FRIEDRICHSDORF, GERMANY — Maxon (www.maxon.net) has released new features for Cineware for Adobe After Effects CC. Version 3.1 increases functionality and improves workflow. Animated text and shape layers can now be saved directly into the .c4d file format using the Cinema 4D Exporter command. Artists can customize exported elements in Cinema 4D, save the changes, and see them update live in After Effects CC via Cineware.
After Effects users who do not own a commercial license of Cinema 4D but are interested in exploring 3D content creation as a part of their workflow still have access to Cinema 4D Lite, a light yet feature-rich version of the Cinema 4D toolset that launches directly from within After Effects CC. This enhanced integration between After Effects CC and Cinema 4D is available immediately to Adobe Creative Cloud members.
