New Plug-in Allows CINEMA 4D Artists to Produce Alioscopy-ready Content—and Realize New Business Opportunities
Las Vegas, NV—NAB 2010—April 8, 2010—Alioscopy® USA, a 3D visualization technology provider, today announced the release of a plug-in that facilitates creating Alioscopy-ready 3D content within MAXON CINEMA 4D, the highly acclaimed professional 3D modeling, painting, animation and rendering software. The two companies will showcase the CINEMA 4D and Alioscopy workflow for creating amazing auto-stereoscopic 3D ‘pop-out’ content at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas, April 12th -15th (LVCC, South Hall, in the MAXON Booth # SL 5624).
The Alioscopy camera rig plug-in for CINEMA 4D offers an intuitive way for 3D artists to create immersive Alioscopy-ready 3D content, and add a marketable new skill set to their professional résumé as the demand for auto-stereoscopic, multi-view content increases. The plug-in is available now as a free download from the Alioscopy web site. It is also available from Cineversity, MAXON USA's CINEMA 4D training and education resource and includes a brief tutorial.
The spectacular growth of stereoscopic 3D motion pictures and home entertainment over the past three years has fueled the demand for immersive 3D experiences and presentations. Alioscopy has won multiple industry awards for its cutting-edge auto-stereoscopic hardware / software technology. In the past two years, Alioscopy has attracted and signed major industry business deals for its innovative business-to-business (B2B) approach to creating presentations and promotional materials for the digital signage, advertising, visualization, and trade show & event markets—where 3D glasses are not always practical.
“MAXON is continually seeking ways to offer value for its customers who create 3D content—whether for entertainment, design, architectural and medical visualization, or advertising purposes,” said Paul Babb, president and CEO, MAXON USA. “As the market for displaying auto-stereoscopic 3D content continues to gain traction, we’re excited that CINEMA 4D artists now have this new capability to easily create Alioscopy-ready content and take advantage of this exciting trend in display technology.”
“Within 24 months we’ve made incredible progress for auto-stereoscopic ‘no-glasses’ 3D here in North America. Creating Alioscopy-ready content is a crucial component for business growth—and partnering with MAXON helps extend our reach by offering more CG artists and producers a workflow to generate Alioscopy-ready content,” said Philippe Roche, CEO and President of Alioscopy USA. “We’re excited to have the most recent Alioscopy camera rig plug-in for CINEMA 4D artists to create Alioscopy-ready 3D content and enjoy the unique business opportunities this technology and our solutions provide. We invite all visitors at NAB to stop by the MAXON booth and check out this cutting-edge technology,” added Roche.
