As part of the alliance, both companies are expected to collaborate and engineer a pipeline between Adobe After Effects and Maxon Cinema 4D to give users a seamless 2D/3D foundation.
"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."
