maxon 3d software

Maxon 3D software

Founded in 1972, Maxon is one of the leading providers of 3D animation software. Applications include 3D animation, special effects and visualization. A complete animation process consists of verbally, the 3D models of textures (material properties), providing, animating and rendering. Or part of these processes.

3D animation software is used to create 3D graphics, moving logos, special effects (VFX), visualizations such as interior and exterior “artist impressions” as well as complete stand-alone animation films.

Broadly speaking, Maxon has five product groups:

  • Maxon One includes all Maxon packages such as Cinema 4D, Red Giant, Universe, Redshift and, ZBrush
  • Cinema 4D software for 3D modeling, animating, painting and rendering
  • Zbrush for modeling modelling
  • Red Giant, a comprehensive toolset for multiple media products (including Avid Media Composer)
  • Redshift, one of the most photorealistic renderers on the market.

That means buying the software, purchasing regular updates, is being phased out in favor of SaaS (Software as a Service). This means that you pay a periodic fee, a subscription that covers the costs of use, maintenance (new versions and support). The advantage of SaaS for customers is that it is easy to scale up processes in the case of large orders and to scale back when the size is (temporarily) no longer necessary. This ultimately saves money.

Some of the products can be ordered on our website. Some others don't. For these products, advice is necessary and additional information is necessary. We therefore request that you contact us.
