Friedrichsdorf, Germany – February 23, 2021 – Maxon has announced its extensive lineup of 2021 events for content creators working in 2D, 3D, motion design, VFX and visualization. In addition to participating in mainstay industry events like SIGGRAPH, NAB, and IBC, Maxon will continue with their popular free online showcase, the 3D & Motion Design Show, the first of which will take place on March 17, 2021.
The 3D & Motion Design Shows will continue to feature presentations from expert motion graphics and VFX artists showcasing professional 3D techniques and real-world production workflows using Maxon’s Cinema 4D, Redshift and the Red Giant product lines. Presentations from each event will be streamed live and will be available online shortly after airing on 3DMotionShow.com as well as the Maxon YouTube channel.
Maxon also hopes to make its return to in-person trade shows, including the IBC Show in Amsterdam (September 10-13) and NAB in Las Vegas (October 10-13). Should these industry tentpole events take place in person, Maxon will broadcast its 3D & Motion Design Show presentations live from the show floor on 3DMotionShow.com. In the event travel restrictions remain in place, Maxon will present fully virtual events.
“Though we’ve certainly missed seeing our colleagues, friends, and peers at the in-person events, we were quite humbled by the success and demand for our virtual events in 2020,” says Maxon CEO, David MacGavran. “We are excited to announce our 3D & Motion Design Show lineup for 2021 with informative, new recurring segments for added value and entertainment. We hope these virtual events continue to provide our community with helpful workflow tips and with any luck, we will soon be able to get together and continue these in person as well."
