Newer than a royal baby and probably far better at 3D modelling, Maxon have announced at SIGGRAPH 2013 that CINEMA 4D R15 is going to ship in September. This time round, Maxon are including a free Maxon Service Agreement to ensure that customers not only get a free upgrade to R15 when it is released but will also have the benefit of the MSA for a yea. They’re also offering some pleasing discounts when you buy multiple licences – you’ll have to give us a call for the details of those, though. In the meantime, here’s the official word from Maxon…
FRIEDRICHSDORF, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)– MAXON today introduced CINEMA 4D Release 15 (R15) that redefines the 3D motion graphics, visual effects, painting and rendering software workflow. The next generation release of the widely-used 3D software package reinforces MAXON 25-year industry leadership reputation and is marked by powerful enhancements to modelling, text creation, rendering and sculpting.
MAXON will debut CINEMA 4D R15 at the SIGGRAPH 2013 convention, July 23-25, 2013, Booth #315.
Key Highlights of CINEMA 4D Release 15
Rendering Enhancements – The new Team Render brings control over all surplus processing power in a network, a new irradiance caching algorithm has been added for faster approximation of Global Illumination, as well as improved ambient occlusion.
Modeling Enhancements – An all-new interactive beveling tool for improved manipulation and control over object edges and curves, results in clean, efficient meshes.
Improved Typographic Tools – Enhanced typographic, text editing and control capabilities over MoText and Text Splines are now available directly in the 3D view.
Dynamic Sculpting – Improved dynamic sculpting tools include advanced masking, mirroring, duplication options, as well as the new Amplify brush to interactively inflate, and use new draw modes to sculpt lines and areas defined by lasso, polygonal drawing or a rectangle.
Miscellaneous Workflow, Modeling and Animation Improvements include a powerful texture management tool to control texture links, new Grass Material, Camera Crane rig to simulate real-life Jib crane shots, and more.
