The facial capturing app Cineversity CV-AR is still available as a separate product 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 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 21, or later. Cineversity also provides an overview video, installation instructions and basic instructions of use tutorials.
