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.
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.
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.
