Maxon Cinema 4D overview

  • 1Description

Maxon Cinema 4D Studio R19 is the complete Cinema 4D package for advanced 3D graphics. C4D Studio has all the features of C4D Prime, Broadcast, Visualize, and BodyPaint 3D, altogether providing a comprehensive toolset for all 3D applications. Cinema 4D's reliability also makes C4D Studio ideal for fast-paced 3D productions. Maxon regularly releases free service packs for optimization with changes in operating systems and drivers, contributing to continued reliability in demanding environments.

Cinema 4D Studio is designed with a logically arranged (and customizable) interface and intuitive, easy-to-understand operation. To make things easier, the interface also allows any questions about a specific function to be asked by right-clicking on the function and jumping straight to the integrated software documentation.

C4D is also designed to stay flexible throughout your entire project. It offers various options, such as parametric modeling, procedural shaders, and textures, for working non-destructively, and the C4D Take System allows you to save and manage multiple versions of a scene in a single file.

The application is compatible with Mac and Windows systems.

Note: This is a 3-month term extension from 3-Month or 6-Month Short Term subscriptions of Cinema 4D Studio R19.

New Features in R19

Workflow
Viewport Improvements
R19 adds support for Screen-Space Reflections and OpenGL Depth-Of-Field in addition to Screen Space Ambient Occlusion and Tessellation. The OpenGL view can be used to output preview renders directly for client approval using the new native MP4 support. Preview everything from your scene: Shadows, Transparency, Reflections, SSAO, Tesselation, Depth of Field.

LOD (Level Of Detail) Object
Maximize viewport or render speed, create new types of animations, or prepare optimized game assets with the new LOD object. You can simplify objects and hierarchies automatically based on screen size, camera distance, and other factors. An intuitive new interface element makes it easy to define and manage LOD settings, and your levels of details export via FBX for use in popular game engines.

New Media Core
As part of our core modernization effort, Cinema 4D's support for image, video, and audio formats has been completely rewritten for increased speed and memory efficiency. Cinema 4D now natively supports MP4 without QuickTime, so it's easier than ever to deliver a preview render, incorporate video as textures, or motion track some footage. All import and export formats are more robust and feature-packed than ever before.

Exchange Format Updates
Export LOD and selected objects via FBX and Alembic. Re-time and render accurate motion blur with subframe interpolation support for Alembic files.

New Feature Highlighting
Quickly identify new features in R19 or in specific tutorials with New Feature Highlighting.
Animation
Pose Space Deformation
Create muscles and tweak the deformation at key poses artistically, without setting up and rigging complex muscle objects. Using Pose Space Deformation within R19's PoseMorph tag, it's easy to create correctional morphs that are driven automatically by joint animation. Attach the morph to a weight map and animated joints, and the morph will be automatically applied based on the character pose.

Weighting Improvements
Painting weights is one of the more tedious aspects of character rigging, but Cinema 4D R19 introduces some great workflow tools to improve the process. New algorithms for mirroring weights make it much easier to translate the work done on one side to the other, while the Weighting Tool has improved normalization and smoothing. The Weight Manager includes many enhancements to make it more intuitive, plus you can now use multiple Weight Manager windows and easily filter each window to specific joints.

Workflow Improvements
Improved painting workflow (joint viewport selection, smoothing, eyedropper), restructured weight manager, improved weighting commands (bind to multiple meshes).

Maintenance & Optimization
Increased weighting precision, normalization improvements, increased painting performance.

Scene Reconstruction & Tracking Improvements
Integrating 3D objects into tracked footage is easier than ever with Scene Reconstruction, which creates colored point clouds and geometry based on tracked features. Manually tracking features is much easier, too - you can choose whether tracks evaluate the red, green, blue or full luminance of the footage.

Other Tweaks
Noise falloff type with Perlin, Ridged Multifractal, and all of C4D's Noise types. Bind multiple objects to joints with a single click. Use undeformed objects as collision shapes for faster dynamics.
MoGraph
Voronoi Fracturing Enhancements
Breaking stuff became easy and popular with the release of the fully-procedural Voronoi Fracture object in Release 18. And now in Release 19, it's been made easy to keep stuff together, and it's also up to 4x faster.

Connectors
Break objects progressively based on object collisions and other forces. Dynamic Connectors between fracture pieces ensure they stay together until enough force is applied.

Prefracture Transformations
Create wood splinters and crystal structures with pre-fracture transforms.

Detailing
Displaced noise along the broken surfaces makes fractured pieces appear more realistic.

Glue
Glue multiple fracture pieces together to create complex shapes.

Other Enhancements
Improved sorting (by distance to object or custom vector). Create honeycomb shapes with Invert Offset. Create shells with Hull Thickness.

