Maxon at SIGGRAPH 2018 in Vancouver

Maxon will be presenting its newest innovations in Cinema 4D from August 14-16. High-end speakers will also be at the Maxon booth to talk about their latest projects.

This year, the Maxon booth at SIGGRAPH will again be the place to meet for VFX and motion design professionals. In addition to the newest developments all around Cinema 4D, Maxon promises SIGGRAPH visitors a spectacular line-up of speakers: find out from leading 3D artists how Cinema 4D speeds up the workflow for complex production environments for various Hollywood blockbusters, which animation techniques they use when creating their motion graphics and how Cinema 4D is used to create adverts for top brands such as Nike.

If you can’t make it to this year’s SIGGRAPH personally, all presentations can be viewed in the online stream at C4DLive.

Here is a sample of Maxon’s speaker line-up: 

Marti Romances, Creative Director of Territory Studio’s San Francisco facility, known for his artistic vision on numerous feature films including Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War and The Martian, will go through the process of how multipass renders combined with simple Cinema 4D techniques can help artists work in a demanding film production environment that requires quick iterations with limited render time. 

Robyn Haddow, a freelance motion graphics artist based in Vancouver, is noted for innovative idea exploration for next gen tech, with a focus on FUI design for screen graphics and holograms in film and television. Using the MoGraph toolset in Cinema 4D with X-Particles, she will show techniques from concept to exploration from the recent feature film, Ant-Man and the Wasp. 

Brandon Parvini, Technical/Art Supervisor at Los Angeles-based Bemo, will be covering techniques and workflows employed on the upcoming season of Adult Swim's Dream Corp LLC. Topics will include Non Photo Realistic (NPR) style rendering for look development and iPi Motion Capture-based workflows for character animation within Cinema 4D. 

Bhakti Patel, 3D animator and motion designer, whose work includes the Emmy-nominated main titles for Vinyl, UI design and animation for Black Panther and main-on-end titles for Thor Ragnarok, will showcase work on an American Horror Story teaser, El Silencio Mezcal commercial and an everyday project, to demonstrate modeling and animation techniques using her favorite toolsets in Cinema 4D. 

Tim Clapham, Director at, will explore innovative and experimental motion graphics techniques used on behalf of the Sydney Opera House “Lighting the Sails” projections Adobe MAKE IT conference titles and projects for Nike. Tim will also provide a peek into the latest toolsets in Cinema 4D.
