C4D & Redshift 3D
C4D as known as Cinema4D adds standout features for all C4D users and integrates technology from across the Maxon family. This release includes some of our artists’ most-requested features, such as comprehensive modelling symmetry, in-place asset management, and native OCIO support.
Unified Simulations gains artist-friendly features as well as support for soft-body simulations.
Pyro is a new tool for quickly simulating fire, smoke, and explosions on the GPU or CPU.
The new Redshift Camera features intuitive physical camera controls as well as Redshift Effect settings. The C4D viewport preview of Redshift materials keeps improving, with support for animated textures, ramps, and color correction nodes.
Radial Symmetry now makes it easier than ever to interactively model anything round.
We’re combining the best of Maxon technology with Maxon One integrations across Maxon One into Redshift, Red Giant, ZBrush and Forger.
What is C4D?
Cinema 4D is a software solution for professional 3D modeling, animation, simulation, and rendering.
Its fast, powerful, flexible, and stable toolset makes 3D workflows more accessible and efficient for professionals in design, motion graphics, VFX, AR/MR/VR, game development, and all types of visualization.
Whether working alone or in a group, Cinema 4D produces stunning results.
Why do you use Cinema4D instead of Blender?
We know “Blender is free” – but:
Cinema4D is often used by Design Studios. It works pretty well in combination with Adobe products like Illustrator and Aftereffects. You can save a lot of time by importing vector illustrations and animating them. The interface is pretty easy to learn and you can get fast results. Redshift3D is now integrated and a fast render engine. The community is sharing a lot of wisdom and you can learn it very fast. We started with Maya, but the UX back then was quite heavy. Of course we also like the current development of Blender, but at the moment we recommend Cinema.