Sound Effector
With the all-new Sound Effector in R19, it's easy to create energetic music visualizations and make motion graphics move to the beat. Drag probes to isolate specific frequencies and volumes, and iterate, distribute or blend the values from each probe to control your clones. Built-in decay smooths the animation without the need for a Delay effector. Link multiple effectors to a single sound track for easy control and faster playback, and render the animation with sound using new native MP4 support.
Rendering
Radeon ProRender
Unleash the power of your graphics card to create physically-accurate final renders. AMD's Radeon ProRender technology is seamlessly integrated into Release 19 with support for Cinema 4D's standard materials, lights, and cameras. Whether you're using the powerful AMD chips in the latest Mac systems, or NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards with Windows, you'll enjoy a cross-platform, deeply-integrated solution with a fast, intuitive workflow.

Interactive Rendering
Attach ProRender to any view and use it just like any other view. You'll get instant feedback as you rearrange objects, adjust the camera, and tweak materials and lighting.

PBR Workflow
New PBR Material and Light options include ideal defaults for a Physically-Based Rendering workflow.

Bucket Rendering
Render the whole image progressively, or use bucket rendering for better memory management when rendering at high resolution.

Cross Platform
ProRender scales up to use all the graphics cards in your system, whether you've got a MacPro with multiple Radeon cards or a Windows system with AMD and NVIDIA cards.

Deep Integration
Use Materials, Lights, and Cameras.

Firefly Filter
Eliminate hot-pixels common to path-tracers.

Spherical VR Camera
Render stereoscopic 360° Virtual Reality videos and dome projections with Release 19's Spherical Camera. Specify a latitude and longitude range, and render in equirectangular, cubic string, cubic cross or 3x2 cubic format. Render proper VR stereo with pole smoothing to minimize distortion.

Tone Mapping
Preserve detail and manage exposure with industry-standard Tone Mapping algorithms like Reinhard and Photo Linear.

Variation Shader
New options to vary UV tiling and individual hair strands.

Team Render Discovery
Find and link Team Render Clients on your network without the need to install Bonjour.

Strand Renderer Speedup
Embree technology offers faster raycasting for massive speedups in scenes with lots of reflections and transparency.
BodyPaint 3D
OpenGL
BodyPaint 3D now uses OpenGL, so you'll immediately see a fantastic preview when painting color, reflectance, alpha, bump or normals, and even displacement. When working in a physically based shading workflow, you can now paint on every reflectance channel with a full preview that utilizes R19's Screen Space Reflections. Projection painting is fully multi-threaded and for faster translation of brush strokes onto your model.

UV Editing Improvements
Efforts to improve C4D's UV Editing toolset are underway, and you can enjoy the first fruits of this work in Release 19. Create selections more efficiently with options to convert point and polygon selections to the related UV points and polygons. You can now grow and shrink UV point selections, and Coordinate Manager support makes it easy to move and align selected UV elements.

UV Coordinate Manager
Dial in UV Coordinates with numeric precision.

Converting Selections
Use Loop, Ring, and other Selection Tools to convert easily to related UVs.

Polygon Islands
Select contiguous UV islands with a double-click.

Windows 7 SP1 64-bit or higher on Intel or AMD 64-bit CPU with SSE3 support

4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

OpenGL graphics card supporting OpenGL 4.1 (dedicated GPU recommended)

The GPU renderer requires an NVIDIA or AMD graphics card on Windows or AMD on macOS which supports OpenCL 1.2 or higher At least 4 GB VRAM is recommended for GPU rendering

USB port, registration is required


Special Notes from Maxon

Cinema 4D on Windows 10:
There are no known Cinema 4D issues that are Windows 10-specific but your user experience might differ, depending on your hardware. A closed field test showed that some but not all GPU drivers or input device drivers work less reliably on the new operating system, especially when using 3rd-party plug-ins that rely on these drivers. This can change anytime if these drivers are updated, which means that no general guidelines exist regarding which graphics cards will be affected. For users of Intel HD2500 / HD4000 GPUs, the use of Windows 10 is not recommended because they will most likely not receive the necessary updates. Additionally, some versions of QuickTime could not be used with Windows 10. According to the Apple support website, there is no official support for Windows 10. However, positive feedback has been received with regard to using version 7.7.9 with Windows and Cinema 4D.

CPUs:
Generally, Cinema 4D supports all currently available Intel and AMD 64-bit CPUs with SSE3 support. However, the risk of compatibility issues for new CPUs (like AMD's latest Ryzen family of CPUs) that are released during a Cinema 4D release cycle cannot be completely ruled out. But updates may be provided in the future for current releases to support these CPUs.

Graphics Cards:
Generally, Cinema 4D supports all OpenGL 4.1-capable graphics cards. Nevertheless, a dedicated 3D graphics card with an AMD or NVIDIA chip set is recommended. High-performance graphics chips are currently already available in mid-range laptops. Ensure to always use the most current certified graphics card driver (no beta versions).

Regarding NVIDIA 3D Vision:
A quad buffered graphics card is required to use NVIDIA's 3D Vision Shutter glasses for viewing the stereoscopic display in Cinema 4D.
