We are proud to announce the new Cinema 4D Release 18 (R18), with powerful and easily accessible tools that are tailored to the needs of creative professionals and help master the challenges of digital production for TV, film games, architecture, advertising and design:

Voronoi Fracture Object - A native feature in the MoGraph toolset in Cinema 4D that works seamlessly with Dynamics and lets users to tear down walls and create artistic procedural geometry using spline or polygon objects to define the fractured shape.

Interactive Knife Tools - Enables users to draw lines across a model and tweak the cut with an interactive preview, then lock in new edges or split based on the cut; knife tools are available as separate tools for easy access to each mode via shortcut or Commander.

Object Motion Tracking - The next evolution in MAXON's effort to give artists accessibility to dynamic VFX workflows with expanded tools for integrating Cinema 4D creations into real-world footage.

Shaders and Surface Effects - Offer advanced rendering possibilities for creating iridescent surfaces such as bubbles and oil slicks, for capturing shadows for more efficient compositing, parallax mapping for enhanced bump effects, and creating masks for worn edges using inverse ambient occlusion.

Substance Engine Integration - Download compiled Allegorithmic Substances and utilize them to surface your Cinema 4D objects. This fully integrated implementation offers outstanding workflow and flexibility, plus options to cache Substances on disk for better performance.

A detailed overview of Cinema 4D R18 with numerous example videos is available online at our What's New in R18site.
