what isthe easiest way to export paths from aftereffects to c4d?
Not easy … but here’s a tut from c4d cafe.
Copy and paste the mask into Illustrator and save it from there as Illustrator version 8, which should then import into C4D.
If you have the Cineversity plugins you can use CV Artsmart to copy and paste between illustrator and C4D. Would be nice if CV Artsmart also worked with after effects…
