MAXON Releases CINEMA 4D VectorWorks Update

New eXchange plugin is now available (June 30, 2004)

MAXON Computer releases the second generation of the CINEMA 4D VectorWorks eXchange plugin. The first version already made the life of architects a lot easier by allowing a seamless file transfer from VectorWorks to MAXON's renowned visualization tool CINEMA 4D. It was already outstanding by giving users the option of making changes made to the original CAD project and updating the scene in CINEMA 4D, even if lighting, animation and texturing were already underway in the latter.

The new version continues with even more features and tools, to make visualizing fast and easy. Symbols and individual objects can now be exported in classes. Symbols are imported as CINEMA 4D instances, providing more flexibility and a better structure for the architect to visualize his project.


The new plugin "Material eXchange" speeds up the process further by allowing the architect to replace hundreds of standard VectorWorks materials with sophisticated CINEMA 4D materials with just a mouseclick using a reference file. Now, a high quality visualization is a matter of just a few hours instead of days.

Together with the "ArchiTextures" library this set of tools delivers a perfect base for the convincing visualization of a VectorWorks project.

The eXchange plugin requires VectorWorks 10 or greater and CINEMA 4D R8.5 and is available from local MAXON distributors.
