Cinema 4D SuperMeet 2018 – the Biggest User Meeting

We’re having a very special user meeting to celebrate two important birthdays – Cinema 4D Release 20 and 10 years of user meetings!

November 1 + 2, 2018 need to be reserved on the calendar of all Cinema 4D users and artists from the creative industry: instead of the usual “small” user meetings, this year we’re inviting you to the Cinema 4D SuperMeet at the Gesellschaftshaus in the Palmengarten in Frankfurt, Germany. In a very special atmosphere we will offer visitors high-end 3D in all its facets.

Don’t miss these highlights:


  • Presentations from over 15 internationally-known speakers, including Jeremy Cox (ex-Imaginary Forces), Michaeljohn Day (ManvsMachine), Danny Ivan and Raphael Rau
  • Workshops with experienced professionals who will offer insights into their workflows with Cinema 4D, After Effects, Photoshop and other tools – including tips and tricks
  • Take your career to the next level in the recruiting area with veterans from top companies or with a portfolio check with value tips from experienced artists
  • Enjoy our entertainment area with the newest gadgets such as VR installations, gaming apps, laser cutter, 3D printers and much more
  • DevKitchen for plug-in developers with special presentations all about APIs, Python and the chance to network with the MAXON SDK Team
  • Network with speakers, colleagues, friends and new acquaintances
  • Huge Get-together party on Thursday evening


Please note: Presentations will be held in German and English. Detailed information is available in the agenda.

The Cinema 4D SuperMeet speaker:

Cold drinks and hot prizes

A day full of inspiration demands a worthy conclusion, which is why we’ll be celebrating with drinks, snacks and music on Thursday evening at a bar in downtown Frankfurt. On Friday evening we’ll conclude the SuperMeet with a cool after work beer in the Palmengarten Gesellschaftshaus and send everyone off into the weekend at 6 pm.

You will have the chance to win great prizes, including software licenses, tutorials and more from well-known software and hardware manufacturers.

Shooting star Merk Vilson will give each participant free access to his plug-ins and premium tutorials on Patreon.
