MAXON Computer announced the re-launch of Cineversity, the online training and education resource for Cinema 4D users. According to the company, the redesigned site takes advantage of the latest web innovations to provide users with a more intuitive interface, improved search and filtering capabilities for easier access, the ability to create custom playlists, and an interface for teachers to interact with their students.
Digital artists and educators use the Cineversity site for tutorials that sharpen their 3D skill set as well as videos that highlight the latest Cinema 4D features. The website was launched in 2006 with 100 tutorials. Since then, it has grown to nearly 2,000 video tutorials, resources and learning materials created. Prior to re-launching the site, MAXON conducted a survey asking artists and educators what changes and features they most wanted to see on the site.
The improved search and interactive filtering capabilities in Cineversity let users search for terms and further define results, making access to the content-rich site more effective. Searching is available in both the Tutorials and Playlists sections concurrently. Users can then create an RSS feed for their custom search results.
Similar to those used for music, Cineversity now allows users to create custom playlists with selected tutorials. Artists and educators can create playlists for specific Cinema 4D tasks or subjects and organize, categorize and manage them for enhanced learning and productivity. Playlists can be made public or shared privately with other users. Each user’s home page also features a new dashboard that provides an overview of playlists, viewing history,and new tutorials.
The new site offers a direct link and show archive of MAXON’s bi-weekly “Cineversity Live” webcasts, as well as a link to the webcasts new availability via Podcast.
