MAXON wins Computer Graphics World Magazine ‘Silver Edge Award’

Maxon’s Cinema 4D release 18 was selected as ‘Best of Show’ for Technology and Vision that promises to greatly impact the industry.


Computer Graphics World magazine had awarded Best of Show nods to hot technology at this year’s SIGGRAPH 2016 (see: Architosh, “SIGGRAPH 2016: Computer Graphics Show Round-Up,” 1 Aug 2016) and Maxon has won a Silver Edge Award for their latest flagship product.

Introduced at SIGGRAPH, the latest release of Cinema 4D R18 was another show favorite with the Maxon booth and company events boasting large crowds and large interest. Architosh covered SIGGRAPH 2016 as it has in many past years.

Formost Industry Publication Doles Honors

The designation of ‘Best of Show’ given to companies whose technologies and vision are considered to have the potential to greatly impact the industry is a significant honor. Serving the CG industry exclusively for the past 40 years, CGW is the foremost publication providing in-depth editorial coverage of the cutting-edge technology used in the latest animation, VFX, 3D, game development, film, CAD and medical industry.

CGW Chief Editor Karen Moltenbrey explains that the new Cinema 4D R18 release featuring enhancements to the MoGraph toolset, including the new Voronoi Fracture object and object tracking within the motion tracker, and other new features were deemed award-worthy:

“The Silver Edge Awards are not given to ‘the most popular’ but rather ‘the most inventive’ or those showing ‘the most potential’ for the industry,” explains Moltenbrey. “As expected, I was introduced to some amazing things at this year’s show. Of course, there were some brand-new offerings—some from newly formed companies and some from those that are leaders in the industry and have been for quite some time. Among them is MAXON, which continues to add innovative and much-needed features and functions to its Cinema 4D, making it one of the industry’s must-have products,” she adds. This year marks the fourth time MAXON has been a Silver Edge Award recipient.

“MAXON remains committed to improving customer workflow and productivity and is delighted that CGW, the editorial authority catering to animation and computer graphics professionals, has recognized the latest Cinema 4D technology with this year’s Silver Edge Award,” says Paul Babb, president and CEO, MAXON US. “With advances and growing public interest in areas such as virtual reality, augmented reality, digital signage and more, we are excited by the enthusiastic response for R18 from the worldwide community of 3D artists and industry at-large.”

Release for Cinema 4D R18

Cinema 4D R18 is scheduled for release September 2016. (Note: MAXON will debut R18 for the first time in Europe at IBC 2016, September 9-12, at the RAI Amsterdam, Hall 7, Booth K30.) A complete list of feature highlights in R18 is available here.
