Maxon Introduces Cinema 4D R10 Engineering Edition

Maxon Introduces Cinema 4D R10 Engineering Edition MAXON announces the immediate availability of its brand new CINEMA 4D R10 Engineering Edition.

This powerful software lets engineering professionals – even those with no graphics experience – quickly create high-end visualizations using their own CAD files. Improved scene management, a context-sensitive help system and an integrated preview renderer are only some of the numerous improvements users can take advantage of.


Companies such as Sony Imageworks, BBC and RTL value CINEMA 4D for its superb rendering, and manufacturers including BMW, Vitra, Siemens and Flextronics rely on CINEMA 4D when creating high-quality visualizations. No matter how large or small your company, the Engineering Edition and CINEMA 4D‘s Hollywood-proven rendering capabilities are the perfect combination for quickly creating breathtaking visualizations using CAD files.

User Interface The most important functions at a glance:

  • The user interface is optimized for the creation of CAD visualizations. The designing engineer can quickly create beautiful images and animations.
  • Comprehensive libraries containing materials and environment scenes make it easy to get high quality results, even without being a trained graphics artist!
  • In addition to photorealistic rendering, CINEMA 4D also lets designers give their 3D models an illustrated look. This look can range from “sketchy“ to very precise and detailed. Whats more, photorealistic and illustrated looks can be combined!
  • The CINEMA 4D render engine and the accompanying environment scenes have been fine-tuned for optimal performance and require only a fraction of the normal time to render.
  • A network renderer for up to 3 workstations is included for rendering larger animations. This network renderer is based on the common TCP/IP technology and requires no administrative changes to an existing network.

Environment Scenes The new Engineering Editions most important features:

  • The reworked scene management offers a better overview when working with larger, more complex projects, thus making it easier to locate objects.
  • The interactive content-sensitive help system offers complete and concise information about each individual function, right within CINEMA 4D. No additional software is required!
  • The powerful preview renderer renders quickly and in output quality, including reflections and transparencies. Either the entire viewport or only selected areas can be rendered.
  • Hundreds of additional new features can be seen in the reworked interface, improved OpenGL display, expanded animation functionalities and many more areas…
