Maxon Comparison Chart

Production Proven

From games to film, BodyPaint 3D is the choice of texture artists around the globe. BodyPaint 3D’s unmatched stability has helped Hollywood artists paint huge, highly detailed textures for film, and unique workflow features make it an ideal choice for creating game textures.

All-in-One Solution

The BodyPaint 3D toolset is available in every edition of Cinema 4D, and many of C4D’s basic features are available in the standalone version of BodyPaint 3D. Cinema 4D users can switch seamlessly between modeling, texturing and animation tasks while dedicated BodyPaint 3D artists benefit from Cinema 4D’s procedural shading, lighting and animation systems.

High Resolution

Pixel perfect painting is useless if you can’t work at the necessary resolution. BodyPaint 3D offers smooth painting of textures up to 64k and 32-bit, making it possible to create rich, incredibly-detailed textures.

.PSD Support

With full support for layered PSD files, it’s easy to paint textures in both BodyPaint 3D and Adobe Photoshop. Specific views can be exported to Photoshop and reprojected back onto the 3D model in BodyPaint 3D. You can even load your favorite Photoshop brushes into BodyPaint 3D.

Great Tablet Support

BodyPaint 3D goes beyond basic pen input, offering a unique interface to fully control how pressure, tilt, direction, rotation and barrel roll effect any brush attribute.

Minimum System Requirements Cinema 4D and BodyPaint 3D

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

macOS 10.11.6 or 10.12.4+ with 64-bit CPU running on Intel-based Apple Macintosh
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. We recommend at least 4 GB VRAM for GPU rendering.

USB port, Registration is required.

MAXON cannot guarantee support of new hardware and operating systems shipped after release of this Cinema 4D/BodyPaint 3D version.

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. Our 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 third-party plugins 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, we don't recommend the use of Windows 10 because they will most likely not receive the necessary updates.

QuickTime: Some versions could not be used with Windows 10. However, we received positive feedback with regard to using the current version 7.7.9 with Windows and Cinema 4D. According to the website, there is no official support for Windows 10. Download: https://support.apple.com/downloads/quicktime

CPUs

Generally speaking, Cinema 4D and BodyPaint 3D support all currently available Intel and AMD 64-bit CPUs with SSE3 support. However, we cannot completely rule out 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. Nevertheless, we will provide updates for current releases to support these CPUs as quickly as possible.

Graphics cards

Generally speaking, Cinema 4D and BodyPaint 3D support all OpenGL 4.1-capable graphics cards. Nevertheless, we recommend using a dedicated 3D graphics card with an AMD or NVIDIA chip set. High-performance graphics chips are currently already available in mid-range laptops.

Make sure that you always use the most current certified graphics card driver (no beta versions).

To find out more about processing speed, CINEBENCH test results can be found online.

Important notice

MAXON is not responsible for the compatibility of individual graphics cards with the OpenGL mode. Due to the large number and types of available chip sets, operating systems and driver versions we cannot guarantee the compatibility of all systems.

The technical specifications of MAXON products are constantly changing. Please use the most current demo version of the software to test its compatibility on your computer.

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.
