Cinema 4D is a professional 3D modeling, animation, simulation and rendering software solution. Its fast, powerful, flexible and stable toolset make 3D workflows more accessible and efficient for design, motion graphics, VFX, AR/MR/VR, game development and all types of visualization professionals. Cinema 4D produces stunning results, whether working on your own or in a team.
Cinema 4D 2023 brings standout features for all Cinema 4D users and integrates technology across the Maxon family. This release provides some of the most-wanted features among our artists – comprehensive modeling symmetry, in-place asset management and native OCIO support. Unified Simulations gain artist-friendly features and support for soft-body simulations. The latest update for Moves by Maxon makes it even easier to capture face and body movements. We’re bringing the best of Maxon technology together with integrations across Maxon One into Redshift, Red Giant, ZBrush and Forger.
With the new Unified Simulation System you can achieve more realistic-looking simulations that incorporate multiple objects with different simulation characteristics such as cloth, ropes and soft bodies. The Unified Simulation System allows simulations to be calculated on either the CPU or GPU and is highly multi-threaded, offering improved performance with complex cloth simulations.
MODELING WITH SYMMETRY
Creating 3D objects has never been easier thanks to a broad collection of new procedural and interactive modeling tools. Automatically transform the topology of any mesh using ZRemesher. Create entirely new shapes with a bevy of powerful new interactive modeling tools, many of which can also be applied procedurally via Node Capsules. Advanced spline nodes power new capsule possibilities, while improved Vector Import support makes it easier than ever to work with Illustrator and SVG artwork.
Modeling with Symmetry allows mirrored changes on the model. Users can define the symmetry using the world grid, the object axis, a custom workplane, or even the topology of the model.
ASSET BROWSER WATCH FOLDERS
The Asset Browser provides easy access to libraries of preset content stored locally or online, including a vast collection of 3D objects, materials and capsules available to Cinema 4D subscribers. The library can be browsed or searched, and each asset includes rich metadata and keywords. Assets are downloaded on-demand, so there’s no need to pre-download huge libraries of assets. They’re also cached on your local computer, so your favorite assets are immediately available for re-use.
OCIO COLOR MANAGEMENT
OpenColorIO (OCIO) is an open-source color management system that allows users to easily manage their color throughout all stages of the production pipeline in a predictable and consistent way. In Cinema 4D, the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) enables content creation without the limitations of small color spaces. If artists have OCIO installed, they can produce in ACES in current or future versions of Cinema 4D.
MOVES BY MAXON
With Moves by Maxon for iPhone and iPad Pro you can capture facial and full-body movement, and instantly bring them into Cinema 4D. Whether you want to record your facial expressions or capture your best dance moves and martial art poses, Moves by Maxon is the perfect app.
IMPROVED GOZ ZBRUSH CONNECTION
GoZ (for GoZBrush) is a dynamic bridge between ZBrush and other 3D packages built around a specific file format, the GoZ file. In a single click, send your model from ZBrush to one of the supported applications. You can also send your maps to do a render, edit geometry, or add an element to your model. Then, send the updated items back to ZBrush, still in one click! GoZ works with different Tools or SubTools, visible or not.
With GoZ, you can use your time to work on your model, not managing your import and export.
Cinema 4D is available in the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Czech, Polish
