“This is the most complete import of geometries, lights and animations into Viz Artist and Viz Engine from any 3D modeling package,” said Gerhard Lang, chief engineering officer at Vizrt. “CINEMA 4D scenes are imported directly into Viz Artist without the need for CINEMA 4D to be installed on the Viz Artist workstation. 3D objects are imported either as their direct primitive object counterpart in Viz Artist or as meshes.”
CINEWARE, the new live link update tool integrated into Viz Artist, allows designers to make changes to a scene in CINEMA 4D and see the changes updated live when Viz Artist is set to on-air mode. CINEWARE updates objects as well as container properties such as position and scaling.
The MAXON CINEMA 4D integration with Viz Artist and Viz Engine will be shown at NAB 2014 on the Vizrt booth (SL2419) and will be made available to customers with the next release of Viz Artist and Viz Engine.
Vizrt’s products are used by broadcasters including: CNN, CBS, Fox, the BBC, BSkyB, Al Jazeera, ITN, ZDF, Star TV, Network 18, TV Today, CCTV and NHK.
