have released a new update to Cineware
for the latest version of Adobe® After Effects® CC, a key
component of Adobe
Creative Cloud®
. 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. (Note: additional details at here)

“We appreciate the tremendous value that MAXON adds for After Effects
users around the world,” said Sue Skidmore, partner relations for Adobe
professional video. “The latest update to Cineware for After Effects CC
gives motion graphics and visual effects artists greater workflow
flexibility and improved Live 3D Pipeline performance.”

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.


This enhanced integration between After Effects and Cinema 4D is
available immediately to Adobe Creative Cloud members.
