MAXON Cinema 4D Studio R20

Cinema 4D is the professional 3D package for your needs. If you want to create advanced 3D graphics and need a helping hand to ensure you create jaw-dropping graphics quickly and easily, then Cinema 4D is the choice for you.

Why Upgrade?

Cinema 4D Release 20 marks a huge leap in technology, introducing massive new frameworks that put tremendous power in your creative hands. The possibilities are endless, your creativity is unleashed – it’s time to jump in the deep end.

Node-Based Materials

From simple references to complex shaders, you can build extraordinary materials in a node-based overview. Complex effects created via nodes can be wrapped as assets and delivered as simple materials, with just the necessary parameters exposed. Release 20’s node-based materials have the power to change the way you work, whether you directly create amazing shaders through nodes or simply make use of assets shared by those who do.

MoGraph Fields

Use more than just simple shapes to control effectors, deformers, weights and more. Fields will revolutionize the MoGraph feature set, making it easy to create complex effects by combining falloffs. You’ll never use Cinema 4D the same way again.

CAD Data Import

Say goodbye to conversion woes – most popular CAD formats can be imported with a simple drag-and-drop. Get the models you need, with the quality you want thanks to the robust and flexible import of STEP, Solidworks, JT, Catia and IGES files.

Volume Modeling

powered by OpenVDB

Better Booleans are only the beginning – create models by combining shapes, splines, particles, and noises. It’s all thanks to the power of voxels and OpenVDB. Import and export VDB and even use volumes to control MoGraph effects.

ProRender Enhancements

The next generation of native GPU rendering is here – and it’s packed with production-level features to help you get the job done. Render sub-surface scattering, motion blur, and multi-passes on your super-charged Nvidia PC or your state-of-the-art iMac.

But wait, there’s more!


Integrating 3D elements with 2D footage has never been easier thanks to some great workflow improvements to Motion Tracking in Cinema 4D Release 20. The Motion Tracking toolset has consistently matured since it was introduced in Release 16, supporting camera and object tracking, distortion correction and scene reconstruction. Release 20 focuses on refining the overall workflow, making these fantastic features even easier to use.

Track View – The Track View magnifies and focuses on a specific 2D track so you can easily monitor and tweak its position. With the Tracker View, you can see the luminance values used internally to track the footage, making it easy to adjust the color filter for the best contrast and automatic tracking.

Intuitive Layout – The entire Motion Tracker layout has been redesigned around the new Track View window and provides an ideal workflow with easy access to key managers and commands.

Enhanced 2D Track List – It’s easy to manage user tracks in a new list view. You can easily rename, reorder and organize tracks into folders, as well as adjust key parameters like the track size and shape directly in the list.

Virtual Keyframes – Placing keyframes dramatically improves the automatic tracking of manual features, but it’s tedious. The new Virtual Keyframes option automatically adds virtual keyframes based on the error threshold or frame interval.
