Maxon Cinema 4D Prime R20 is made for graphic designers looking to add 3D into their work.

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 has 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 Multi-License Discount is valid for users who will own three (or more) licenses of Cinema 4D Prime R20 with their purchase. If you currently own one license, two more will qualify you for the discount. If you own two, the third will qualify you. If you don't own any, you can purchase three at the discounted cost.
