Maxon recently announced Cinema 4D Subscription Release 24 (S24). The latest subscription-only release of Maxon’s 3D application allows users to easily browse and obtain models, materials and other assets, and to intuitively place them within the scene. The release also includes key workflow enhancements and a sneak peek at continued progress on the Scene Nodes and Scene Manager interfaces to the new core. Cinema 4D S24 is immediately available for subscription customers. For perpetual license holders of Cinema 4D a release is scheduled later this year that will incorporate the features of S24, as well as future enhancements.
“S24 showcases what Maxon always strives to offer our subscribers – exceptional and innovative workflow matched with leading-edge core technology,” said Dave McGavran, Maxon CEO. “The new Asset Browser in combination with the Placement Tools provides a playful workflow that empowers creativity. And the advancements to the node-based system offers glimpses into the powerful and promising future of Cinema 4D.”
S24 Feature Highlights
- Placement Tools: Cinema 4D S24 sets the stage for creativity with intuitive and powerful tools for placing objects within a scene. Creating an environment, adding props and creative exploration is as simple as dragging-and-dropping objects onto one another, painting objects onto a surface, or allowing objects to fall into place with the help of dynamics.
- New Asset Browser: Makes it easy to find and use models, materials and other assets in your 3D scenes. Browse and search online or local asset databases, including a vast library of assets available to C4D subscribers. Assets are organised with rich metadata and keywords and are downloaded and cached locally on demand.
- Animation Workflow Enhancements: Cinema 4D S24 adds more powerful animation workflow enhancements and builds upon the success of character animation features introduced in R23. Everyone who creates keyframes will enjoy improved curve evaluation and other workflow enhancements, while Character Animators will enjoy even more powerful retargeting and pose workflows.
- Scene Manager/Scene Nodes: Experience first-hand how things are taking shape as work continues on Cinema 4D’s new core. Cinema 4D S24 introduces the Scene Manager, the spiritual successor to Cinema 4D’s Classic Object Manager. Use powerful node-based assets to construct procedural geometry or entire scenes in this new hierarchy-based view or view the same objects in a continually evolving Scene Nodes editor.
Cinema 4D S24 can be downloaded immediately and is available for both macOS and Windows.
