MAXON Booth Highlights - # SL5624
At its NAB booth, # SL5624, MAXON will showcase the full range of capabilities that CINEMA 4D and BodyPaint 3D software applications play in empowering creative artists to create award winning digital content with an emphasis on solutions for broadcast designers.
Over the past year MAXON has introduced significant new technologies and advancements bringing increased functionality to 3D digital content creators. Last fall, MAXON released CINEMA 4D R11.5, a comprehensive upgrade that provides powerful image quality, rendering and workflow enhancements and offers an updated version of the popular motion graphics module MoGraph 2 – a staple with CINEMA 4D motion graphics artists. The company also introduced the CINEMA 4D Broadcast Edition, geared to broadcast design professionals, that delivers the ultimate 3D motion graphics toolkit to easily create everything from 3D titles and flying logos to abstract effects. “With its rollout of Cinema 4D R11.5 Broadcast Edition, MAXON gives us the Broadcast Extension Kit. What’s so great about that? Well for this user, the fact that I now have hundreds of preset objects and scenes at my disposal is huge. This is perfect for that I-need-this-done-now client. A lot of the preset objects and scenes are pre-animated and highly modifiable, and include camera and lighting,” said David Basulto, producer/director/editor with Clarity Pictures.

In addition, MAXON recently announced a strategic partnership with Tuningchannel to bring the powerful Python programming language to CINEMA 4D for custom functionality and enhanced workflow. In February, MAXON released CINEBENCH Release 11.5, an upgraded version of its essential benchmarking tool providing hardware manufacturers, studios, leading publications and system administrators access to the latest technology to test CPU and graphics card performance.
