This tutorial explains how to use CINEWARE proxy to speed up the live 3d pipeline between After Effects CC and Cinema 4D.

When working with Cinema 4D and After Effects, in general you have two options.
1)render files from Cinema 4D and import them into After Effects
2) use the new 3D live pipeline to render C4D projects as layers inside After Effects
While the latter is convenient, it can get slow if you projects are complex.
With CINEWARE proxy, you get the best of both worlds: Simply toggle back and forth between the live 3d pipeline and rendered proxy files.
You can, for example, start working with the live pipeline and render proxy files in the background. Once the background rendering is done, you switch from the live pipeline to the rendered files and
all modifications you did in the meantime are preserved.
Whenever you need to modify your Cinema 4D project, you can switch back to the live pipeline or update your proxies to see the changes in After Effects.
