that reinstalling AE, alone, will remove the previous C4D Lite installation. Removing both apps will result in removing/reinstalling both. I do not have the experience to comment on reinstalling C4D from their site and "lite" automatically working. You can, however, reach out to Maxon and see if they can provide you a direct download for "lite" which, when manually installed, will overwrite whatever version of C4D Lite you have installed. This last option will better ensure that you have the most recent C4D Lite update that matches your needs.

Szalam, who is a Adobe Community Professional, writes: "It (C4D Lite) installs with After Effects. When you uninstall AE, it should uninstall C4D Lite too."

This was my initial experience. However, when I uninstalled/reinstalled AE it kept my most recent version of C4D Lite which was causing the experienced error. When I separately deleted C4D Lite (via my OS add/remove apps) and AE I then got a "clean" install of C4D Lite when I reinstalled AE. This "clean" installation of C4D Lite (included in the AE installation) no longer resulted in the error message on this thread.

Glad to have possibly been of help to Дарья5E88 and hope that healthedsamurai and arnem55527142 and others find resolution of this issue.
