Cinema 4D by Maxon is a powerful software for 3D modeling, animation, simulation, and rendering. The best thing is that we can add Cinema 4D Plugins to extend its potential further with additional functionalities. These plugins will help us save time and work more productively.
In previous articles, we have explored various Cinema 4D plugins with different developers and different use. Today, we will find out about 5 awesome plugins that not only improve the workflow but also they are free of charge. Let’s begin!
Divider is a Cinema 4D fragmentation plugin developed by Aleksei Karpik. This free tool can help you create amazing procedural subdivisions on the polygon. Divider are able to create style topology, looping animation with just simple steps. Lots of artists around the world use this plugin not only use on Instagram posts but also for commercial purposes. Divider plugin supports R16+ version.
Gelatine is a free plugin created by Code Vonc. It has a lot of options that allow you to create flabby and elastic effects, work with multiple objects, set handle points and specify which parts of the object should wobble and which one should be stiffer. It has also many other settings that you can control such as the deformer intensity, the internal and external radius falloff, the elasticity of the object, the absorption value and angle, and much more.
Hot4D by Drew Whitehouse is an ocean and wave generator plugin for Cinema 4D. It allows you to generate an ocean surface on objects within C4D. This plugin contains different settings that control wind speed, wave height, choppiness and other generating foam settings. With Hot4D plugin you will be able to create very realistic renders.
NetCreator is an open-source Cinema 4D plugin for generating objects inside C4D. It has a user-friendly interface, you can easily generate splines on one object or between two objects.
This handy tool has many useful features. It supports polygonal objects, thinking particles and MoGraph objects. It has distance and visibility control which allows you to randomly remove points that are used to generate splines. You can also use the “Propagation for VertexMap” feature to get an animating vertex map for other purposes in Cinema 4D. There are many other features to be discovered and they are really worth giving a shot.
If you are a motion graphics artist then Motion Drop from My Motion Graphics is one of the good tools you need to take a look at. It is a free and useful plugin for motion artists. Motion Drop will allow you to create organic cartoon drops and sweeping lines. Actually, with minimum effort, you can create up to 6 drops that can randomly move around each other with an organic feel. You can also change their overall Radius and length, their speed, and the seed of their generators which gives you endless animation possibilities.
iRender is a GPU-Acceleration Cloud Rendering Service for Multi-GPU Rendering with Powerful Render Nodes: 2/4/6/8x RTX 3090, provides high computing performance on the model of IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service). Cinema 4D users can easily choose their machine configuration from recommended system requirements to high-end options, which suit all your project demands and will speed up your rendering process many times.
- Single and Multi-GPU servers: 1/2/4/6/8x RTX 3090 – the most powerful graphics card.
- 24 GB vRAM capacity, fitting to the heaviest images and scenes. NVLink requested for bigger vRAM.
- A RAM capacity of 128/256 GB.
- Storage (NVMe SSD): 512GB/1TB/2TB.
- Intel Xeon W-2245 or AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX CPU with a high clock speed of 3.90GHz.
Let’s see rendering tests with Cinema 4D and Octane, Redshift on servers 6x RTX 3090 at iRender:
iRender provides high-end configuration at a reasonable price. You can see that iRender’s package always costs much cheaper than packages of other render farms (in performance/price ratio). Moreover, iRender’s clients will enjoy many attractive promotions and discounts.
For Cinema 4D users with large-scale projects, iRender offers the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly Fixed Rental packages, which saves you up to 30% of the cost compared to the hourly rental. Please read more about our Fixed rental service here.
To reduce the rendering time more, users can run multiple machines at the same time. You can use the machines separately or connect them by using Thinkbox Deadline. iRender provides Redshift license, Thinkbox Deadline license for Prime customers. Users, who recharge enough points to become Prime customers, will not only be able to use Redshift/Thinkbox Deadline license without usage or maintenance costs, but also enjoy a lot of exclusive benefits.
In addition, users can request extra services to make full use of iRender servers, for example, expand image threshold, increase the size of network drive (Z:), open port, install NVLink, and change hardware. Surprisingly, you get all of these services for free.
In this article, we bring to you 5 free awesome plugins for Cinema 4D that will help you to create beautiful artwork more easily and faster. With all the outstanding advantages mentioned above, you must have found yourself the perfect choice for Cinema 4D projects. We believe together with Cinema 4D, our GPU accelerated servers will bring greater interactivity and speed to artist workflows. What users can get from iRender is not only the best quality products but also the high security and the most comfortable render time.
So, do not hesitate anymore, let’s REGISTER for an account today to get a FREE COUPON to experience our service and reach a new level of cloud rendering.
Thank you & Happy Rendering!
