Problem with Edit on Tutorial

Our tutorial showing how to use object buffers and external compositing tags in Cinema 4D to add particles in After Effects had a slight glitch. Apparently during the editing, a key section was left out. We have finally gotten around to fixing it and updating the tutorial. Our apologies…we try our best to keep that from happening.

Please check out the updated tutorial.
