MAXON Announces Tighter Integration and Performance Enhancements to the CINEWARE “Live 3D Pipeline" in the latest version of Adobe After Effects CC

Many Feature Improvements in MAXON CINEMA 4D R15 Are Also Available in After Effects CC for Exceptional 3D Motion Graphics and VFX Workflow

November 4, 2013 - FRIEDRICHSDORF, Germany-- MAXON, the leading developer of professional 3D modeling, painting, animation and rendering solutions, today announced upgrades to MAXON CINEWARE, now available in the latest version of Adobe After Effects CC. The enhancements symbolize the ongoing strategic relationship between MAXON and Adobe to deliver improved integration and performance between MAXON’s powerful 3D application, CINEMA 4D, and Adobe’s industry leading software.

Since the June introduction of Adobe After Effects CC, creative professionals have benefitted from the seamless integration provided by CINEWARE that establishes a bridge between the two applications and allows users to open any 3D file that CINEMA 4D supports directly in After Effects that can be edited and enhanced using the “Live 3D pipeline.” Compositing passes can also be selected directly in After Effects for editing, even by users who are new to 3D. This version of After Effects CC also debuted CINEMA 4D Lite, a limited, yet feature-rich version of CINEMA 4D integrated within After Effects that gives artists access to an exceptional selection of the software’s functionality. [Editors’ Note: See related press release here.]

The new updates to the CINEWARE workflow, available in After Effects CC, are designed to optimize performance and enhance creative capabilities in the video workflow. Last month, MAXON introduced CINEMA 4D Release 15 (R15) marked by powerful enhancements to modeling, text creation, rendering and sculpting. Access to many of the new capabilities in R15 are also available in the latest version of After Effects CC.

Updates to CINEWARE include:

Options Dialog Box New settings are available in the CINEWARE Options Dialog Box allowing users to select which version of CINEMA 4D (R14 or later) should be started automatically. This is especially beneficial to users who have fully-featured versions of CINEMA 4D Studio or CINEMA 4D Broadcast installed so that they can select the preferred CINEMA 4D software version of choice more easily.

Rendering Enhancements – New rendering capabilities are available in the After Effects CC CINEWARE viewport for users who choose to use an edition of CINEMA 4D other than CINEMA 4D Lite including the Physical Renderer.

MAXON's Physical Renderer gives artists real-world camera functions for added cinematic and creative possibilities. It works with Intel's highly optimized Embree Raytracing Engine, for rendering speed improvements without compromising image quality.

CINEMA 4D Upgrade Path

For After Effects CC users wishing to experience the more powerful versions of CINEMA 4D beyond CINEMA 4D Lite, MAXON offers an attractive upgrade path to CINEMA 4D R15 for an even richer 3D content creation experience. Additional information is available on the CINEMA 4D Broadcast and CINEMA 4D Studio pages.
