This is a feature length tutorial on Advanced Multi-pass Compositing with Cinema 4D and Blackmagic Fusion. There’s a ton of material covering how to set up your render passes in Cinema 4D to working with them in Fusion 5.
I really hope that you enjoy this tutorial. I put a lot of work into making everything as simple and easy to understand, so it should get you really rocking with multi-pass renders. Even though I do the final comp inside of Blackmagic Fusion instead of After Effects, ALL of the concepts can be applied to After Effects as well. Fusion is my compositing tool of choice, and once you see how easy it is to manipulate and play with different passes in Fusion, you might be a convert to the node based workflow!
