MAXON Announces Participation at Adobe MAX, October 6 – 8, 2014

Presentations from Creative Professionals Rick Barrett and Chris Meyer to Illustrate Techniques in MAXON Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects CC to Maximize 3D Creativity

Newbury Park, CA – October 6, 2014  – MAXON, leading developer of professional 3D modeling, painting, animation and rendering software solutions, is pleased to participate and sponsor Adobe MAX, taking place October 6 -7, 2014, in Los Angeles. The annual event, billed as ‘The Creativity Conference,” is held by Adobe Systems to explore the “intersection of creativity and technology” bringing together sessions, speakers and workshops centered around the latest Adobe releases to help users build “…great creative experiences”.

In 2013, MAXON entered into a strategic alliance with Adobe Systems aimed at delivering 3D technologies directly within Adobe® After Effects® CC. This resulted in CINEWARE, a ‘live’ 3D pipeline between CINEMA 4D and After Effects that benefits creative professionals with a streamlined workflow to open, edit and enhance Cinema 4D project files inside After Effects, and CINEMA 4D Lite, a limited, yet feature-rich, version of the software that launches directly from the application. With the release last month of MAXON Cinema 4D R16 — the latest version of the company’s powerful 3D application — upgrades to CINEWARE and Cinema 4D Lite are now available in the latest version of After Effects CC  for improved integration and performance.

During Adobe MAX, Rick Barrett, VP Operations at MAXON US and Chris Meyer, a principal at Crish Design, renowned After Effects and Cinema 4D expert, motion graphic designer and author of After Effects books, will lead sessions that focus on how to leverage Cinema 4D and After Effects to maximize workflow and creative productivity.
