What's New In S24
Maxon Cinema 4D S24
Cinema 4D Subscription Release 24 (S24) includes functionality 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 the continued progress on the Scene Nodes and Scene Manager interfaces to the new core.
Cinema 4D S24 Feature Highlight
Cinema 4D’s placement tools set the stage for creativity with intuitive and powerful tools for placing objects within a scene. Creating an environment, adding props and kitbashing is as simple as dragging-and-dropping objects onto one another, painting them onto a surface, or allowing them to fall into place with the help of dynamics.
The Asset Browser provides easy access to libraries of preset content stored locally or online, including a vast collection of 3D objects, materials and node capsules available to Cinema 4D subscribers. The library can be browsed or searched, and each asset includes rich metadata and keywords. Assets are downloaded on-demand, so there's no need to pre-download huge libraries of assets. They're also cached on your local computer, so your favorite assets are immediately available for re-use.
Experience first-hand how things are taking shape as work continues on Cinema 4D's new core. Cinema 4D’s Scene Manager uses powerful, node-based assets to construct procedural geometry or entire scenes in a hierarchy-based view. The Scene Manager will eventually offer a fast and creative workflow much like Cinema 4D’s Classic Object Manager, and you can easily integrate Classic C4D objects by simply dragging them into the Scene Manager. Everything you do within the Scene Manager creates a corresponding node graph within Scene Nodes, so you can choose whichever workflow you prefer or the job demands.
Cars can be characters too. The Car Rig Character Object Preset allows users to easily animate anything with four wheels. Just animate the car along a spline - the wheels roll properly, and the chassis drifts or tilts automatically based on the motion path and ground plane, so you can populate your scenes with realistic traffic or create spectacular car chases in just minutes
