At the MAXON Booth
Last fall, MAXON released CINEMA 4D 12, the next generation of its highly-acclaimed professional 3D software application. The comprehensive CINEMA 4D Release 12 builds on more than two decades of 3D graphics development excellence and boasts dozens of new productivity-enhancing features, including improved rendering, enhanced dynamics, new deformers and superior character animation capabilities to allow digital artists to intuitively and easily create high-end 3D images and animations.

During the past year, MAXON’s CINEMA 4D and BodyPaint 3D were essential assets in digital filmmaking and television production. From the high-tech gadgetry and motion graphics sequences in Iron Man 2 to the historically accurate and inspired exterior set extensions of a bustling seaside boardwalk in Boardwalk Empire, and the visionary underground landscapes in Alice in Wonderland, the company’s 3D solutions continued to help artists create many of the year’s most acclaimed and imaginative characters, backgrounds, titles, effects and environments.

At the MAXON booth, # SL2327, the company will showcase its complete range of state-of-the-art 3D product solutions. MAXON will also host some of today’s most talented 3D artists who will provide useful tips and techniques, and also look at the behind-the-scenes role that CINEMA 4D played in the making of award-winning feature films, broadcast graphics, commercials, and more.
