Cinema 4D is a very powerful 3D animating and rendering program. This is a program used by video professionals for creating visual effects for gaming, animation, and film. The program is one of the industry leaders -- powerful enough to create the very best in 3D animations.


Online support: The support and education available on the Maxon website are excellent. They include a feature called "Cineversity," which includes hundreds of free videos, which familiarize people new to the program with its basic features. The videos are clear and easy to understand and can get you up and running in very little time.

Animation features: Cinema 4D is a very smart program that makes animating much easier than it has been in the past. For instance, the walk feature allows you to attach a specific walk to a character model. Then just indicate the path of the character, and the program automatically animates the walk, including accounting for any terrain the character is walking over.

Hair and fur features: An entire toolset for creating great looking hair and fur effects for character models is intuitive enough for a beginner.


Resource heavy: This program performs fairly complex operations when animating 3D objects, and as a result is very resource heavy. Although the test computer met the minimum specifications outlined on the website, operations were quite slow. A very powerful machine would be required for this program to work smoothly and quickly.

Bottom Line

Cinema 4D is an industry leading program for animating in 3D. If you're not familiar with how to use the particular program, the company provides you with an excellent learning resource. It has also added a number of features that make animating and designing characters quicker and easier than ever before.
