CINEMA 4D

CINEMA 4D Studio by MAXON is all about 3D modelling, animation and rendering. There are various versions of Cinema 4D with effects meant for specific industries such as broadcast motion graphics. Cinema 4D actually started out as a program for the Amiga back in the early 90s, but soon was ported to both Mac and Windows PC.

Cinema 4D as it stands today is packed with modern computer graphics features from advanced rendering methods such as global illumination and ambient occlusion to the simulation of hair, fur, grass and soft bodies. In fact, Cinema 4D is an essentially complete solution to nearly any type of CG or VFX application.

SPECIAL SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CINEMA 4D:

Because Cinema 4D is such a broad and versatile program it is difficult to recommend a single configuration that will work for every possible application. Clearly simply buying the fastest and most expensive workstation would work, but that is not the most efficient way to go about it. So there are different recommendations based on each use case.


Modeling and Animation only
Many artists who work on CG projects actually spend their time doing work that is complex, but does not require all that much actual computing grunt. If you are looking for workstations that are only meant to handle the basics of CG then these are all fine choices.


Titan C161

Intel i7 (the faster the better)
Nvidia Quadro P1000 or better

Modeling, Animation and Rendering by local CPU and GPUs
If your intended workload can also benefit significantly from GPU acceleration then you also want a workstation with one or (preferably) more GPUs to make short work of even the most complex scenes. Often you will only have a few of these running final renders, but they are worth every cent. If you are a solo operation that needs to do everything in the pipeline you definitely need one of these.
