The Latest Release of Cinema 4D is Coming, and it’s a Big One.

Cinema 4D R20

It’s that time again and we’re close to the release of Cinema 4D R20!

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.

Maxon, creators of Cinema 4D, promise this will be a huge release with very exciting new features. Make sure you read to the end of this one too – we’ve got a great deal you don’t want to miss.

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

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.

 

 

 

Until August 31st 2018 – Full products, sidegrades and upgrades are discounted by the cost of a Maxon Service Agreement (MSA).

Place your order for Cinema 4D R19 now to get the discount, and you’ll be upgraded by your FREE 1 Year MSA to R20 when it releases! Please note that short term licenses do not upgrade to R20 short term. You will be able to upgrade a short term license to the latest version in the usual way when R20 is available.

We don’t have a date for you just yet for R20, but check in with our blog, Facebook or Twitter and you’ll be the first to know.

Big Offers from Vectorworks (Free VSS!)

Upgrade now to get free VSS and, if you’re using Fundamentals, a 50% discount on modules. Remember, you’ve only got until September 11th 2018.

Existing customers who do not currently have VSS will also get a free year of VSS if upgrading between August 1st and September 11th.

Free for Existing Fundamentals with VSS Customers

If you are a Vectorworks Fundamentals user with an active VSS contract, you will be given the opportunity to add a module to your existing license free of charge when 2019 arrives!

If you choose to add a free module to your license, your VSS renewal date will change to reflect the additional module.
