(London, UK--June 22, 2009) It was a trophy bonanza for CINEMA 4D at the Macworld awards held in London on June 18, 2009. MAXON's flagship 3D software - regarded as the easiest to use all-purpose professional 3D tool - won 'Macworld Best Animation and 3D Product 2009.'
The win makes CINEMA 4D by far the most awarded 3D app on the Mac in the UK. CINEMA 4D has now rounded up no less than seven of the UK's biggest Mac awards: Macworld Best 3D App in 2003, 2006 and now 2009; and MacUser Best 3D App in 2000, 2001, 2004 and 2007.
The nominees for the award of Best 3D App were: CINEMA 4D, Autodesk Maya 2009, Autodesk ImageModeler 2009, Boris Continuum Complete 6, and Carrara 7 Pro.
In handing CINEMA 4D a third Macworld award, the magazine drew attention to CINEMA 4D's leading support for the Macintosh platform, full range of features, and arguably the app's greatest weapon: its superior ease of use.
Macworld said: "CINEMA 4D is now a fully cocoa-native app and one of the few apps available that can take full advantage of Apple's 64-bit operating system. This allows you to render hugely complicated scenes in a single pass and we must say that it works well without a hint of drama. Not forgetting that CINEMA 4D still boasts the awesome MoGraph module, a feature-packed character animation toolset, and hair and cloth simulation, we doubt that there's an easier-to-use, better-integrated and feature-rich 3D toolset out there."
The 2009 award was collected by MAXON UK Managing Director Liam Stacy. Liam said, "Macworld is a fantastic magazine and its awards have been a highlight for many years, so it is a great honour that CINEMA 4D has been recognized for a third time as Macworld's Best 3D App of the Year.
"I was also delighted that special guests were able to attend the event with us - staff from Jigsaw and Trams, two of our top resellers. They have played a big part in spreading the word about CINEMA 4D's power and ease of use, giving excellent advice to customers. We thank them for their brilliant support."
Spurred on by the win, MAXON will continue to show true grit and determination, with its sights remaining firmly focused on providing customers with powerful 3D tools that are easy and fast enough to use to create superior results to the tightest of real-world deadlines.
