"Based on the positive reception we received from artists at tour stops last year, we're thrilled to continue our joint partnership with Adobe," said Paul Babb, president, MAXON. "Creative professionals are constantly challenged to improve their 3D/2D production pipelines and get the most from their toolkits. We're confident the tour will address artists' needs by showcasing the superior capabilities a MAXON/Adobe integrated workflow brings to motion graphics studios."

"We were excited to be able to host the Adobe/MAXON Power Integration Tour last month at Digital Media Artists / Los Angeles (http://www.dmala.org) With 3D animation becoming more of an expected talent for all motion graphics and broadcast designers, the presentation showed how easily the two products work together," said Ko Maruyama, co-host Digital Media Artists/Los Angeles. "Most of the DMA/LA members are professional animators and compositors working in and around Hollywood. Some use 3D applications and some use compositing software. While many of our members use both animation and compositing software together, everyone was impressed by how well CINEMA 4D and Adobe After Effects fit within a production pipeline."

Each Power Integration Tour session will demonstrate how the combined power of Adobe Creative Suite 3 Production Premium and MAXON's CINEMA 4D can produce stunning 3D motion designs faster and easier than ever before. Attendees will learn about an array of motion graphics topics and be taught how to create compelling 3D broadcast designs culminating in the production of a television newscast opening.

As an added bonus, attendees are eligible to win over $60,000 in door prizes that feature complimentary products from Adobe and MAXON, and from tour sponsors including: Artbeats, Cybermotion: Chris and Trish Meyer, Digital Anarchy, Gridiron Software, Intel, NVIDIA, Pixel Corps, NTI, Cyberlink, RE: Vision Effects, and Verbatim.
