Maxon Cinema 4D
Maxon's Cinema 4D is a complete 3D computer animation, modelling, simulation, and rendering package. It is a fast, powerful, flexible, and stable toolset that makes 3D workflows more accessible and efficient for design, motion graphics, game development, VFX, Augmented/Mixed/Virtual Reality, and any other type of visualisation discipline. Create stunning results with C4D whether you work alone or as part of a team.
What's New in S26
Cinema 4D boasts the most intuitive 3D application interface - and this just got even better with a new modern skin, user interface enhancements and an expansive preset system for optimising your workflow. Capsules allow anyone to tap into the power and flexibility of Cinema 4D's Scene Node system, with plugin-like features directly in the Classic Object Manager, while Data Import and Spline features within Scene Nodes power unique and useful toolsets via Scene Nodes, the Scene Manager and Capsules.
User Interface Enhancements
Cinema 4D's already intuitive interface has been further improved.
All new Cloth and Rope dynamics mean achieving more realistic-looking simulations with either CPU or GPU.
ZRemesher for Retopology
New interactive modelling tools, advanced spline nodes, capsule possibilities, and improved vector Import.
Bring vector artwork into Cinema 4D from Illustrator, PDF and SVG files.
Scene Nodes System
C4D's new node-based core allows users to utilise flexible node-based assets to enable procedutal geometry creation, cloning and more.
Redshift for Cinema 4D now supports CPU rendering and includes high-qualty previews in the viewport and import/export of Redshift materials.
Motion designers will benefit from MoGraph, a procedural modelling and animation toolset that lets users easily create complex and abstract animations. The Cloner object is the heart of MoGraph which allows the duplication of objects in many different ways. Add MoGraph’s powerful collection of Effectors to the mix and you can put everything in limitless motion using sound, fracturing, fields, and so much more! MoGraph is the go-to system for professional broadcast graphics designers and was recognised by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with a Technical Achievement Award in 2019.
Easy to Learn. Easy to Use.
Cinema 4D is widely recognised as one of the easiest and most accessible 3D packages to learn and use. To soften that learning curve, Maxon offers thousands of tutorials on Cineversity as well as hundreds of Quick Tips.
The building blocks of C4D, the complete polygon toolset makes it easy to craft everything from cars to creatures.
Cinema 4D offers a wide range of parametric objects that give you structure to build from.
C4D's OpenVDB-based volume modelling offers a procedural way to create complex objects.
Create organic models by pulling, smoothing, flattening, cutting, and pinching your models just like clay.
The swiss army knife of 3D modelling, poly pen lets you create, select, move or delete points, edges and surfaces without switching tool.
Quickly reduce the amount of polygons in your models while preserving smooth UVs, vertex maps, and selections.
Create photorealistic materials with multi-layered material channels, reflectance, procedural shaders, and more.
Almost any objects, material, or parameter can be animated. You can even keyframe manually, automatically, or parametrically.
C4D offers a wide range of easy and reliable tools to bring your characters to life.
Create dynamic relationships between objects, generate hair and cloth, or use springs and motors to generate amazing animations.
Cinema 4D offers on-board tools for tracking objects or camera positions.
Easily build flexible rigs for any type of character, based on presets for bipeds, quadrupeds, and more.
Mixamo Control Rig
Apply and modify motion clips from Adobe's Mixamo library.
This versatile character rig offers all the features you need to animate cartoon-style.
Moves by Maxon
Capture facial and body movements with the iOS app and apply them in C4D.
After Effects Integration
Drop native C4D projects right into After Effects where you can manipulate 3D elements and render directly.
Adobe Illustrator Integration
C4D allows import of paths, type, and vector graphics from this industry-leading vector graphics software.

By far the most used simulation tool for C4D, you can create realistic effects and abstract motion graphics.
Support for Cinema 4D is enabled via the Datasmith plugin.
The Unity plugin is compatible with Cinema 4D.
Vectorworks develops all-in-one design and BIM software for architecture, landscape, and entertainment.
Magic Bullet Looks
Apply over 200 preset film looks, import LUTs, or work with custom colour correction tools directly in C4D.
Lighting in C4D
Achieve real-world results by adjusting colour, brightness, falloff, visible or volumetric light, noise, and Lumen or Candela brightness.
C4D offers everything for a smooth rendering workflow including realistic and stylised renderings, as well as convenient management.
Change and save almost any parameter in C4D including object properties, animations, lights, cameras, materials, and textures.
