Maxon has announced updates to several of its application including Cinema 4D R25, Trapcode Suite 17, VFX Suite 2, and the introduction of Redshift RT.
New features in Cinema 4D Release 25 include a new modern skin for the UI along with several more interface enhancements and a preset system for optimising workflows. New Spline Import options allow users to use Illustrator, PDF and SVG vector artwork in their 3D scenes. Capsules allow anyone to tap into the power and flexibility of Cinema 4D’s Scene Node system, with plug-in-like features directly in the Classic Object Manager. Finally, New Spline and Data Integration functionality can be used to build Capsule Assets.
Trapcode 17 now includes the ability to work with Particular and Form in the same 3D space by bringing Form behaviours to Particular. The release also sees upgrades to the Flocking simulation with the addition of On Predator/Prey Contact and Team designations as well as improvements to system organisational capabilities in the Designer. Form also includes many updates and all Trapcode tools now support Adobe’s multi-frame rendering.
Redshift RT, which is available as a public beta, includes a new rendering mode that provides “near real-time rendering performance while using the same shaders, lights, and efficiently co-existing with the standard Redshift render engine in the same DCC and scene”.
