New iPhone and iPad Pro app uses Apple AR-Toolkit to facilitate facial and body motion capture for Cinema 4D.
FRIEDRICHSDORF, GERMANY – Maxon, the developer of professional 3D software solutions, has announced the release of Moves by Maxon for the Apple App Store. Today’s news follows on the success of Cineversity‘s facial capture app, CV-AR. Moves by Maxon capitalizes on the emerging technology of Apple's AR-Toolkit, which enables users to capture facial motion and whole body movement; artists can easily bring motion sequences into Cinema 4D with limited technical effort.
The facial capturing app Cineversity CV-AR is still available as a separate product on the Apple App Store. However, designers who want full body motion capture are now able to use Moves by Maxon, an application that combines both technologies. Moves by Maxon is immediately available from the Apple App Store and is compatible with iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPad Pro (3rd Generation).
A separate plugin is required to transfer the captured data from your Apple device to Cinema 4D and can be downloaded for free from the Cineversity website. This plugin is only compatible with the latest version of Cinema 4D - Release 21, or later. Cineversity also provides an overview video, installation instructions and basic instructions of use tutorials.
