e-on software has announced Ozone 2.0 for Cinema 4D, a plug-in for adding animated atmospheric effects.
e-on plans to release Ozone 2.0 simultaneously for Mac OS X and Windows this spring. Ozone 2.0 will include a volumetric atmosphere system; a volumetric system for simulating the interaction of light and air; tools for creating animated clouds and sunsets; and over 100 atmospheric presets based on real world and “other world” locations
Ozone 2.0 for Cinema 4D is comprised of four plug-ins: a Master plug-in, an Image filter plug-in, a Pixel filter plug-in and a Shader plug-in. The latter lets users fine tune the included presets or generate new atmospheres. Ozone 2.0 is expected to cost US$249.
Cinema 4D is Maxon’s 3D modeling and animation software. The latest version R8 was released in October with pricing starting at $599. It’s compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x.
