    Cinema 4D Studio is the very best that MAXON has to offer for professional 3D artists. If you want to create advanced 3D graphics but need a helping hand to ensure you create jaw-dropping graphics quickly and easily, then this is the choice for you.

    As well as containing all of the features found in Cinema 4D Prime, Visualize and Broadcast, Cinema 4D Studio adds advanced character tools, hair, a physics engine and an unlimited client network for rendering. The result is that Cinema 4D Studio can tackle any project you throw at it with ease.

    Cinema 4D Studio

    Cinema 4D Studio is MAXON's flagship product. Studio includes all Prime, Broadcast and Visualize features - and more! Cinema 4D Studio has all the tools you need to tackle even the most complex project.


    Cinema 4D Studio can import and export a variety of file formats, which lets you integrate it in almost any pipeline. The modeling toolset lets you work with parametric or polygonal objects, subdivision surfaces and all types of deformers and modifiers. Cinema 4D's non-linear modeling lets you modify parametric objects at any time and is lightweight and fast.

    Materials and Textures

    Cinema 4D offers all standard and advanced options for creating the perfect surface for your models. Materials have 14 different channels and you can even customize channels for specific needs (e.g. game engines). Use images or movies as textures or advanced shaders such als Subsurface Scattering or Backlight. Cinema 4D offers an industry-standard 3D painting toolset for high-end texturing.


    When it comes to animation, Cinema 4D Studio is a Jack of all trades. Of course it features all of the standard animation tools you would expect from a high-end 3D package. But Cinema 4D Studio has so much more to offer: An advanced character animation toolset, all-new rigid and soft body dynamics, cloth simulation, event-based particle system, Cloners and Effectors and even natural hair that waves in the wind.

    Lighting and Rendering

    Cinema 4D Studio offers a wide variety of light and shadow types that can brighten up even the most challenging situations. And the render engine takes control of all available processor cores to get high-quality results as quickly as possible.

    Graphics cards

    Generally speaking, Cinema 4D and BodyPaint 3D support all OpenGL 3.2-capable graphics cards. Nevertheless, we recommend using a dedicated 3D graphics card with an AMD or NVIDIA chip set. High-performance graphics chips are currently already available in mid-range laptops.
    Make sure that you always use the most current certified graphics card driver (no beta versions).
    To find out more about processing speed, CINEBENCH test results can be found online.

    Important notice
    MAXON is not responsible for the compatibility of individual graphics cards with the OpenGL mode. Due to the large number and types of available chip sets, operating systems and driver versions we cannot guarantee the compatibility of all systems.
    The technical specifications of MAXON products are constantly changing. Please use the most current demo version of the software to test its compatibility on your computer.

    Windows 10 There are no known Cinema 4D issues that are Windows 10-specific but your user experience might differ, depending on your hardware. Our closed field test showed that some but not all GPU drivers or input device drivers work less reliably on the new operating system, especially when using third-party plugins that rely on these drivers. This can change anytime if these drivers are updated, which means that no general guidelines exist regarding which graphics cards will be affected. For users of Intel HD2500 / HD4000 GPUs, we don't recommend the use of Windows 10 because they will most likely not receive the necessary updates.
    QuickTime: Some versions could not be used with Windows 10. However, we received positive feedback with regard to using the current version 7.7.9 with Windows and Cinema 4D. According to the website, there is no official support for Windows 10. Download:
