Eyedesyn is a motion graphics blog providing tutorials, tips, and resources to equip motion designers with the tools and knowledge to stay inspired. They offer various tools to help your 3D workflow easier, including Bendy Limbs Rig. Bendy Limbs Rig for Cinema 4D is an intuitive, simple, flexible, and fast way to rig and animate all types and styles of characters.
Let’s explore this amazing tool with iRender today.
Bendy Limbs Rig for Cinema 4D is the quickest and easiest way to rig and animate all types of cartoony bendy arm/rubber hose style characters. This is rigging for non-riggers, meaning you don’t have to worry about all those intimidating and complex rigging concepts.
You will get all them bendy arm/leg characters with separated limbs rigged in seconds by simply placing markers on your object to define where your characters’ body parts are, then add them to their corresponding body groups (head/torso/legs/feet/arms/hands). Then you are off and running animating your fully rigged 3D character.
This is a non-joint rig, so no laborious weight painting. Bendy Limbs Rig has already helped many folks who have never rigged nor animated a character in their life and given them the ability to easily rig their rubber hose style characters.
Bendy Limbs Rig utilizes the powerful C4D Character Object, meaning it works with CMotion to easily apply a walk cycle in a few clicks. You simply define your limb positions, press a single button to create your rig, drag & drop your separate limbs (head/torso/arms/hands/legs/feet) in their respective controllers. Then you are ready to animate your character.
This is the benefit of building a character with separated limbs and rigging with Bendy Limbs Rig vs. the traditional workflow of having a character made up of one mesh that relies on the laborious weighting and joint rigging workflow.
Aside from being able to easily rig up and animate your rubber hose/bendy limb style characters, there is a lot of added controls like the ability to adjust arm and leg bend sharpness, advanced controls for total control over the tapering & curvature across your characters arms, legs, torso, and head, as well as wrist bend and limb parenting controls.
In addition, Bendy Limbs Rig uses the powerful Character Object with full CMotion support to create an animated walk cycle to your characters.

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 3090/3080/2080Ti. Especially, NVIDIA RTX 3090 – the most powerful graphic card.
- 24 GB vRAM capacity, fitting to the heaviest images and scenes. NVLink/SLI 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.
Bendy Limbs Rig for Cinema 4D is an intuitive, simple, flexible, and fast way to rig and animate all types and styles of characters. 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 and Bendy Limbs Rig, our GPU accelerated servers will bring greater interactivity and speed to artist workflows.
