(Friedrichsdorf, Germany--September 26, 2012) MAXON today announced worldwide availability of a free, fully functional, Student Edition of CINEMA 4D R14. Today’s release marks an expanded global initiative to empower students with unrestricted access to the same tools professional 3D artists use to sharpen their skills, without budget constraints.
“MAXON remains committed to providing students and educators with easy-to-use 3D software tools and training that will help boost their creativity to the next level,” states Harald Egel, co-founder and CEO at MAXON. “Free access to our CINEMA 4D Student Edition promises to benefit students in various fields of study – graphic design, motion graphics, film, animation, architecture and product design. We are pleased to offer students this comprehensive introduction to the world of 3D and help them to fast-track their success and deliver professional results in the real world.”
The functionality in the free student edition of CINEMA 4D differs only slightly from the package used by professionals worldwide in their high-end productions. Students receive a special version of CINEMA 4D R14 Studio, including all features such as the physical render engine, Hair, MoGraph, Sketch and Toon, a powerful character animation toolset and libraries bursting with objects and materials.
MAXON also offers educational institutions very affordable pricing for CINEMA 4D Studio licenses. All files created with the student version are fully compatible with the commercial version.
The CINEMA 4D R14 Student Edition license is available to qualified students at institutions of higher learning. Students can register online and can quickly get started once their status has been verified. To make learning CINEMA 4D even easier and faster, we will also include numerous tutorials that cover various aspects of the application. MAXON’s own video training portal also offers hundreds of free English-language video tutorials at http://www.cineversity.com
