MAXON USA, makers of Cinema 4D, have pledged support for Apple’s recently announced plans to migrate its Macintosh hardware architecture to CPUs made by Intel Corp.
MAXON CTO Harald Schneider said it’s actually good news for a cross-platform developer like him. “Since our products’ source code is over 95 percent platform-independent, it can be ported very quickly. In addition, Intel has always proven to be a very flexible and dedicated partner,” said Schneider in a statement.
MAXON indicated that Cinema 4D has already been in development using Apple’s Xcode development environment, leading its own “a secret double life.” ” To that end, the first internal Universal Binaries for Intel- and PowerPC-based Apple machines are already compiled in our labs,” said the company.
