Cinema 4D Release 18 puts powerful new tools in the hands of motion graphics artists, and makes VFX workflows accessible to everyone. Game designers and visualization professionals enjoy new opportunities, and workflow, modeling, animation and shader enhancements help elevate every Cinema 4D artist to a new level.
With the new Voronoi Fracture object you can tear down walls. Systematically shatter any object into procedural fragments using virtually anything to control the distribution of the shattered pieces. Create artistic procedural geometry using splines, polygon objects or particles. Fracture Voronoi is always live which means you can change elements at any time. As a native MoGraph object it works seamlessly with Dynamics and all the effectors and falloffs you love.
It Slices, it Dices
Cinema 4D Release 18 truly is a cut above the rest with its all-new interactive knife tools. The new Line Cut tool lets you draw cuts across one or even multiple objects and tweak them on-the-fly with an interactive preview. You can then lock in new edges, remove parts or split objects based on the cuts you made. With the new Plane Cut tool you can create new edges using the Local, World or Camera axes, or draw a line to define the plane and adjust the position and rotation of the cut numerically or with a viewport manipulator. The Loop/Path Cut tool creates symmetrical loops or paths based on a proportional or absolute distance to the surrounding edges, and preserves curvature when creating new edges. All three new tools are available as separate commands so you can easily access the desired mode via shortcut or Commander.
Integrate your Cinema 4D creations into real-world footage with Object Tracking, the next step in MAXON’s efforts to make VFX workflows and tools accessible to everyone. Reconstruct the motion of the camera and any number of objects to transform a video file into a 3D world. Add 2D User Tracks for the object's key features of and assign them to the Object Tracker – then reconstruct the object based on just the tracks or with the help of reference geometry. You can now seamlessly integrate any number of 3D objects into real-world footage with ease.
Shaders & surface effects
New shaders and shading options offer advanced rendering possibilities in Cinema 4D Release 18. With the Thin Film shader you can reproduce the iridescent rainbow effects of bubbles and oil slicks, or simply add fingerprints and oily residue to any surface. Inverse Ambient Occlusion can be used to create masks for worn edges or to imitate subsurface scattering for faster rendering results. The Shadow Catcher shader offers a convenient way to capture shadows and ambient occlusion from 3D objects so they can be easily composited over real-life footage.
It's all about workflow
Cinema 4D has always offered a fast and intuitive workflow, and Release 18 offers new tools with clearly arranged and easy-to-learn interfaces. Your window to the 3D world has been given a dramatic facelift with viewport enhancements, including Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, Viewport Tessellation for Displacement preview, and a preview mode for multi-layered reflectance.

People who like movies - doubt about it, but not everyone likes the laborious work of shooting and editing their feature films.
Below are introductions of the best free video editing software available for Windows and MacOS (here for checking for free photo editors!)! Now it is possible to lead the existence of Michael Khan, Tahma Shahn Maker, Arthur Schmidt to a nonexistent budget. Ready, set, edit
Apple's iMovie has been the longest among consumer video editors. It's all bundled with the new Mac and boasts serious practicality for daily users. The latest version of this software allows you to import and edit 4K video clips from a variety of external devices such as smartphones and GoPro cameras and enjoy an attractive and navigable clean interface. It will be even more convenient if you start editing on iPhone or iPad and you can edit on Mac. Apart from video, you can also incorporate images and audio into your project simply by dragging the desired multimedia into the project area and placing it like a timeline. The created video can be previewed in real time at any time before exporting the file directly to YouTube, Facebook, and other rich platforms, and you can preview the themes, texts, music, voice-over and other effects at any time. Recent other features include basic audio editor, the option to create a preview of the application you have developed, and the ability to complete your own movie trailer with transitions and end credits. Although this is not attractive in terms of video editing, it is perfect for home videos and minor projects. Consider combining with free recording software!
