Maxon releases free AE exchange plug-in
NEWBURY PARK, CA — Maxon (, the maker of 3D modeling, painting, animation and rendering solutions, has released a new Adobe After Effects plug-in that allows motion graphics artists to export projects directly into Cinema 4D R13.

Using the plug-in, the Cinema 4D export appears directly in the After Effects export menu and generates a .c4d file containing 3D layers, cameras, lights, solids, nulls and footage. Nested compositions are also supported. All major layer attributes, including animations (rotation, position, parameter, anchor points, POI, etc.), expressions, layer parenting, layer locking and layer visibility are retained. Render and document settings in Cinema 4D are adapted accordingly to the After Effects project settings.

The Cinema 4D R13 exchange plug-in is available as a free download.
