MAXON has announced a new update to Cineware (3.0) for the latest version of Adobe After Effects CC, a key component of Adobe Creative Cloud. It’s available at http://tinyurl.com/jllyfv9 .
The Cineware Live 3D pipeline first introduced in After Effects CC offers improved workflow and greater performance. OpenGL rendering is now available within the Cineware effect, providing increased speed and higher quality results than the software render option.
Users can now choose to automatically sync the After Effects and Cinema 4D time sliders. The new Cinema 4D Take System, introduced in R17, the latest Cinema 4D release, is also supported; After Effects artists can now choose to render specific takes in a Cinema 4D project file.
After Effects users who don’t 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 version of the Cinema 4D toolset that launches directly from within After Effects CC.
