Maxon to live-stream NAB news and artist presentation

With the Las Vegas NAB Show now cancelled, Maxon will be hosting a virtual NAB presence on C4DLive.com featuring a lineup of working artists. Starting on Monday, April 20, and running through Thursday, April 23, these pros — who were originally slated to appear in Las Vegas — will share production tips, techniques and inspiration and talk about working with Maxon’s Cinema 4D, Red Giant and Redshift product lines

For over a decade, Maxon has supplemented its physical booth presence with live streaming presentations. This has allowed show attendees and those unable to attend events in person, to benefit from demos, technology updates and interaction with the guest artists in real time. First up will be CEO Dave McGavran, who will talk about Maxon’s latest news and recent merger with Red Giant.

In terms of artists, Penelope Nederlander will break down her latest end credit animation for Birds of Prey; filmmaker Seth Worley will walk through some of the visual effects shots from his latest short film, Darker Colors; Doug Appleton will share the creative processes behind creating the technology for Spider-Man: Far From Home; Jonathan Winbush will demo importing C4D scenes into Unreal Engine for rendering or VR/AR output; and Veronica Falconieri Hays will share how she builds cellular landscapes and molecular structures in order to convey complex scientific stories.

The line-up of artists also includes Mike “Beeple” Winkelmann, Stu Maschwitz, EJ Hassenfratz, Chris Schmidt, Angie Feret, Kelcey Steele, Daniel “Hashi” Hashimoto, Dan Pierse, Andy Needham, Saida Saetgareeva and many more.

Additional presenters’ info and a live streaming schedule will be available at C4DLive.com.

3D Design + Motion Tour to visit 26 cities, 3D artists presenting

The 3D Design + Motion Tour will hit the road September 2 through December 10, making stops in 26 cities throughout North America and Europe. Artists who want to break into high-end 3D digital production will have the chance to learn from VIPs in the motion design and visual effects industry, including Andrew Kramer from Video Copilot, Nick Campbell from Greyscalegorilla, EJ Hassenfratz with Eyedesyn, Chris Schmidt with Rocket Lasso and Thanassis Pozantzis with Noseman. The tour is sponsored by Maxon, Adobe, Nvidia and Dell and produced by Future Media Conferences with partnership support from NAB Show.

At each 3D Design + Motion Tour stop, attendees will learn how to create a state-of-the-art production company vanity logo animation. Event organizers have tapped the creative team at Perception — the motion graphics design studio recognized for redesigning the Marvel Studios logo and opening animation and visual effects for Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Thor: Ragnarok and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice —to design and execute an exclusive project for the tour. Industry-leading guest artists will break down key project elements and share motion design techniques that highlight the integration and performance between Maxon’s Cinema 4D application, Adobe’s Creative Suite and the Redshift GPU-accelerated renderer for unlimited creative capabilities.

The $95 cost to attend the 3D Design + Motion Tour includes software apps to help artists sharpen their 3D skillsets:
• Adobe CC 30-day license
• Cinema 4D 90-day license
• Redshift 90-day license
• Sketchfab 90-day license
• Project files and resources
• Inclusion in event drawings

Tour registration also includes networking with local artists and VIP presenters, access to tutorials and project files, and follow-up webinars. Space is limited. Registration details are here.
