01/29/2016 – MAXON today announced a new update to Cineware (3.0) for the latest version of Adobe® After Effects® CC, a key component of Adobe Creative Cloud®. The Cineware Live 3D pipeline first introduced in After Effects CC offers improved workflow and greater performance. OpenGL rendering is now available within the Cineware effect, providing increased speed and higher quality results than the software render option. Users can now choose to automatically sync the After Effects and Cinema 4D time sliders. The new Cinema 4D Take System, introduced in R17, the latest Cinema 4D release, is also supported: After Effects artists can now choose to render specific Takes in a Cinema 4D project file.
“We appreciate the tremendous value that MAXON adds for After Effects users around the world,” said Sue Skidmore, partner relations for Adobe professional video. “The latest update to Cineware for After Effects CC gives motion graphics and visual effects artists greater workflow flexibility and improved Live 3D Pipeline performance.”
After Effects users who do not own a commercial license of Cinema 4D but are interested in exploring 3D content creation as a part of their workflow still have access to Cinema 4D Lite, a light yet feature-rich version of the Cinema 4D toolset that launches directly from within After Effects CC.
This enhanced integration between After Effects and Cinema 4D is available immediately to Adobe Creative Cloud members.
