MAXON today announced the immediate availability of Cinema 4D Release 16 (R16), the next generation release of the company’s industry-leading 3D software.
In addition to countless workflow enhancements, Cinema 4D R16 delivers powerful new features including a modeling PolyPen ‘super-tool’, a Motion Tracker for easily integrating 3D content within live footage and a Reflectance material channel for multi-layered reflections and specularity.
Release 16 reinforces MAXON’s commitment to provide creative professionals with stability, performance, unmatched integration, and a straightforward interface to optimize any workflow.
Release 16 provides features and enhancements for users at every skill level and discipline,” Manuel Casasola Merkle, Partner and Creative Director at Aixsponza states. “Even as members of the beta testing team, we found R16 incredibly stable and utilized it on the new ‘Dreadnought’ game trailer. The new PolyPen tool especially speeds up modeling tremendously which allowed us to achieve higher quality results in less time. R16 is a must-have upgrade!”
Impress clients with the new Reflectance channel in Cinema 4D R16, which lets you create multi-layered materials and surfaces with breathtaking quality. You will discover new possibilities for creating complex materials ranging from beautiful car lacquer to a wide range of textile surfaces.
A precise camera reconstruction is essential for combining 3D elements with live footage for realistic-looking results. The new Motion Tracker lets you do this with just a few clicks of the mouse.
With the newly developed, multi-functional PolyPen tool – a perennial “Swiss knife” for modelers – you can intuitively paint polygons in 3D space!
The sculpting toolset in Cinema 4D R16 has been enhanced with many new and optimized tools, which makes this feature even more flexible to use and makes the tools even easier to control. High-res sculpting meshes can be imported from external applications and easily converted to low-res Cinema 4D objects with Sculpt tags, without sacrificing detail.
