What's New?

With the latest update, the Asset Browser now includes comprehensive support for browsing and adding Adobe Substance 3D materials as well as previewing assets by hovering over them directly. Improved integration tools feature enhanced glTF and USD support as well as a more robust connection to ZBrush, with Matcap and Dynamic Subdivision support added to the GoZ Bridge. Since September 2023, Cinema 4D 2024 delivers unmatched speed and performance for your most demanding creative scenes. Rigid body simulations can interact with all existing forces, pyro, fabrics and soft bodies. Collision detection of Rigid bodies include settings to define when they should rest. And damping behaviors allow for control over simulated objects. Pyro offers precise controls for artists to art direct their simulation and ensure it matches their vision. By adding the Pyro tag to standard particle emitters, thinking particle geometries and matrix cloners, they can emit Pyro. Deforming meshes can emit Pyro, drastically expanding artistic possibilities.

Award-Winning Mograph

MoGraph is a procedural modeling and animation toolset that gives motion designers the ability to quickly and easily create complex and abstract animations. At the heart of MoGraph is the Cloner object which allows you to duplicate objects in a variety of ways. Add MoGraph’s powerful collection of Effectors to the mix and you can put everything in limitless motion using sound, fracturing, fields, and so much more - often without creating a single keyframe! MoGraph is the go-to system for professional broadcast graphics designers and was recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with a Technical Achievement Award in 2019.
