TEAM RENDER Ė THE NETWORK RENDERING REVOLUTION!
CINEMA 4D R15 - the ultimate team player to render high-res stills and animations. With CINEMA 4D R15 Team Render you can easily exploit all the excess processing power in your local network to quickly preview scenes and render high-resolution stills or final animations.
Team Render is a groundbreaking new approach to network rendering that minimizes setup time and maximizes performance using a peer-to-peer architecture and automatic discovery of render clients via Bonjour. Click to add computers to your team, and quickly distribute complex render tasks across your entire network.
Quickly preview scenes by sending the results of the Team Render directly to the Picture Viewer, or batch multiple jobs with the Render Queue. Either way, Team Render can be managed completely within the CINEMA 4D interface.
Peer-to-Peer Performance Team Render is an all-new network rendering concept that uses peer-to-peer communication to distribute render tasks. Because there's no bottleneck at a central server, the assets required to render your scene get to each client quicker. This means clients spend time rendering instead of waiting for assets.
Render 1000 Frames, or just 1 Utilize the power of your team to easily render the frames of an animation or to distribute the buckets of a still frame. Machines share the workload to calculate caches for Global Illumination, Ambient Occlusion and Subsurface Scattering so you can utilize advanced rendering features and still meet the deadline.
* The speed comparison was made using a typical network environment to better simulate a normal office network situation. The clients consisted of computers ranging from quad-core Windows PCs (2.5 GHz) to a 24-core Mac Pro (2.66 GHz). The results cannot be applied 1:1 to other networks but are a good reflection of the increase in speed that can be expected.
REALISTIC LOOK, REALISTIC TIMES: RENDERING IN RELEASE 15
New GI and AO options make it easy to achieve the desired look. You'll enjoy powerful enhancements to Global Illumination and the Physical Render engine in CINEMA 4D R15 Broadcast, Visualize and Studio, as well as improved Ambient Occlusion and multi-threading in all CINEMA 4D versions.

All this is perfectly integrated into CINEMA 4D and offers a fast and easy workflow. All functions are completely interactive and non-destructive.
Quick and Easy to Use At the heart of MoGraph is a powerful yet simple Cloner tool. You can easily create live copies of any object - arranged along a line, circle, grid, object or spline. Object clones can be placed along points, edges, polygon centers or randomly across the surface of an object. Adjust keyframe parameters to modify clone count, spacing and more. Use other objects in MoGraph to easily create extruded text, fracture and extrude spline-based logos, displace objects in real-time and more. Each object performs its own invaluable function for motion graphics artists, and each can be fully controlled by MoGraph Effectors. Effectors can be applied to almost any MoGraph Generator to effortlessly bring your MoGraph creations to life. Adjust clones mathematically with the Formula Effector or apply the frequency of an audio file using the Sound Effector. Eleven different Effectors can be used in any combination to offer countless animation possibilities.
Dynamics System for Stunning, Realistic Motion MoDynamics is based on the proven Bullet physics library and now you can ALSO use MoGraph's powerful Effectors to add dynamics for amazing realism. Set simple parameters like Mass, Bounce, Gravity, Friction and more and let MoDynamics do the work. Create breathtaking, realistic motion every time.
LET THERE BE LIGHT
CINEMA 4D offers a complete array of gaffer's tools so you can make your scene outshine the competition. Various types of light and shadow calculations provide the basis for an extraordinarily powerful lighting system. Control color, brightness, falloff and other properties, and adjust the density and color of each light's shadows. You can also use Lumen or Candela brightness values for any light rather than using abstract percentage values. Create visible or volumetric lights with noise patterns that appear in the light cone. Lights offer settings such as contrast, lens reflexes, shadow color, volumetric light and noise, and many more.
Physical Render Engine Render with ultimate realism using the new Physical Render Engine in CINEMA 4D. Use real camera settings like shutter speed and aperture to view the Project through the lens - with 3D depth of field, motion blur and more.
