Maxon Ships Cinema 4D For Intel-Based Macs

Publish date:

Only days after the first new iMacs with Intel Core Duo processors began shipping, Maxon issued a "universal binary" version of Cinema 4D, its award-winning 3D animation package. This makes Cinema 4D not only the first 3D application, but also the first professional graphics application, available in a universal binary version that runs natively on the new Intel-based Macintosh Computers.

Apple itself utilized a universal binary version of Cinebench, Maxon's Cinema 4D-based benchmarking tool, to demonstrate the power and speed users will realize with this new hardware platform. In general, an Intel Core Duo 2.0 GHz iMac renders over twice as fast as an iMac G5 with 2.1 GHz. This makes adding an Intel Core Duo system a very attractive option for Cinema 4D users. These results were achieved using a final, production-ready version of Cinema 4D--not a beta version.

The universal binary version of Cinema 4D is available immediately. Owners of Cinema 4D R9.5x can download a free upgrade to the universal binary version from Maxon's website,
