Maxon Merges With Red Giant; Names Appointments to Executive Team

Maxon and Red Giant, creators of unique tools for editors, VFX artists, and motion designers, have completed all financial and regulatory agreements required to complete their merger. Additionally, key appointments in executive leadership have been revealed.
