Maxon has announced that the new release of Cinema 4D (17) is now available for everyone to purchase, install, and start generating awesome animations.
From the press release:
Cinema 4D R17 delivers powerful new features to dramatically increase production pipeline performance and positively impact the creative experience including the new Take System that offers functions above and beyond those of any conventional render layer system; Render Tokens to easily organize rendering tasks and files, with project-file-based names, named object buffers, and folders for each pass; a versatile new Color Chooser; and updated import and export functions. R17 also sports innovative sculpting functions, expanded motion tracking features and completely reworked spline tools that enhance the modeling, sculpting and animation design workflow.
Earlier this month Sean Frangella ran through the top five new features of the software that make the upgrade (or new purchase) worth it.
I do not have the update as of yet, I’m hoping Maxon will send a review copy my way, as there are some new updates to the tracking features that should make using the feature easier.
