MAXON Announces CINEMA 4D Release 14
MAXON unveiled CINEMA 4D Release 14, (R14) a milestone release of the industry-leading 3D motion graphics, visual effects, painting, and rendering software application. Leveraging more than two decades of 3D graphics programming innovation, R14 delivers breakthrough performance including a new, fully integrated sculpting system, camera matching functionality, exchange plugins to two key applications – The Foundry NUKE and Adobe Photoshop Extended – and improved integration with Adobe After Effects. Motion graphics/VFX artists and visualization designers will benefit from features that accelerate productivity to produce spectacular 3D content more fluidly and collaborate with increased efficiency.
CINEMA 4D Release 14 Highlights:
The following is a brief overview of the over 200 productivity-boosting features in CINEMA 4D R14, available for both Mac OS X and Windows.
- Digital Sculpting: Dynamic sculpting tools give artists complete control to create finely detailed models. A powerful layer system offers maximum flexibility. Complex sculpted objects can be “baked” into displacement and normal maps applied to low-poly meshes for efficiency.
- Camera Enhancements: The Camera Calibrator offers an integrated solution to match 3D camera images to a 3D environment – ideal for architects and matte artists. The Motion Camera, Morph Camera and Camera Composition Helper quickly frame a 3D scene following well-established composition rules. The Camera Focus Picker allows users to interactively set focal distances.
- Integration: Seamless integration with The Foundry’s NUKE compositing application allows direct export to a NUKE project with multi-pass layers, including full support for OpenEXR and FBX files. The Photoshop Extended exchange plug-in enables opening and manipulating CINEMA 4D scenes into a Photoshop 3D layer. Enhanced integration with After Effects brings new levels of performance to directly import and export native CINEMA 4D files.
