MAXON Supports Intel-Based Apple ComputersAnnounces wide-ranging support of the new Intel-based Apple Macintosh (June 08, 2005)
Following the recent official disclosure of the industry's best-kept secret, 3D software specialist MAXON Computer today is pleased to announce its wide-ranging support of the new Intel-based Apple Macintosh Generation.
MAXON CTO Harald Schneider stated, "Apple's announcement is good news for a cross-platform developer like MAXON. Since our products' source code is over 95% platform-independent, it can be ported very quickly. In addition, Intel has always proven to be a very flexible and dedicated partner."
Always thinking ahead, MAXON's development team has been making sure it is in a position to react to advances or changes in technology very quickly. CINEMA 4D has been leading a "secret double life" as an Xcode version for a while. To that end, the first internal Universal Binaries for Intel- and PowerPC-based Apple machines are already compiled in our labs.
Applications like CINEMA 4D and BodyPaint 3D demand a processor's full range of performance. So MAXON's professional 3D applications will definitely benefit from the additional CPU power. The combination of Mac OS X's convenient and well thought-out operating system, Apple's reliable benchmark hardware and Intel's processor know-how is the perfect match to give 3D professionals unrivalled freedom of creativity.
MAXON has consistently demonstrated its lead when it comes to the implementation of state-of-the-art technologies such as multiprocessing, Hyper-Threading, Dual-Core technology and much more. Most recently, MAXON was the first (and only, to date) to release its professional 3D modeling, animation and painting solutions for Windows 64-Bit.
