Press release

Maxon Studio Takes Visual Storytelling to the Next Level

Red Giant’s new template engine and streamlined editing UI is the ultimate toolkit for creating stunning videos fast with no learning curve!

Bad Homburg, Germany – June 5, 2024Maxon, maker of powerful, approachable software solutions for content creators working in 2D and 3D design, motion graphics, visual effects and more, today announced Maxon Studio.

A new After Effects template engine and intuitive interface available to Red Giant and Maxon One subscribers, Maxon Studio harnesses the capabilities of over 130 Red Giant tools so visual creatives of all types and skill levels can create standout videos with the click of a button.

Maxon Studio’s collection of Capsules was created in collaboration with the visual artist collective CandyMustache. They are not prefab templates, which can be hard to customize. Studio Capsules, powered by Red Giant tools, can be browsed, selected, and fine-tuned with a user-friendly editing interface.

Everyone who creates videos needs backgrounds, motion graphics, effects, and other elements they can rely on. With Maxon Studio creators can say goodbye to the pressure of a blank screen and focus on creativity.

Maxon Studio Highlights Include:

  • The initial release contains 250+ Capsules. More will be added routinely over time.
  • Studio’s Discover tab reveals a Capsule thumbnail gallery users can browse, filter, and search in seconds. This solves the problem of staring at a blank page when a transition, title, or other enhancement is needed.
  • Animated Capsule previews show exactly how the enhancement will look. From there, one click adds that Capsule to the After Effects composition in progress.
  • Built from dozens of Adobe and Red Giant tools and plug-ins, Capsules amount to hundreds or thousands of parameters and settings. Users often need only a handful of controls for the most common adjustments, such as keyframing. Studio’s Edit panel makes it easy to be creative without diving repeatedly into timeline layers to hunt for a maddeningly elusive parameter.
  • Studio’s UI can run in its own window on a separate screen or dock into After Effects for a more consolidated workspace.
  • Maxon Studio Capsules are responsive. So, whether a project’s resolution is 720p, 1080p, or 8K, Capsules will adjust the layout while maintaining the overall design.

Redshift 3.6.02

Also new this month, Redshift 3.6.02 extends the non-photorealistic rendering and Standard Volume capabilities introduced in April.

NPR Updates
Non-photorealistic rendering includes a new cross-hatch pattern, as well as offset and scaling options to customize the tone map pattern. Artists can now control how individual lights affect toon shading to customize the diffuse, reflection, and rim lighting, as well as control the behavior of contour lines in reflection and refraction.

Volume Padding for Standard Volumes
Users can extend the new volume displacement in Redshift’s Standard Material even further with the new Volume Padding parameter. This parameter expands the volume bounding box, avoiding unnatural cutoffs when displacement pushes clouds, smoke, and other volumes beyond a VDB or Volume Builder’s bounding box.

Additive Blending in Incandescent Textures
A new checkbox for additive blend on the incandescent node allows for great X-ray effects on meshes and particles, especially when combined with C4D’s Particles.

Cinema 4D Integration
Artists can now choose a custom display for materials via a new viewport output to improve texture placement and adjust the appearance of preview renders. Also, default ports within the Node Editor have been optimized so artists can set up materials more quickly and intuitively.

Blender Integration
Redshift now supports Blender 4.0 and Blender 4.1.