Render advanced effects like blurry reflections, Area shadows and Ambient Occlusion along with accurate depth of field and motion blur. The Physical Rendererís shared image sampler samples the Project just once and shares the result between all these effects, reducing the incremental time required to render each effect and guaranteeing accurate results as the effect combine with one another.
The Physical Renderer in CINEMA 4D R15 uses Intelís Embree raytracing engine whose highly optimized algorithms increase render power by up to 300% - without any reduction in image quality! The more complex a scene is, the more you get out of this increased power, regardless of which processor youíre using!
More Photorealism Achieve an even more photorealistic look with the new, physically correct depth of field effect, which also lets you render objects that lie behind transparent surfaces. The new Physical Renderer now renders these objects directly in the image and not as a post effect.
Accurate 3D Motion Blur Produce accurate 3D motion blur based on real optical parameters. Rotational motion is blurred properly because the full 3D animation data is used, and because the blur is produced at render time rather than as a post effect, it interacts properly with shadows, transparency and other Project elements.
Physical Camera Imitate a photo or movie camera using focal length, f-stop and shutter speed or angle to dial in the depth of field and motion blur. You can optionally define the ISO or Gain, which combines with other camera settings to define the image's exposure. Simulate other flaws of real-life cameras such as lens distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration for the ultimate photorealism.
Stereoscopy Create eye-popping stereo 3D visuals using the complete stereoscopic workflow in CINEMA 4D Release 13. Easily convert existing projects or create new stereo scenes using a few simple camera settings, and preview the stereo effect within the Viewport. Render the merged image or individual channels and preview the stereo effect within CINEMA 4Dís Picture Viewer.
Stereo Camera and Rendering A few simple settings convert any CINEMA 4D camera into a stereo rig. Simply enable one of the stereo modes, define the eye-separation and convergence, and choose between parallel, off-axis, on-axis or radial placement. Safe regions can be defined manually or defined automatically by CINEMA 4D.
Real-time Stereo Display Preview stereo effects in real-time by enabling the Stereoscopic mode for any view. Stereo previews can be displayed in Anaglyph, Side-by-Side, Interlaced or Active Shutter mode for compatibility with a variety of 3D monitors, projectors and glasses.
Rendering With support for multiple processors, HyperThreading and Multi-core technology, CINEMA 4D squeezes every ounce of rendering power out of your computer.
Easily render color, shadow, reflection and other effects to individual files for tweaking using your favorite compositing application. CINEMA 4D also supports rendering in 16-bit and 32-bit per color channel for high dynamics range images in DPX, HDRI or OpenEXR format.
Global Illumination Achieve greater rendering realism with Global Illumination, which provides a more accurate representation of scene lighting by taking into account light that bounces between objects. The Global Illumination engine can also utilize an HDRI-based sky for outstanding image-based illumination.
CINEMA 4D has long offered irradiance caching as faster alternative to the render-intensive but extremely precise QMC method for Global Illumination (GI). A newly developed Irradiance Cache algorithm now delivers much better results in even less time! Caches are calculated per frame, which eliminates pre-calculation of the entire animation and delivers much faster feedback. And peer-to-peer distribution of animations to clients across a network has been made easier with Team Render.

Generally speaking, CINEMA 4D and BodyPaint 3D support all OpenGL 2.1-capable graphics cards. Nevertheless, we recommend using a dedicated 3D graphics card with an AMD or NVIDIA chip set. High-performance graphics chips are currently already available in mid-range laptops.
Make sure that you always use the most current certified graphics card driver (no beta versions).
To find out more about processing speed, CINEBENCH test results can be found online.
Important notice - MAXON is not responsible for the compatibility of individual graphics cards with the OpenGL mode. Due to the large number and types of available chip sets, operating systems and driver versions we cannot guarantee the compatibility of all systems.
The technical specifications of MAXON products are constantly changing. Please use the most current demo version of the software to test its compatibility on your computer.
Regarding NVIDIA 3D Vision
A quad buffered graphics card is required to use NVIDIA's 3D Vision Shutter glasses for viewing the stereoscopic display in CINEMA 4D.
