Ahead of the SIGGRAPH 2017 conference, MAXON announced Monday Cinema 4D Release 19 (R19). This next generation of MAXON's professional 3D application delivers both great tools and enhancements artists can put to use immediately and provides a peek into the foundations for the future.
Powerful developments have been made to viewport performance, a new Sound Effector and additional features for Voronoi Fracturing have been added to the MoGraph toolset, a new Spherical Camera introduced, the integration of AMD's ProRender technology and more. Designed to serve individual artists as well as large studio environments, Release 19 offers a fast, easy, stable and streamlined workflow to meet today's challenges in the content creation markets: especially general design, motion graphics, VFX, VR/AR and all types of visualization.
[NOTE: MAXON will debut Cinema 4D R19 at the upcoming SIGGRAPH 2017 convention July 30-Aug. 3, in Los Angeles, Booth #701.]
With Cinema 4D Release 19, MAXON also introduces a number of re-engineered foundational technologies, which the company will continue to develop and bring to maturity in future versions. These include core software modernization efforts, a new modeling core, deeply-integrated GPU Rendering for Windows and Mac, and OpenGL capabilities in BodyPaint 3D, MAXON's professional paint and texturing toolset.
"For more than two decades MAXON has been dedicated to delivering 3D graphics solutions with rock-solid stability, outstanding ease of use, a fast workflow and cross-platform capability," said Harald Egel, managing partner at MAXON Computer. "Cinema 4D Release 19 expands on those core values with outstanding new features and a first look at foundations for the future."
