MAXON presents their outstanding 3D animation software: Cinema 4D. Available in an array of licence types and versions, Cinema 4D caters for most budgets and needs, whether you're a professional 3D artist or just starting out. This listing is for a short-term licence which runs for 3 or 6 months. If you'd rather a perpetual licence, click here.

Renowned for ease-of-use, stability and professional, high-quality results, Cinema 4D is relied on by hundreds of thousands of 3D artists around the globe. Cinema 4D's powerful, varied toolset ensures that you can tackle any task imaginable. Whether you're into motion graphics, architectural or product visualisation, illustration, visual effects, games, or anything else, you'll find that you can always rely on Cinema 4D to get the job done.

Short-Term Licence Benefits

Short-Term licences have two key benefits:

  • They allow you to toe-dip into 3D - Fully investing in a perpetual licence is a considerable outlay. Short-Term allow you access to the software at a much cheaper initial cost.
  • They can be upgraded to Perpetual - If you decide that Cinema 4D is right for you and you want to use it long-term then you can upgrade to a perpetual licence. This allows you to use around 75% of your short-term licence fees towards a perpetual licence.

  • Version

    Cinema 4D is available in four different versions, which appeal to different 3D artists and budgets. However only Prime & Studio are currently available on Short-Term Licences.

    • Prime - provides a core arsenal of tools, which lets you take on a wide variety of 3D projects.
    • Broadcast - has all the features of Cinema 4D Prime, plus enhanced rendering with Physical Renderer, powerful cloning, motion graphics tools and a high-end content library packed with 3D models, materials, cameras, lighting setups, video footage and scenes. It also contains Team Render (3 nodes) for network rendering.
    • Visualize - has all the features of Cinema 4D Prime, plus enhanced rendering (Physical Renderer), IES lights, state-of-the-art sketch and art rendering (Sketch and Toon modes) as well as a packed content library. It also contains Team Render (3 nodes) for network rendering.
    • Studio - contains all the features found in Cinema 4D Prime, Visualize and Broadcast, plus advanced character tools, hair, a physics engine and Team Render (unlimited nodes) for network rendering. The result is that Cinema 4D Studio can tackle any project you throw at it with ease.

    Note: The above covers major differences only. If you are looking for a particular feature, check out the Product Comparison Guide to make sure your chosen product includes the features you require.
