How to send 3D Characters from Adobe Fuse to Cinema 4D

When I first got a look at Adobe Fuse, one of my first big questions was - how do you get this into Cinema 4D or After Effects? After you've created a custom 3D character in Adobe Fuse, the other option besides adding it to your CC Library is to upload it to This process lets you add your newly minted 3D character to Mixamo's web app, where it'll auto-rig it, and let you add a variety of Motion Capture animations. Once you have a couple MoCap animations added to your character, you can download it in a variety of formats, such as .fbx or .dae. From there you can open it up in Cinema 4D, and take it from there!

Adobe Fuse is a new 3D character creator app, part of Adobe Creative Cloud. With it you can build out a custom 3D character using an intelligent UI, and then either bring your newly created character into Photoshop CC, or upload it to Mixamo's where you can add MoCap data and Download workable 3D files in a variety of formats.
