Maxon Computer today announced a brand new product in its lineup of 3D software—Cinema 4D Art. The new program is not an addon to Maxon's Cinema 4D XL. Rather, it's a standalone targeted toward designers and those who work in print and product visualization.

Cinema 4D Art is based upon Maxon's Cinema 4D XL and has inherited many of its rendering capabilities, including post-rendering compositing options. It has a maximum render size of 16,000 x 16,000 pixels and outputs images in TIFF, Photoshop and JPEG formats.

Other features include:

  • More than 100 modeling tools;
  • HyperNURBS for subdivision surfaces;
  • Built-in parametric deformers, such as twist and bend;
  • 13 material channels;
  • Stackable materials;
  • >
  • A materials system that allows for photorealistic materials.

Cinema 4D Art will be available March 19 for about $800. A version bundled with BodyPaint 3D will also be available for about $1,050. For more information, visit http://www.maxoncomputer.com.
