Creating and Saving Layouts 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 and location of menus are a little different.  In this short series of tips, I'll try to make a connection to C4D from AE.  With the new releases of CINEMA 4D, it is even easier for Adobe After Effects users to create their own 3D animations and incorporate them into their composites and animations.

THIS LESSON:  In After Effects 7.0 the workspace editorial became much easier to manage.  Panes and panels within the application can be moved around quickly and effortlessly to create a custom workspace, or several different workspaces that are custom tailored to the way you work.  CINEMA 4D allows you to do the same - saving layouts that match not only the way you work, but can be quickly shifted to pair with the task you may need to perform.

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.
