Thea for Cinema4D

Thea for Cinema4D is the perfect companion for Cinema4D users who want the highest quality photorealistic rendering inside their modelling application. The plugin offers a list of advanced tools while being actively developed to meet the most demanding visualisation requirements.

Interactive Render: While Thea Render supports interactive render region in Cinema4D, it goes one step further with its own integrated darkroom, reacting much faster to user workflow.

Camera and material changes are optimised so as to give the best interactive experience.

Material Lab & Libraries: Thea for Cinema4D offers a variety of ways to add Thea Materials to your scene. You can create a new Thea material and edit it inside Cinema4D or you can open Thea Material Lab for enhanced visually material editing. Our high quality material libraries are ready to use and just a drag-and-drop away from the content browser to your models.

Instancing Support: Cinema4D offers various ways of instancing and we have paid attention to support them all, matching the native renderer. Whether you are using MoGraph cloners, arrays or render instances, the result will be always as it should be.

Animation: Thea Render can handle the animation rendering inside Cinema4D and render all the frames out-of-the-box. Furthermore, by supporting Team Render, one can distribute these frames over the network for ultra fast animation sequence rendering.  Accurate Motion Blur is fully supported for any animation produced in Cinema 4D (Camera, Mograph, Particle Emitters, Dynamics, e.t.c).

Render Channels: Thea Render supports a big variety of render channels such as Normal, Depth, Alpha,  Ambient Occlusion, Shadow and many more. These channels can be used to add various post process effects on the final rendered image.

Supported Plug-ins: Thea for Cinema4D can be used along with several  third party Cinema4D plugins in order to make workflow much easier for the end user. Among them Thea Render is working with: Laubwerk , Forester, X-Particles, HDR Light Studio, ThinkBox Deadline.

Export to Studio: While the integrated plugin will suffice in most cases, it also comes bundled with our Thea Studio, a dedicated standalone application for Thea Render, perfect for further scene staging and material/lighting tweaking.
