Why Cinema 4D is Great for Motion Graphics?

Compared to the other 3D software, Cinema 4D studios and artists have the lion’s share in the industries that need motion graphics like advertising, commercials, video production, and films. This does not mean that the other 3d software such as Houdini, Maya, Max, and Blender, are not good. But cinema 4d was and is still the go-to 3d software for designers and studios. For today’s article, let’s figure out the reasons why we said Cinema 4D is great for motion graphics?

1. C4d Community

Cinema 4D artists are insanely helpful but not super focused on VFX or game development. But if you are going in the direction of motion design then you will not be disappointed because almost anything you want to do has been done, and any issue you face can be solved either through published content or by assisting questions. The Cinema 4d community is super responsive to whatever you need. And overall it is a very healthy community.

2. C4d Learning Resources

In the field of motion design, Cinema4d is, without doubt, the richest when it comes to content in the form of tutorials, courses, and they even have a cinema 4d university called Cinevercity. This is an educational program sponsored by Maxon for the benefit of students and teachers of 3D modeling, texturing, lighting, animation, and rendering. It focuses on bringing a variety of resources for learning Cinema 4D to users of the software. Also If you want to start learning cinema 4d you can go to their YouTube channel which also contains a lot of valuable resources.

3. Connectivity to After Effects

Since 2013, after effects artists started using Cineware which provided seamless integration of Cinema 4D assets into After Effects. Cineware not only lets you drag and drop native Cinema 4D files into After Effects but also gives you the ability to manipulate those 3D elements and render directly from within After Effects which is great. As a motion design artist, you can use Cineware to create new Cinema 4D scenes within After Effects CC and create all the 3D elements you need for your scene yourself. Which is a unique advantage: If you don’t own a Cinema 4D license, you automatically have access to Cinema 4D Lite, which is included with After Effects CO and contains important basic features that let you create your own 3D objects and scenes! Since after-effects is huge when it comes to 2d motion graphics, the collaboration between Adobe the developers of after-effects and Maxon the developers of cinema 4d makes using both of them for this type of work more attractive.

4. Native tools for motion graphics.

Maxon, the developers of Cinema 4d, always made sure to keep it the best and the most intultive software for motion graphics. As an example it has a set of ready tools called Mograph tools. These tools include Generators Cloners and Effectors. They are specifically designed to make the process of creating motion graphics, simple, easy, and accessible to most artists.

5. User friendly

Probably, You can get the most user-friendly experience with c4d if you are going to be a motion graphics artist because it was designed to help people get familiar with its 3d tools fast and start working on their projects. For example, there is Houdini which is also a popular software in advertising and motion graphics. Houdini and Cinema 4D are both used in the film industry. Cinema 4D is preferred for broadcast because the pace of graphics production is much faster in broadcast so you get good results quickly and short render times with Cinema 4D. Houdini for example is a more complicated software, a more complicated user interface, and a steeper learning curve. Switching from Houdini to C4D is easy, but from Cinema to Houdini is not so much because it is going to be a different story.

Final thought

Hope that these above reasons can partly help you to understand why Cinema 4D is so popular in the 3D software world and the strengths of this wonderful software.

Moreover, to help 3D artists have the most wonderful and effective experience on their workflow with Cinema 4D, iRender is proud to be one of the few render farms using the IaaS platform that provides most powerful and suitable configuration packages for Cinema 4D.

These configurations 6x RTX 2080Ti, 6x RTX 3080, and 6x RTX 3090 not only surpasses the minimum hardware requirements of Cinema 4D, but also exceed the recommended requirements. Cinema 4D users can rest assured because the Cinema 4D rendering process will be very smooth, fast and efficient. With just a few simple operations, you will quickly have quality 3D products at an affordable cost. You won’t have to worry about whether your machine is overloaded or not, maintenance costs, hardware failures and you don’t know who to go to for help. Or you won’t be concerned about whether your investment can catch up with today’s fast-growing technology. All you need to do is simply create an account, transfer data and connect to iRender’s highly configurable server system and render.

In addition, iRender also provides the Redshift license, one of the most powerful render engine integrated with C4d for Prime customers.

The other advantage that iRender can offer to Cinema 4D users with large-scale projects is the daily/weekly/monthly Fixed Rental package, which saves you up to 60% of the cost compared to the hourly rental. See more here.

With all the outstanding advantages mentioned above, you must have found yourself the perfect choice for your Cinema 4D artwork.
