Maxon Cinema 4D is a professional software package for creating 3D objects and scenes for

film, multimedia, visual effects, product design, architecture and engineering. The entire family of Maxon Cinema 4D products offers all possibilities for professional modeling, texturing, animation and rendering of images. Therefore, you are able to create animations in a stunning quality.

Photorealistic rendering, image composition of 3D content with real images, pre-visualization, photo-quality, authentic-looking material – these are all tasks photographers, architects and product designers are faced with in their daily use of Maxon Cinema 4D.

With the help of Maxon Advanced Renderer, the newly added Cinema 4D physical renderer, as well as the external render-engines such as VRAYforC4D absolutely realistic results are possible. Here, in most cases you will rely on Global Illumination (GI), a rendering method, which can indeed produce an extremely high image quality, but on the other hand is also technically demanding on the 3D artist. In this training you will learn how to use the right tools in order to achieve your desired results.
