Adobe has release After Effects CC 2015 (13.7) with CINEWARE 3.0

Check out Tim Kurkoski's blog post on the new features, which mostly are Bug Fixes and CINEWARE 3.0 for Cinema 4D with most features for the latest version (not the Lite Version included with After Effects).

CGMeetup on Maxon Cinema 4D release 16 New Features

Jason at CGMeetup has a great article on Cinema 4D Release 16's New Features.

Wish I could afford the full version as I have the lite version from After Effects, which does not get the updates like this, but have been very impressed with the speed and Power of Cinema 4D, and love it's integration with After Effects.

How to extrude Text in Cinema 4D Lite for After Effects CC from Filmmaker IQ

Filmmaker IQ has posted this tutorial on how to extrude text in Cinema 4D Lite included with Adobe After Effects CC. It is about 12 minutes long.


PVC on Maxon Cinema 4D Intergration in After Effects CC

The ProVideo Coalition has an article on the Cinema 4D integration in After Effects Creative Cloud, and it includes a few videos from Adobe.

And on Cinema 4D Lite

I so want to play with this. Been wanting to learn Cinema 4D for a while anyway, as it would be really useful in my career, though I need to not be working 12 hours a day! Should go through all the Adobe Videos on CC, but there is not enough time in the day.

PVC on Oblivion using Cinema 4D

The Pro Video Coalition has a press release on how the film Oblivion used Cinema 4D to do it's effects. Interesting.

Cinema 4D is on my list to learn after DaVinci Resolve, as it's new After Effects integration will be huge!

More on After Effects and Cinema 4D using Cineware


The Pro Video Coalition has a lot on the new After Effects Cinema 4D integration, but so does Maxon itself!

Check out the videos at Maxon, which show this in detail.

Not only do you no longer have to render from Cinema 4D, as the Cineware Plug in will let you render within After Effects to save time, but it also includes the incredible Cinema 4D Lite, a plug in within after effects that is limited yet feature rich version of Cinema 4D within After Effects! This may give Video Copilot's Element 3D a run for it's money!

I wonder if they will be able to do this with other 3D programs in the future, like Maya or Lightwave? This makes Cinema 4D really powerful! This is going to be the Go To 3D application because of this!

John Dickinson at Motionworks also has a good 10 minute video on how this works and their new Motionworks Lite plug in for Cinema 4D Lite, and it is worth checking out.
