FRIEDRICHSDORF, GERMANY — Maxon is pleased to announce that the latest release of Adobe After Effects includes an updated version of Maxon’s Cinema 4D Lite.
Based on the company’s Cinema 4D Release S24, the software is available immediately for download to Adobe Creative Cloud members. Along with compatibility and workflow enhancements, this latest version includes the Asset Browser that features ready-to-use and animate 3D models, materials and other assets. This latest update symbolizes the ongoing collaboration between Maxon and Adobe to deliver improved integration and performance between Maxon’s powerful 3D application, Cinema 4D, and Adobe After Effects, the industry-standard motion graphics and visual effects software.
Artists can use Cinema 4D Lite to create and import 3D content into their After Effects projects. Cinema 4D content can be added to After Effects projects just like footage, and artists can extract scene data, like cameras, 3D objects, object masks, etc., that can be manipulated inside of After Effects. For After Effects users, it’s a great way to explore the exciting world of 3D motion graphics for free – including basic modeling, texturing, lighting and animation.
Along with compatibility and workflow enhancements, added features in Cinema 4D Lite S24 include the new Asset Browser making it easy for artists to easily browse and obtain 3D models, materials and other assets. A library of assets has been specifically curated and made available to Cinema 4D Lite users. Assets are organized with rich metadata and keywords and are downloaded and cached locally on demand.
The latest release of Cinema 4D Lite can be launched within After Effects and independently as a standalone application. And, since Cinema 4D Lite utilizes Maxon’s new entitlement system users can instantly upgrade to the full commercial version at any time directly from within Cinema 4D.
