I am super excited about this one – it’s been in the works for quite some time, and I finally get to share a few details.
Today, Adobe announced it is entering into a strategic alliance with MAXON, the makers of CINEMA 4D.
Here’s why we’re doing it:
- After Effects works really well with CINEMA 4D. CINEMA 4D works really well with After Effects. The current interoperability exists between these two applications but, at a fundamental level, don’t really talk to each other in a way that’s super productive.
- I’m a HUGE believer in a simple philosophy – ‘do what you know, and be the best at it’. Hand in hand with this idea means that you DON’T do a whole lot of stuff you don’t know. With this relationship announcement you have two companies who focus on being the very best at what they do.
The alliance between Adobe and MAXON allows us to be very creative in how After Effects and CINEMA 4D work together now and in the future. Both MAXON and Adobe care very deeply about our respective users and see great opportunities in terms of workflow, time savings and creative flexibility.
I wish I could go into more detail right now – but stay tuned. This area is about to get very exciting.
