MAXON Adds New Dimension to Design with Cineware for Adobe Illustrator CC

New Plug-in Allows Artists to Integrate 3D Content Directly in Illustrator CC


Friedrichsdorf, Germany – October 10, 2017 – MAXON, the leading developer of the professional 3D modeling, animation, painting and rendering solution Cinema 4D, today announced the release of Cineware for Illustrator. This new plugin allows artists and designers to add and edit 3D objects directly within Adobe Illustrator CC, the industry-standard vector graphics application included in the Adobe Creative Cloud.


Cineware for Illustrator uses the same powerful 3D engine as Cinema 4D, MAXON’s industry-leading, intuitive, professional 3D application. Users can import any C4D file, and tweak the view, lighting and textures to integrate 3D elements with 2D designs or use 3D elements as templates when creating vector artwork in Illustrator CC. This enables designers to visualize product labels, incorporate rich 3D content into Illustrator compositions, or even arrange 3D elements as guides for form and perspective when creating vector artwork.


MAXON has partnered with TurboSquid, the leading online source for 3D models, to provide Cineware for Illustrator users a “jump start” into the third dimension with a collection of ready-to-use 3D models, including common product packaging and other 3D objects. Users of Cinema 4D can create and share their own custom 3D content for use in Illustrator CC.

I am a classic graphic designer that never really got into 3D modelling, even if I know my way around in C4D. Anyhow, this new plugin I am more than sure will revolutionise the classic graphic designer's workflow. It looks absolutely brilliant and I can't wait to have the routine to get in my daily workflow!

Great share. One question though - Is this in any way better than Adobe Dimension (Project Felix)? Of course not talking about the flexibility of cineware here but the ease of use of Dimension is next level actually...wanna know what you guys think.
