Friedrichsdorf, Germany – December 14, 2021 – Maxon is pleased to announce that the latest update to Adobe® After Effects® includes Cinema 4D Lite (Release 25). Based on the company’s award-winning 3D animation package, C4D Lite is available immediately for download to Adobe Creative Cloud® members (Please Note: After Effects users who do not own the full version of Cinema 4D are encouraged to install the latest Service Pack via Maxon App or the standalone installer for best performance).
Artists can use Cinema 4D Lite to create and import 3D content into their After Effects projects. Cinema 4D content can be added to After Effects projects just like footage, and artists can extract scene data, like cameras, 3D objects, object masks, etc., that can be manipulated inside of After Effects. For After Effects users, it’s a great way to explore the exciting world of 3D motion graphics for free – including basic modeling, texturing, lighting and animation.
Cinema 4D Lite can be launched within After Effects and independently as a standalone application. And, since Cinema 4D Lite utilizes Maxon’s new entitlement system users can instantly upgrade to the full commercial version at any time directly from within Cinema 4D.
