Cinema 4D R19 (R19) Release

Smarttec.com.auMAXON announces the Cinema 4D R19 (R19) Release.
This next generation of MAXON’s professional 3D application offers great tools and enhancements for concept design artists for use immediately, and provides a peek into the foundations for the future.

Cinema 4D PriceDesigned to serve individual designers as well as larger architects or design environments, Release 19 offers a fast, easy, stable and streamlined workflow to meet today’s challenges in the content creation markets; especially general design, archViz, Virtual Reality, motion graphics, VFX, VR/AR and all types of visualization.

Cinema 4D R19 Feature Highlights Include:

Viewport Improvements – Results so close to final render that client previews can be output using the new native mp4 video support.

MoGraph Enhancements – Added workflow capabilities in Voronoi Fracturing and an all-new Sound Effector.

New Spherical Camera – Lets artists render stereoscopic 360° Virtual Reality videos and dome projections.

New Polygon Reduction– Easily reduce entire hierarchies while preserving vertex maps, selection tags and UV coordinates to ensure textures continue to map properly and preserve polygon detail.

Level of Detail (LOD) Object – Define and manage settings to maximize viewport and render speed, or prepare optimized assets for game workflows. Exports FBX for use in popular game engines.

AMD’s Radeon ProRender – Now seamlessly integrated into R19, providing artists with a cross-platform GPU rendering solution.

Revamped Media Core – Completely rewritten software core to increase speed and memory efficiency for image, video and audio formats; native support for mp4 video without QuickTime.

Robust Modeling– A new modeling core with improved support for edges and N-gons can be seen in the Align and Reverse Normals commands.

BodyPaint 3D – Now uses an OpenGL painting engine, giving R19 artists a real-time display of reflections, alpha, bump or normal, and even displacement for improved visual feedback and texture painting when painting color and adding surface details in film, game design and other workflows.

A complete feature list is available at the Release 19 landing page.

Cinema4D Stereoscopic Rendering

 

3D Stereo rendering

Interactive 3D is becoming the new norm with Cinema4D Stereoscopic Rendering and realtime VR – capabilities offered by ‘Unreal Engine’ and other games engines are producing fantastic realism from 3D software like Cinema4D Studio R17 that supports this Stereoscopic Rendering and interfaces to Unreal engine easily.

we are finding new ways to enhance and the architectural design experience.

Cinema4D has an easy path from ArchiCAD and other 3D design packages including Sketchup to build exciting realistic and interactive displays using Facebook’s  Occulus Rift and the new Microsoft Hololens soon to be released that provide this immersive new display experience.

 

Check here for some more background from the Cinema4D Apprentice on how you can use Cinema4D for 3D stereoscopic production . Watch this following video and learn.

 

 

Cinema 4D Architectural Visualization

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Cinema4D ArchiViz ( Oct 2015 )  Maxon recently had a webinar on Cinema 4D Architectural Visualization.

We have uploaded a recording of this event to our YouTube Channel if you’re interested in solidifying your skills or learning more about its capabilities.

Cinema 4D Architectural Visualization

For those were not able to attend, we invite you to watch the videos at your leisure to for more on the various Cinema 4D benefits and what it has to offer for architectural visualization.

This is a comprehensive review and demonstration of the architectural features that are available in Cinema4D Studio, specifically Cinema4D R17. It reviews the new Sketchup import improvements and also the powerful Mograph capabilities for adding mass 3rd party items such as environmental aspects including trees and plants that add realism to your model.

Remember that ArchiCAD and Vectorworks users have a particularly easy import path from these modelling systems.

You can download a Cinema 4D scene file with the grass material Johan-Bernd Zweverink used during the webinar here.

FUN WITH MAXWELL RENDER & Cinema4D

Reprint from Maxwell Blog
June 11, 2015 

This year’s FMX event in Stuttgart was a great opportunity to meet up with many of our partners and friends in the CG industry.  We had the chance to catch up with the guys at MAXONHDR Light Studio and Laubwerk, as well as some “out of office” time with our very own RealFlow team!  Good news – HDR Light Studio and Laubwerk both have new versions which are compatible with Maxwell.  HDRLS 5 plugins for Maya, 3ds Max and Cinema 4D all support Maxwell already, and Maxwell Studio compatibility will be out very shortly.  Laubwerk actually announced their new Plants Kits 1.0.15 release at FMX, and this new version comes with support for Maxwell (free trial here) in both Cinema 4D and 3ds Max!

This added Maxwell support was first tested by Rob Redman, Creative Director at Pariah Studios, who used Maxwell and Cinema 4D for the testing.  Rob was also our speaker at FMX this year! In this recording of the presentation, Rob talks about his pipeline and workflow, and also gives some practical tips on using Maxwell. Rob is a Maxwell Render Xpert Trainer – so listen up for insights into creating animated Multilight videos from one render, lighting & environment tips, cameras, materials, the importance of real world settings and more from this experienced professional and trainer.

Thanks, Rob! We hope you enjoy the presenation: Rob Redman´s Efficient and Fun Pipeline with Maxwell Render:)

MAXON CINEMA 4D R14 new features

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

MAXON CINEMA 4D R14
New Features Offer Expanded Options

In Hollywood, many motion graphics animators have seen year over year dominance and adoption of MAXON’s flagship software CINEMA 4D.  Their newest release offers users improved feature sets and new tools to create 3D models and animation even easier than before.

Announced at SIGGRAPH, and shipping in September, the newest release of the popular 3D software includes a big change in the way users approach the software.  CINEMA 4D’s R14 now allows artists to sculpt their models with a variety of tools. Not only does the new software include tools to shape the objects that artists create, but its unique layering system allows models to be edited, baked, and dynamically assessed directly within the C4D workflow.

While there are very good third-party solutions for sub-polygonal sculpting, the new sculpting potential allows C4D artists to work within a pipeline that does not remove them from the MAXON setting, and gives them editorial and animation potential that third-party solutions don’t offer.

Motion Graphics for broadcast, web, film, and even some gaming has made MAXON’s C4D an easy choice for professional animators because of its tight integration with the compositing software already used in the industry.  For years, C4D has exported scene data and prepared project files for Adobe After Effects, Apple Motion, Shake, and other compositing software.  Release 14 now adds the ability to support The Foundry’s Nuke software, creating many more file-specific passes that allow artists to achieve more detailed control during the compositing process. Moreover, there is full support for OpenEXR when exporting those files.
