Joren Kandel at The Pixel Lab has a tutorial that shows how he animates the Z-Depth pass transition in After Effects. The effect creates a black and white image with color wiping in over the Z-Depth channel. He explains how to output the Z-Depth pass from Cinema 4D with both the physical renderer and Octane Render, and brings it into After Effects.
