Maxon’s 99frames Competition

 

 

This is a contest that anyone can join, regardless of their skill level. This competition has a restriction of 99 frames to make it easier to create an entry. Everyone can and should be inspired to take part using the new features of CINEMA 4D R13 to create their own animation.

After the contest has ended Maxon will composit all 99frames animations to make a large clip with a specially composed soundtrack that will be made available to the global community.Everyone involved is then encouraged to pass this composition on so they can show everyone their contribution to the 99frames competition.

To inspire participants even more, Maxon are giving several amazing prizes to the winners ranging from plugins to a VRAYforC4D license or even a CINEMA 4D Studio Version! The winners will be selected by a jury of industry experts: David Lewnadowski, Kay Tennemann, Manuel Casasola Merkle, Mike “the monkey” Senften, Nick “GreyscaleGorilla” Campbell and Rizon Prein

The competition is being run by David Drayton, a Cinema 4D Product Designer for Maxon.

So get your CINEMA 4D engine running and get to work!

Silver Edge Award for CINEMA 4D

MAXON is pleased to announce CINEMA 4D R13, its cornerstone 3D motion graphics, visual effects, painting, and rendering software application has been named a recipient of  the prestigious Computer Graphics World Magazine SIGGRAPH 2011 Silver Edge Award.

SIGGRAPH 2011 is the world’s premier conference on computer graphics and interactive techniques, which took place in Vancouver last August. MAXON was among the more than 150 industry organizations exhibiting at the show.

Since 1977, Computer Graphics World magazine has provided in-depth editorial coverage of the modelling, design, animation and multimedia technologies and their uses for engineers, designers, researchers and animators within the primary fields of science, art and entertainment. According to Karen Moltenbrey, CGW Editor,

“…the annual awards recognize impressive technologies at the show, so selecting the CGW Silver Edge Award winners was certainly challenging. Yet, there were some offerings, including CINEMA 4D Release 13, that stood out from the rest as having the potential of greatly impacting our industry now and in the future.”

CINEMA 4D R13, the next generation of the professional 3D software package, was on public display at SIGGRAPH, and started shipping last month. Revered by digital artists worldwide for its superior ability to quickly and easily create stunning high-end 3D images and animations for film, broadcast, architecture, games, multimedia, design and engineering, Moltenbrey noted that the new character tools that MAXON developed for R13, alongside its integrated stereo workflow capabilities, as well as the physically accurate rendering for generating photorealistic imagery, were among the considerations in conferring the software with this year’s Silver Edge Award.

MAXON remains committed to constant innovation and aims to bring the most advanced, user-friendly tools to 3D artists around the world,” said Paul Babb, president and CEO at MAXON US.  “Since its release last month, CINEMA 4D R 13 has garnered enthusiastic industry response. We are thrilled that CGW – the editorial authority and one of the “must-read” publications catering to animation and computer graphics professionals – recognized CINEMA 4D as an industry-shaping design tool and honored us with the Silver Edge Award.”
