MAXON Announces Update to Cineware for Adobe After Effects CC

Animated text and shape layers can now be saved directly to Cinema 4D for a roundtrip live 3D motion graphics workflow.

FRIEDRICHSDORF, GERMANY -- MAXON has announced the release of additional features for Cineware (3.1) for Adobe After Effects CC demonstrating its ongoing efforts to increase functionality and improve workflow. Animated text and shape layers can now be saved directly into the .c4d file format using the MAXON Cinema 4D Exporter command. Artists can customize exported elements in Cinema 4D (Cinema 4D Lite is included with After Effects CC), save the changes, and see them update live in After Effects CC via CINEWARE.

"It's exciting to see Adobe and Maxon continue to simplify the creative process so artists can create cutting edge visuals more easily,” commented Thanassis Pozantzis, creative director and owner of Noseman Productions. "These types of improvements to workflow have a tremendous impact on my ability to meet client expectations and deadlines."

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.
