MAXON & RED GIANT JOIN FORCES!!

Recommended Posts

If MAXON is in such a good mood to purchase other companies, I have two suggestions that would make more sense than the RED GIANT purchase:

 

1) Video Copilot Element 3D - Just buy this and put inside Cinema4D. It will work as an improved viewport AND as a real-time render engine. The plugin already reads C4D files, so it's a no brainer.

 

2) HitFilm Pro - Which is basically a (very good) Adobe After Effects-Premiere-Element3D clone but all in one, This would be an amazing companion for Cinema 4D if it could read C4D files natively and had the same 3D navigation commands.

 

You're welcome MAXON. 😁

Now we just need adobe to buy them and then include all of it in creative cloud. 

Won't happen

This idea is circulating around for 10+ years and with recent developments I hope it becomes even clearer that it won't happen. Details about this merger will be announced in January, it is a good thing and there is much to look forward too as with Redshift 🙂

It won't happen like subscription would never happen? 😉

I never said anything about subscription if memory serves me well, but I did constantly repeat about Adobe buyout.

In reality MAXON always had subscription in MSA form, right?

I don't have a crystal ball to see what future brings but there was never a single sign then and now for that to happen. Nemetschek would be unwise to sell excellent performer in their portofolio, plus recent acquisitions reinforce this 🙂

A fully fledged 3D application will never buy a 3D 'lite' plugin - not going to happen!

 

It does seem to me as if MAXON are positioning themselves to look more attractive to be bought by Adobe. I don't want it to happen, but this merger makes no sense at all. I was excited after the Redshift buy out, this one worries me.

This merger could be great, but it would be interesting if MAXON had already ironed out the Cinema 4D R21 new license concerns before this new merger. We still don't have a procedure to buy second hand R21 licenses and there's a lot of voiced concerns about the whole cheap rental but pay up-front.

Element3D is not simply a "3D Lite" plugin. I'm guessing you never used it to say that. It's pretty much a high quality game-engine (like Unreal) inside After Effects plus a procedural animation system similar to Mograph. It's years ahead of quality in comparison to Cinema4D viewport. You should check it out. You can get high quality 3D renders in real-time with Element3D, something that you cannot in Cinema4D. Element3D has been used in Star Wars The Force Awakens and other big films.

 

As for not happening, MAXON just bought REDGIANT whose main product is an After Effects Plugin, Trapcode. So it's not farfetched at all that they could buy another plugin like Element3D then.
