NAB 2014: Maxon has partnered with Vizrt to increase the level of integration between its Cinema 4D graphics app and real-time modelling and animation system Viz Artist.

It means projects can now be natively imported into Viz Artist through Maxon’s Cineware technology.

“This is the most complete import of geometries, lights and animation into Viz Artist and Viz Engine from any 3D modelling package,” said Vizrt chief engineering officer Gerhard Lang.

“3D objects are imported either as their direct primitive object counterpart in Viz Artist or as meshes.”

Maxon said assets are immediately visible and can be utilised in on-air-mode, and that both the object and container properties such as position and scaling are updated automatically.

Maxon product manager Oliver Meiseberg added: “As a manufacturer dedicated to developing robust 3D solutions for the broadcastmarket, we are very excited to partner with one of the most renowned and innovative players in this industry.

“Our collaboration with the teams at Vizrt was exceptionally efficient, and we are very excited to deliver a ground-breaking new workflow experience to Vizrt artists with the new live link to CINEMA 4D.”

Cineware will be made available to users with the upcoming version of Viz Artist and Viz Engine.
