Maxon brings 3D to Adobe Illustrator with a new Cineware plugin
Maxon has released a Cineware plugin for Illustrator, adding the ability to add, edit and adapt 3D objects directly within Adobe’s vector based drawing application. Features include the ability to transform objects and edit materials, including applying vector artwork to the surface of models; preset cameras and tools to edit the view to any vantage point with lights that can be enabled, disabled and tinted. The release also comes with several preset models, focused on packaging, created in partnership with Turbosquid.
Cineware for illustrator is free, but limited to importing existing .c4d files only. Users who need to create their own objects will need to upgrade to a commercial version. Find out more on Maxon’s website and watch a preview on YouTube.
