Compositing 3D models into live action footage is when things get really serious in the world of Visual Effects. Using Cinema 4D Lite and the Cineware connection in After Effects CC, you can now track and composite 3D models into footage much more easier than ever! In this tutorial I cover how to do the camera tracking in After Effects, send that to Cinema 4D, and then how to light and composite any 3D model into footage, including getting the shadows right!
