Cinema 4D IN ANIMATED FILMS

Where Pixels Sing and Polygons Dance

From passion project short films to Hollywood blockbusters, animated films are the ultimate creative expression. Combine your creativity with Cinema 4D’s intuitive tools to add life to characters and transform your imagination into imagery.

ALL YOU NEED IN ONE PACKAGE

Character Object

Cinema 4D’s Character object allows you to focus on the artistry of animation rather than complex rigging techniques. Quickly build a rig for any character, based on expertly-crafted preset templates for bipeds, quadrupeds, fish and more. Adjust rig components to the character’s dimensions, bind the skeleton to the model, and you’re ready to animate.

Animation

Set keyframes by simply clicking the animation dot next to each parameter, or use automatic keyframing. Tweak your animation in the PowerSlider immediately below your 3D view or open multiple Timeline windows to adjust dope sheet timing and animation curves. Utilize Motion Tracks to group animations as clips and mix them in non-linear fashion. Cinema 4D’s fast animation system makes it easy to put things into motion.

Deformers

With deformers you can adjust the shape of Cinema 4D objects in a non-destructive way. It’s easy to tweak and animate objects by adding simple bends or twists, or applying Jiggle, Squash & Stretch or Displacement. With the Mesh Deformer you can animate a proxy cage and apply that animation to a high-resolution model. The Collision Deformer modifies geometry based on object collisions. You can even stack deformers to achieve complex effects with minimal effort and maximum flexibility.
