Friedrichsdorf, Germany – MAXON announced the immediate availability of CINEMA 4D Release 14, the next generation of its industry-leading 3D motion graphics, visual effects, painting, and rendering software application. CINEMA 4D R14 delivers eagerly awaited features including a new, fully integrated sculpting system, new camera matching functionality, the debut of exchange plugins to two key applications – The Foundry NUKE and Adobe Photoshop Extended – improved integration with Adobe After Effects and a huge number of other powerful workflow feature enhancements.
MAXON’s leading 3D painting application, BodyPaint 3D, has also received a major upgrade to R14, which includes many features of its sister product CINEMA 4D R14.

With the addition of the new sculpting tools we can do everything we want all in one application. CINEMA 4D just keeps getting more awesome!"
