CINEMA 4D R13 New Features

with Rob Garrott

Video: Welcome

Hi! I am Rob Garrott and I'd like to welcome you to CINEMA 4D R13 New Features. We're going to explore some key changes to my favorite 3D animation package CINEMA 4D. We'll start off by looking at the interface and how it's changed from version 12. Next, we will take a look at the render engine enhancements. The Physical Render Engine is a huge addition to R13 and it allows for very realistic camera effects like motion blur and depth of field. The character tools have been dramatically enhanced with a new Character and CMotion objects that help you create character rigs and get them moving in no time at all.

This course spotlights the R13 update for MAXON CINEMA 4D, which includes some key improvements in the rendering, shader, and character tools. Author Rob Garrott shows animators how to find their way around the interface, and demonstrates features such as the Physical Render engine, with its camera and depth of field and motion blur controls; the CMotion system for creating parametric movement; and the new and revised shaders. The course also covers the streamlined workflow for Adobe After Effects Exchange and the new file format options OpenEXR and Xref.

Topics include:
  • Comparing the menus, viewports, and other interface differences
  • Enabling progressive rendering with the Physical Render engine
  • Building and applying rigs with the character object
  • Working with the new Collision Deformer
  • Using the new shaders: Mograph Multi Shader, subsurface scattering, brick, and more
  • Embracing the new stereoscopic workflow
