CINEMA 4D Prescribed for Medical Illustrators

MAXON will be making a big splash next week at the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) annual conference, to be held July 29 ‘ August 1 in Richmond, Virginia. The software gurus will act as Educational Corporate Sponsors for the event’s ‘Techniques Showcase,’ which will demonstrate the benefits of 3D imaging technology’including MAXON’s acclaimed modeling and animation software CINEMA 4D’in the medical community in quickly and easily creating imagery of complex medical and biological information.

‘As medical illustrators increasingly turn to technology to visualize complicated medical concepts and processes, we are pleased about CINEMA 4D’s leading role in helping artists more easily create an exciting range of 3D imagery that has the potential to educate and communicate to broad audiences,’ MAXON president Paul Babb. ‘Users of 3D animation tools constantly seek the latest information and technical understanding of today’s available software packages and MAXON remains committed to helping artists from all disciplines maximize their creative potential by providing instruction on some of the industry’s most advanced animation techniques and methods.’

As part of the Showcase, MAXON is sponsoring a presentation by medical animator Nobles Green II (Nucleus Medical Art): ‘Creating and Animating Ciliated Cells with CINEMA 4D’s HAIR Module and MoGraph’, which will focus on the software’s intuitive workflow and integrated modules in the context of depicting cell surface organelles; as well as a ‘Painting Texture Maps onto 3D Models in Photoshop CS4 and Importing them into CINEMA 4D’ workshop with 3D design demo by medical illustrator Fabian de Kok-Mercado (Battelle Memorial Institute / National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases).
