Review: Cinema 4D R11.5 by Ko Maruyama

Ko Maruyama, a longtime user of Maxon Cinema 4D, reviews the latest release.

Here's a quick summing up of the review:

While my review covers some of the major changes in the software, these are the most compelling reasons to consider the latest version. There are also some workflow changes that have been made to the application which animators will appreciate.

Although it is a brief examination of 3 elements of the upgrade - Mograph2, Rendering, 3D data export, they dramatically enhance the design, animation and production experience of any 3D animator, especially those who develop material inside the workflow of a Hollywood-style design shop.

This upgrade, cloaked in a dot-5 moniker, really deserves much more credit. This is a substantial reworking of the tools professionals use every day, those tools on which a successful job depends upon.

It is without hesitation that we recommend a MUST BUY rating for this software, especially for owners of previous versions and/or 3D artists in animation design.

Press Release: GenArts Unveils New Version of Sapphire for Avid AVX2 Systems

Sapphire Version 3.02 Supports Avid's AVX2 Plug-In Interface on DS Systems and New Floating and Rental Licensing Options

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - October 20, 2009 - GenArts Inc., the premier provider of specialized visual effects software for the film, television and video industries, announced today GenArts Sapphire™ version 3.02 (v3.02) for Avid Systems. The upgrade extends support for Avid’s AVX2 plug-in interface to Avid DS v10.2.1 and later. This improves conform compatibility with effects generated from offline and online editing systems, allowing all Avid systems to seamlessly conform to DS and Symphony systems. GenArts Sapphire v3.02 also supports floating licenses and license rentals for all Avid systems.

While the prospect of creating sophisticated visual effects on Avid Media Composer and Symphony made the AVX2 plug-in interface popular among offline editors, it also created frustration for online editors using Avid DS systems, which only supported AVX1. Now, with Avid's recent release of DS v10.2.1 supporting AVX2 effects, GenArts Sapphire v3.02 for Avid makes it possible for the Sapphire effects used in any Avid project to work on any Avid system. Visit http://community.avid.com/forums/p/76089/425464.aspx for more details on the Avid DS v10.2.1 update.

With GenArts Sapphire v3.02, Avid DS users can:
  • Conform from Avid offline projects using AVX2. Online editors are now able to finish Avid projects without worrying which AVX version offline editors are working from; conversely, offline editors can now always use AVX2 (and the temporal Sapphire effects that go with it) to do their initial edits, since it is also available to online editors.
  • Take full advantage of effects that leverage alternate frame access. An additional 15 Sapphire plug-ins that are only supported on AVX2 are now available to DS users. These effects include the popular Feedback/Trails, TimeWarpRGB and TimeDisplace effects.
  • Open Avid project files that contain any version of Sapphire effects back to version 1, and automatically promote them to the latest version.

"Full AVX2 support makes it easier than ever to conform projects using the latest GenArts Sapphire plug-ins with Avid DS," said Derek Herr, Lead Compositing Editor at The Post Group. "We're thrilled that we no longer have to worry about AVX version issues between our offline and online editors. I've been waiting for this for a long time. Bravo!"

GenArts Sapphire v3.02 for Avid also supports floating licensing (via RLM servers) and license rentals for all Avid systems. For floating license users, this means maximum flexibility to support the dynamic requirements of temporary and freelance editors; lower support costs and less system downtime by seamlessly moving licenses from one machine to another; and visibility into license and upgrade budgets. License renters can take advantage of lower cost of entry for Avid users and maximum flexibility to assign the cost of using Sapphire licenses directly to a given project. Please visit www.genarts.com/product/sapphire/rent for more information on the Sapphire Rental Program and visit www.genarts.com/product/sapphire/float for more information on the advantages of a Sapphire floating license.

"GenArts Sapphire has become the specialized VFX software of choice for offline Avid editors around the world," said Steve Bannerman, CMO of GenArts. "Version 3 has enjoyed a tremendous adoption rate driven by the measurable productivity enhancements it delivers. Full support for AVX2 and the new licensing options available in v3.02 will raise the productivity bar even higher, offering the seamless support for DS systems that online artists have been hungry for."

Pricing and Availability
GenArts Sapphire v3.02 for Avid systems is available immediately and is a free upgrade to existing version 3 users.

Since the company's founding in 1996, GenArts software has been utilized in hundreds of films, television broadcasts and commercials, including more than 20 Oscar-nominated pieces such as Titanic; I, Robot; Armageddon; Star Wars Episode I, II and III; The Matrix trilogy; The Lord of the Rings trilogy; Pearl Harbor; Spider Man; Pirates of the Caribbean; Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban; Transformers; The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; and many more.

About GenArts
GenArts, Inc. is the premier provider of specialized digital visual effects for the film, broadcast and video industries. The GenArts Sapphire, Monsters and Raptors portfolio equips digital artists with a collection of state-of-the-art image processing and synthesis effects such as glows, light rays, lens flares, lightning, film damage, fire and fluid effects. The effects seamlessly integrate as software plug-ins into leading editing and compositing systems from Adobe, Apple, Avid, Autodesk, Assimilate, Eyeon, FilmLight, The Foundry, Quantel and SGO. The company was founded in 1996 in Cambridge, Mass. www.genarts.com.

Review: CoreMelt Complete V2

coremeltA nice review of CoreMelt Complete v2 titled "CoreMelt's plug-ins are getting better with age" by Kevin McAuliffe.

I have to say the I always like CoreMelt's effects, and I think that much like a good wine, CoreMelt's plug-ins are getting better with age. They were smart in the move away from FXFP to keep their plug-ins After Effects ready, as that keeps their product in the hands of more users. CoreMelt's V2 contains a good variation on the "standard" plug-ins (Bleach Bypass, etc), but adds a whole bunch more that you really need to have in your back pocket for those picky clients who don't know what they want, or want something very unique.

Apple's Meet the Expert: Peter Wiggins

peter wigginsYou may have heard Peter's name around here when referring to his fantastic idustrial revolution plug-ins, but Peter's is also a master editor. He's very well-known in the UK as an editor of sporting video. Last year at IBC we talked about his snooker tournament work which was up next on his schedule, but I had no idea he edited the Tour de France, a yachting competition and more. He has such a strong eye for seeing where the cuts fit together and shares tidbits about working with sporting footage on a tight deadlines, editing to audio, and so on. It's a very interesting video and interview (which streamed live yesterday). Watch it here.

Comparison: Apple Motion Text Engine vs. After Effects

Animating Text in Apple's Motion, a primer for After Effects artists.

Trish Meyers spoke today at the Motion09 Conference in Albuquerque and brought up some interesting comparisons on the text engines behind After Effects versus Apple Motion. Not quite new information, but worth a look if you haven't seen it already and are wondering whether to use After Effects or delve into Motion's capabilities when creating text effects.
"If you're familiar with animating text in After Effects, you might glance at Apple's Motion and think that it offers many of the same features for flying text around. While that is true, if you look a little closer you'll find that Motion can create some really great looks that you just can't get with After Effects. In this article, I'll review the text capabilties of both programs, and lead you through in detail how to typeset and animate text in Motion."

Review: Trapcode's Particular 2 by Kevin McAulliffe

The best particle generator (TP2) is still the best, and has pushed particle creation in After Effects so far, other companies won't be able to catch it!

In the end, my gripes with Particular 2 are small and if you didn't pick up Particular in version 1, it is a must have in version 2 if you do any particle effects what so ever. Don't let the $399 price tag fool you. You want the best? You're getting it!
