Apparently, we are not allowed to advertise Cinema 4d included models, when uploading a product under the AE Project File tab. I’m unsure of the reason, but the two have such an advanced symbiotic relationship, that it seems rather bizarre.

Are there any plans to include a secondary After Effects tab that can include C4D files?

Hybrid projects go in the Cinema 4D category.

Where did you hear the rule about not being allowed to include models?

Hi felt,

Thanks, I’ll upload to the cinema 4d category for future projects. To rephrase, not that Cinema 4d files are not allowed in the file download, but that if your download is placed under AE project files, you are not allowed to advertise them (as bonus 3d models that come included)

Really? I didn’t know that. It’s actually rather essential with Element 3D projects.

That’s weird. I had no problems with that. My latest project is done with Cinema 4D, so I included C4D version along with AE version and “advertised” is in video preview and in description, that C4D file IS included in main download. Project is in AE section, not Cinema 4D.

This isn’t allowed. I can confirm. Reviewers don’t accept projects where C4D files inside zip. Count yourself as lucky guy :) We can advertise, but cant include it inside zip file.

Well, there’s going to need to be at least an obj file or two present once Element 3D files are being accepted.

Various other already accepted plug-ins, such as Trapcode Form and Plexus might require .obj files to be distributed with the Ae project.

If this is a rule, I’d like to know why.

There appears to be a misunderstanding here…

Authors ARE allowed to include bonus content with their projects. HOWEVER , we no longer allow any advertising of that bonus content in the previews or item descriptions.

Why, you ask? Because only the main AE project and supporting files are reviewed for errors and such, not the bonus content. Therefore, we can’t guarantee the quality or integrity of the bonus content.

Additionally, felt is correct. If you plan to upload a project that includes C4D content that needs to be edited or is an integral part of the project, it should be submitted to the C4D queue, not the AE queue.

Hope that clears things up a bit!

Would be nice if you COULD advertise the bonus content, just not include that in the final price, buyers would only be purchasing the meat.

But then, I suppose that does somewhat pose a problem if a buyer is purchasing a product just for the extra goodies, and ends up with crud.

In the case of uploading a C4D project, the AE content wouldn’t be considered “bonus” content, since the 3D renders would need to be composited.

We understand that there’s a bit of a gray area here, but if you ever have any questions, just contact support or ask a question in the forums before submitting your project to the queue. That way you might eliminate any surprises during the review process.
