Cinema 4D's extraordinarily powerful lighting system lets you adjust color, brightness, falloff and other properties. You can change density and color of each light's shadows, create visible or volumetric lights.
You can also assign an Area Light any shape in order to give your Project optimal lighting. Lights offer settings such as contrast, lens reflexes, shadow color, volumetric light and noise and many others.
Many light manufacturers offer IES data for free download to realistically simulate the look of the real lighting fixtures. Brightness, color temperature, falloff and direction are already included in IES lights to produce the most realistic lighting. Cinema 4D already includes several pre-defined, ready-to-go lamps.
