CINEMA 4D RELEASE 20
Welcome to the Deep End

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 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.


CORE TECHNOLOGY
Release 20 continues a push towards modern core technology, with substantial API changes and further development on a new modeling framework.

MULTI-INSTANCES
Manage millions of objects in Cinema 4D’s view by simply switching the Cloner to Multi-Instance mode.

MOTION TRACKER
The power of the Motion Tracker is tamed through key workflow enhancements.
