LOS ANGELES — Maxon announced Cinema 4D Release 21 (R21) at SIGGRAPH this week, the next generation of its professional 3D modeling, animation and rendering software. Cinema 4D R21 introduces new capabilities, including a completely new Caps and Bevel system, new Field Force dynamics, interface speed enhancements and broader integration with popular hardware and software technologies.
R21 also introduces Maxon’s “3D for the Whole World” initiative, which aims to put professional 3D software within easy reach of every aspiring artist. This includes availability of a singular version of Cinema 4D, more efficient installation and licensing, and new low-entry subscription pricing.
Maxon CEO, David McGavran, explains “3D for the Real World” is not just Maxon’s slogan, but the central way they approach the market and the development of its products. Cinema 4D has long been heralded as the high-end 3D content creation solution that empowers the creative process – easiest to learn and easiest to use. Today, ‘easiest to acquire’ will be added to the software’s first-class reputation.
“With R21, we have overhauled virtually every aspect of how our customers choose, download, purchase, license and manage Cinema 4D,” McGavran continues. “The availability of a unified version of Cinema 4D will allow us to focus on developing one amazing 3D solution. Very attractive subscription pricing options ensure users around the world can easily access the most up-to-date 3D technology.”
The new price plan starts at $59.99 a month for a year commitment. A single month is 94.99 month, while a perpetual license is a one-time price of $3,495. Maxon is also offering bundles with Redshift for approximately $20 more per month ($81.99 for a year/per month or
one month $116.99).
