Unreal Integration

Studios around the world are increasingly using Unreal Engine to generate broadcast motion graphics, games, or other dynamic real-time content. This C4D integration with Unreal allows artists to easily include elements created with Cinema 4D's industry-leading MoGraph tools and to incorporate offline-rendered elements from Cinema 4D into their projects, using the reliable workflow they are used to.


Datasmith Import
Simply import your C4D files directly into Unreal. The Datasmith import uses the Cinema 4D installation already on your computer to dynamically import complete C4D scenes without the need to generate bulky caches that slow down your workflow. It keeps files small and enables you to create interactive projects for Unreal with ease.

Cineware Plugin
With the Cineware for Unreal plugin available from the Unreal Marketplace, you can adjust specific attributes within a Cinema 4D file directly within Unreal Engine. Adjust text and other scene settings within a panel or use the Blueprint editor and a simple click will reimport the Cinema 4D file with your changes applied.

Requirements
To take advantage of the advanced Cineware import options, an installation of Cinema 4D S24 SP1 or higher must be present on your system.

To update Cinema 4D content within Unreal Engine, the Cineware for Unreal plugin needs to be installed. Get it from the Unreal Marketplace and make sure to enable it in the Plugins list of your Unreal project.

Datasmith C4D Import comes as a part of Unreal Engine but must be enabled in the Unreal Plugins list for each project.
