Maxon Updates 4D Motion Software For Apple Devices

Maxon, a developer of software for motion designers and visual effects artists, has released an update to its Moves by Maxon package for iOS devices.

This exploits the emerging technology of Apple's AR-Toolkit, which enables users to capture facial motion and whole-body movement while allowing artists to bring motion sequences into Cinema 4D with limited technical effort.

Moves by Maxon was released in early 2020 and has gained traction among Cinema 4D users. The latest update makes the app more stable and user-friendly, according to the company. Most notably, Moves by Maxon now includes simplified connectivity to Cinema 4D S24 via automatic network discovery, avoiding the need to scan a QR Code image or manually configure the IP address of the machine running C4D.

Moves by Maxon is immediately available from the Apple App Store and is compatible with iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPad Pro (3rd Generation). This new version of Moves by Maxon will work with Cinema 4D R21+, but the ability to transfer content to C4D without the need for a QR code of IP address configuration requires C4D Subscription Release 24.
