How not to lose your current presets when you upgrade
By Chris and Trish Meyer | September 30, 2014
Adobe pre-announced many of the new features for the next version of After Effects CC 2014 at the just-passed IBC show. One of the big additions will be upgrading Cineware and Cinema 4D Lite - the 3D modeling and animation program that comes bundled with After Effects CC - to version 2.0, based on Maxon’s Cinema 4D R16 (Cinema 4D Lite is based on R14).
This is mostly great news, as this means a ton of new features for us After Effects CC users (see the series of movies Maxon posted on their Cineversity site for R15 and R16). However, some of these updates have obsoleted older features, which in turn means some of the currently provided factory presets for C4D Lite may be lost. Read on to learn how to proactively set these aside so you can still access them when the next update indeed happens.
