Maxon Cinema 4D overview

  • 1Description

Maxon Cinema 4D Studio R20 is the complete Cinema 4D package for advanced 3D graphics. Cinema 4D Studio has all the features of Cinema 4D Prime, Broadcast, Visualize, and BodyPaint 3D combines, altogether providing a comprehensive toolset for all 3D applications. Thanks to Cinema 4D's reliable design makes Cinema 4D 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.

Cinema 4D Studio is 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 Cinema 4D Studio 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 Competitive Discount provides the perpetual version of Cinema 4D Studio R20 at a discount to government and non-profit organizations, owners of any Cinema 4D software in any version and release, and owners of any other 3D applications.

Maxon Cinema 4D specs

System Requirements macOS 10.11.6 or 10.12.4+ with 64-bit CPU running on Intel-based Mac

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

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.
