The announcement 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; enabling artists to 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.
