Germany’s Maxon, the developer of CINEMA 4D software, has announced a free iOS app for your iPhone or iPad (see compliant models below) called “Moves by Maxon.”
New AR-Toolkit App
The new Moves by Maxon app is available for free in the Apple App Store. It follows on the success of the Cineversity facial capture app, CV-AR, which is still available on the Apple App Store. However, designers who want full-body motion capture are now able to use Moves by Maxon, an application that combines both technologies.
Moves by Maxon capitalizes on the emerging technology of Apple’s AR-Toolkit, which enables users to capture facial motion and whole-body movement; enabling artists to bring motion sequences into Cinema 4D with limited technical effort.
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, iPad Pro® (3rd Generation).
A separate plugin is required to transfer the captured data from your Apple device to Cinema 4D and can be downloaded for free from the Cineversity website. This plugin is only compatible with the latest version of Cinema 4D – Release 2, or later. Cineversity also provides an overview video, installation instructions and basic instructions of use tutorials.
