      Seamless Connectivity Between Company’s 3D Content Creation Solutions and
      Leading Game Development Platforms – Unity 3D and the Unreal Engine – On Display


      Who:
      MAXON , the industry-leading developer of 3D motion
      graphics, visual effects, painting, and rendering software applications,
      will be exhibiting its award winning 3D content creation solutions -- CINEMA
      4D and BodyPaint
      3D--
      at the 2013 Game
      Developers Conference (GDC), March 27-29, 2013 at
      the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

      What:
      Game developers and artists eager to learn how they can easily incorporate
      3D models, animation and environments into their game development pipeline,
      are invited to stop by the MAXON booth (#2033, South Hall) for demos
      highlighting the seamless connectivity between CINEMA 4D and BodyPaint with
      many of today’s leading game development platforms including Unity

      Attendees to the MAXON booth at GDC will also learn how MAXON BodyPaint 3D
      easily integrates into current Photoshop, Maya, Softimage and/or 3ds Max
      workflows to easily create custom 3D textures for current and next-gen
      games as well as gain powerful tips and practical techniques, especially
      for handling complex data, that will prove invaluable in real-world game
      studio pipelines. Recent hit game titles that have leveraged CINEMA 4D and
      BodyPaint 3D include *Halo 4, Empress of the Deep 3, *and* Call of
      Duty:Black Opps II.*

      Why:
      MAXON software solutions are revered by game developers and 3D artists for
      their spectacular image quality and an intuitive, easy-to-use interface
      that puts professional results within reach of artists at all levels of CGI
      experience.



      Willie Stevenson, president of Silverback
      Games,
      has been using CINEMA 4D for several years on a number of game projects
      including the just-released *Empress of the Deep 3* casual game series for
      PC, Mac, IOS, ANDROID. “CINEMA 4D is our sole 3D software solution and is a
      proven toolset which we’ve used successfully in conjunction with our
      proprietary game building platform, SILVERBUILD, within the framework of
      the Unity Engine,” Stevenson said. “We’re using CINEMA 4D in real-time and
      the new sculpting tools in R14 not only provide us with technical
      advantages but incredible creative flexibility to generate complex game
      assets.”

      For the recently released hit video game, *Halo 4*, The Sequence
      Group,
      the Vancouver, BC-based creative studio, partnered with the Halo franchise
      team at 343 Industries,
      and relied on CINEMA 4D to build, texture, animate and render scenes that
      produced over twenty minutes of original animated content in the game,
      including eight “Terminal” animations – hidden content within the game that
      players can access providing detailed backstory about the characters and
      the new Halo world.

      "Creating our main characters in CINEMA 4D was an advantage as we could
      reuse them for an entire scene without having an artist paint a new
      character for every scene, while the seamless integration of the CINEMA 4D
      Mograph toolset with Adobe After Effects allowed us to achieve a painterly
      look for all the 3D renders and create complex and dynamic animations
      without having to spend countless hours coding,” Ian Kirby, Sequence Group
      Director, said.
