CINEMA 4D is a complete and complex solution for 3D video animation that gives you total power and control throughout the whole design and creation process..

CINEMA 4D provides all you need to create high-end 3D pictures and animations. It consists of different modules according to your design needs. There are 8 different ones in total although each has to be purchased separately in addition to the main package.

It should be noted from the start that CINEMA 4D is a highly technical and professional package that isn't suitable for those new to 3D animation or modeling. It's designed for professionals in film making, TV, advertising, science, architecture and other fields that require professional results.

The speed that CINEMA 4D can manipulate and render animations is one of its strongest points. Certainly those used to working with Maya may notice significant speed improvements although this is obviously also dependent on your working on a 64-bit Mac. The customization modules are also one of the strongest aspects of CINEMA 4D allowing you to customize the package according to whether you are animating for film, architecture, 3D modeling etc.

For all those that aren't impressed with Maya and need a professional 3D animation suite, CINEMA 4D is the complete package..

Faster. Easier. More Realistic.

Cinema 4D R17 makes the easiest-to-use professional 3D software more efficient than ever before. New tools as well as expanded and completely reworked features help you turn your ideas into reality even quicker and with less effort. The improved workflow helps you meet the tightest deadlines. We’ve even gone so far as to re-invent the line!

Workflow That Simply Works

Work Fast, Play More
Smooth workflows bring creativity to life. That’s why workflow is front and center in Cinema 4D Release 17.

The revolutionary Take System will save precious time. The new Color Chooser does all those things you always wanted with color, as well as things you didn’t even know you wanted! Integration with Sketchup and the Houdini Engine make Cinema 4D your ideal hub. Let creativity flow.

Modeling

Onboard spline tools with real-time feedback
Release 17 comes with a complete splines toolkit - no need to switch to an external tool. Easily create and modify splines with Cinema 4D's new Pen tool, sketching, smoothing, arc tool, and boolean commands.

Sculpting

Intuitive and efficient organic modeling
Dozens of new features and improvements in Cinema 4D Release 17 make sculpting a true delight. Use Sculpt to PoseMorph, for example, to speed up character animation. Easily sculpt hard-surface models with Edge Detection. Release 17 makes sculpting in Cinema 4D easier than ever.

Improved Rendering

Better variability and usability with the new Variation and Formula Shaders
Release 17 offers new and expanded shaders to increase usability and performance. With the new Material Override function you can easily override specific channels of selected materials to create clay or matte renders.

Improved Animation

Greatly improved Motion Tracking features
Integrating 3D assets into video just got easier. The Motion Tracking feature in Cinema 4D has been enhanced by adding the ability to correct lens distortion and by adding an intuitive tool for quickly eliminating problem track points.
