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 gives 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.

Licence Type

Cinema 4D Short-Term licences come in two types:

  • Single-Seat - These licences can be installed on a single machine only.
  • Multiple-Seat - These licences can be installed on as many machines in one location as you like. Licences are authorised by a MAXON Licence Server which needs to be purchased separately here.

Run Time

Cinema 4D Short-Term licences can be purchased for a run time of three or six months.

Upon expiry, the product will stop working, although you can extend the licence by a further three or six months, or upgrade to a full perpetual licence. This version comes as electronic download only.

After successful completion of your order, MAXON will manually send you a download link and your serial number. Please note this is not an instant process.

Please also note that short-term licences stay on the release you have purchased. If a new release of Cinema 4D comes out, your licence is not upgraded to that release.
