Using After Effects' tilde key in CINEMA 4D By Ko Maruyama
As an After Effects user and CINEMA 4D user, I note that there are many similarities between the programs.  Unfortunately their naming conventions are different.  In this short series of tips, I'll try to make a connection to C4D from AE.  THIS LESSON: Taking advantage of the FULLSCREEN mode, and changing the hotkey to tilde (~) just like After Effects 7.

THIS LESSON:  In After Effects 7.0 and higher, you can open the individual work windows (panes) to fill your workspace.  Similarly, in MAXON's CINEMA 4D, you can open up individual windows of the application to take up the entire screen, and collapse them back into a smaller space in the currently active workspace.

This isn't a basics primer.  Instead, it's just a "heads up" when you want to find something in CINEMA 4D that you're already familiar with in Adobe's After Effects.
