MAXON, developer of 3D animation software CINEMA 4D, has announced it has entered into a strategic alliance with Adobe Systems Inc. to collaborate on technology for creatives in the motion graphics and vfx industry. As part of the venture, both companies will collaborate and engineer a pipeline between Adobe After Effects software and CINEMA 4D to provide users with a seamless 2D/3D foundation.
“CINEMA 4D is a leading 3D solution, and the one After Effects users have come to know and love because of its ease-of-use, speed, stability and especially tight integration with the 2D compositing application,” said Harald Egel, co-founder and CEO, MAXON Computer GmbH. “We look forward to continued collaboration between our programming and marketing teams to ensure that the interoperability of our software products makes a positive impact on artists seeking to easily and fully integrate 3D into their production pipelines.”
“Adobe After Effects has a 20-year history of setting the standard for motion graphics and visual effects software,” said Steve Forde, senior product manager for After Effects at Adobe. “Collaborating with a market leader in 3D graphics programming like MAXON will further accelerate how After Effects users create rich engaging experiences.”
