Cinema 4D
CINEMA 4D Studio is MAXON's flagship product. Studio includes all Prime, Broadcast and Visualize features - and more!
CINEMA 4D Studio has all the tools you need to tackle even the most complex project.
CINEMA 4D Studio can import and export a variety of file formats, which lets you integrate it in almost any pipeline. The modeling toolset lets you work with parametric or polygonal objects, subsivision surfaces and all types of deformers and modifiers. CINEMA 4D's non-linear modeling lets you modify parametric objects at any time and is lightweight and fast.
Materials and Textures
CINEMA 4D offers all standard and advanced options for creating the perfect surface for your models. Materials have 14 different channels and you can even customize channels for specific needs (e.g. game engines). Use images or movies as textures or advanced shaders such als Subsurface Scattering or Backlight. CINEMA 4D offers an industry-standard 3D painting toolset for high-end texturing.
When it comes to animation, CINEMA 4D Studio is a Jack of all trades. Of course it features all of the standard animation tools you would expect from a high-end 3D package.
But CINEMA 4D Studio has so much more to offer: An advanced character animation toolset, all-new rigid and soft body dynamics, cloth simulation, event-based particle system, Cloners and Effectors and even natural hair that waves in the wind.
Lighting and Rendering
CINEMA 4D Studio offers a wide variety of light and shadow types that can brighten up even the most challenging situations. And the render engine takes control of all available processor cores to get high-quality results as quickly as possible.
CINEMA 4D Studio offers tons of advanced lighting tools that go even further. IES lights for realistic light distribution, Global Illumination for indirect lighting, a physical sky simulation to realistically light outdoor scenes and much more.
