FRIEDRICHSDORF, GERMANY — Maxon (maxon.net) has announced Cinema 4D Subscription Release 22 (S22), the next generation of the company’s 3D application and first subscription-only release. S22 gives early access to performance and interactivity improvements, including UV unwrapping and editing tools, improved selection and modeling tool functionality, organizational licensing for volume customers, and updated viewport technology with support for Metal on MacOS. In addition, Maxon has boosted Cinema 4D’s pipeline compatibility with GLTF export, improved GoZ integration with Z-Brush, and support for node-based materials in FBX and Cineware.
Cinema 4D S22 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 S22, as well as additional enhancements. Cinema 4D S22 requires Windows 10 or MacOS 10.13.6 at minimum, and the latest 10.15 release for the best experience.
“In September last year, we introduced subscription-based options so we could offer professional 3D software at a significantly lower price. This also allows us to deliver more frequent improvements and enhancements to our subscription customers,” says Dave McGavran, Maxon CEO. “S22 offers subscription users early access to powerful solutions like the much-requested UV tools improvements and organizational license management for our volume customers. And yes, we will roll all these features and more into an upgrade later this year for our perpetual customers.”
