Review & Alternatives

"A easy to use professional 3D application."


Cinema4D is an industry-leading, powerful 3D rendering, modeling, and animation production suite. Since the first version was released in 1993, the software has since seen exponential success, becoming the standard for digital animation in the Windows operating system. Cinema4D has been used to create animated scenes and create enhanced special effects in a number of popular movies, including Spiderman 3, Inception, and Tron: Legacy.


The free version of Cinema4D installs quickly and easily, with a convenient setup wizard that guides you through the installation process. The software is compatible with all recent versions of Windows (XP and up).


With an extremely comprehensive feature set, the user interface is anything but simple. Not surprisingly, it can take many hours to truly master 3D rendering, which is why there are entire college courses that teach the art of digital animation. The core interface is a bit easier to use than the advanced modules (which can be purchased separately).


  • Supports advanced procedural and polygonal renditions, animations, textures, and models.

  • Powerful rendering features like sky simulation let you add exceptional detail to 3D environments.

  • Capable of simulating the movement and look of even the most minute objects, like hair.

  • Visual dynamic adjustments give you complete control over the perceived density of an object (i.e. – making something look soft or hard).

  • "Thinking Particles" technology uses sheer physics to determine the behavior of every aspect of an animation

  • A massive user community makes it easy to receive answers to any questions you may have.

  • Extensive animation toolset that makes procedural modeling and complex structural design a breeze

  • Dynamic PyroCluster feature accurately simulates the effects of fire and smoke

  • Accurate body/clothing movement simulation adds realism to every scene

  • Content browser complete with a powerful search engine and drag-and-drop model management capabilities

  • Detailed material editor gives you access to the most realistic textures and modeling features

  • Adjust lighting aspects to correct shadows and highlight certain aspects of the scene

  • Real-time feedback statistics help you analyze and tweak computer performance to suit your development needs


  • Keep in mind that this is a free, open-source version of the software that does not contain all of the complex features found in the entire suite. If you want the full functionality of the software, there are currently four variations of the Cinema4D suite available for purchase – Visualize (designed for architectural visualization), Broadcast (designed for graphics animations), Prime (the basic version) , and Studio (all-inclusive version).

  • Not very easy to learn.


While there are few software that can compete with Cinema4D in terms of features and functionality, there are a few notable alternatives including Blender, Maya, and 3ds Max. Of these, Blender is probably the most popular open-source alternative to Cinema4D.


If you're interested in becoming a professional graphics designer, special effects producer, visual architect, or 3D rendering specialist, learning how to use Cinema4D should be one of the first steps on your journey to success.
