ftrack offers a simple, yet really powerful cloud-based project management system for creatives. The system is meant to be an all-in-one creative collaboration tool that can be used by large or small teams alike.

Recently, the platform has a new release which contains some really great integration right within Cinema 4D. The new integration enables MAXON Cinema 4D users to access projects, publish and import files, and manage activities via an ftrack panel implemented into the Cinema 4D user interface. ftrack’s toolset works seamlessly with Cinema 4D’s solutions, enabling improved and streamlined collaboration across 3D projects.

“Cinema 4D projects can grow incredibly complex. An integration with ftrack is therefore hugely beneficial – its organisational and collaborative workflows empower Cinema 4D artists’ creativity, enabling them to concentrate on design, imagination and ideas, rather than the administrative chores that ftrack effortlessly takes care of.” notes Oliver Meiseberg, Director of Product & Partnership Management at MAXON.

ftrack’s Key integration features include

  • Instant access to project management – Gain a simplified overview of your assigned tasks from the main panel within Cinema 4D. Browse and drill down into any project.
  • Dive into details – Easily access task information, notes and published files from the ftrack panel in Cinema 4D. Import tracked files from the app or share notes.
  • Publish your work online – Send files onto ftrack’s cloud platform directly from Cinema 4D. ftrack supports a broad range of storage options, including your own file system

New features are planned for later in 2016, including the ability to create projects and tasks directly from within Cinema 4D, without the need to set up projects in ftrack itself. Along with Cinema 4D and 3ds Max, ftrack currently offers deep integrations with numerous creative applications, including Adobe’s Creative Cloud (Premiere, Photoshop, After Effects), The Foundry’s NUKE, Autodesk Maya, Cospective’s cineSync and more

The ftrack team will be attending SIGGRAPH 2016 in Anaheim. They will be available for live demonstrations of the Cinema 4D integration at booth #768.

If you are curious about how ftrack works, users can sign up for a free 30-day free trial to try the new C4D integration. Users can also follow Cinema 4D projects when away from the desk with the ftrack Go app.
