Maxon Cinema 4D Overview

  • 1Description

Maxon Cinema 4D Broadcast R20 is an advanced 3D motion graphics software for creating dynamic broadcast graphics. Cinema 4D offers an intuitive workflow and reliable operation, allowing graphics artists to efficiently meet deadlines and make last-minute revisions. Maxon regularly releases free service packs for optimization with changes in operating systems and drivers, contributing to continued reliability in demanding environments.

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

Cinema 4D is also designed to stay flexible throughout your entire project. It offers various options, such as procedural shaders, for working non-destructively, and the Cinema 4D Take System lets you save and manage multiple versions of a scene in a single file.

The application is compatible with Mac and Windows systems.

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

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. 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.
