Maxon Cinema 4D R18
We offer both authorised training courses and professional modelling project services for Cinema 4D but also the range of Maxon Cinema 4D software tools themselves which are available to XChange Training clients at a discounted price. Details on the key versions of Cinema 4D including Prime, Visualize, Broadcast and the fully comprehensive Studio are included below.
Cinema 4D Prime
Cinema 4D Prime is the entry version ideal for all graphic designers looking to add 3D to their toolset.
Cinema 4D Prime's intuitive interface is designed to ease you in to the powerful and exciting world of 3D graphics. With Cinema 4D Prime you can start creating great-looking 3D images in no time. And the tutorials provided help you learn Cinema 4D quickly and easily.
Adding Cinema 4D Prime to your existing pipeline of 2D applications opens up a wealth of new design possibilities. For example: turn 2D artwork into 3D elements using import options such as Illustrator or EPS, or simply combine images or movies with 3D objects. Cinema 4D Prime's powerful tools let you create images and animations for any industry. 3D logo, illustrations, buildings, space ships - whatever you want to create - you can rely on Cinema 4D Prime.
Cinema 4D Prime lets you cost-effectively enter the world of 3D. And if you want more advanced tools at a later
stage there is the option to upgrade.
Cinema 4D Visualize R18
Cinema 4D Visualize provides everything you need to produce fantastic images and animations quickly, easily and to any level of realism.
Cinema 4D Visualize gives you a comprehensive suite of modelling and texturing tools and rendering options. Features included are Global Illumination, Physical Sky, sketch-style rendering and huge librairies of 3D scene
fillers, textures, lighting environments, and much more.
Cinema 4D Visualize has a massive range of import options that let you work with models from a large variety of 2D and 3D applications and file formats, including PSD, JPEG, DWG, IGES, VRML, OBJ and many more. There is file exchange support for many leading 3D CAD applications such as VectorWorks, ArchiCAD and Allplan.
You can create simple walk-throughs and stills in Visualize but you can also create breathtakingly realistic visual animations - in ways not possible in the real world. Cinema 4D Visualize breaks through the limits of your own imagination.
Cinema 4D Broadcast R18
Cinema 4D Broadcast creates dynamic broadcast graphics quickly and easily and is ideal for motion graphics artist looking to add 3D to their existing suite of tools.
Cinema 4D Broadcast contains all the features of Cinema 4D Prime as well as specific tools for creating motion graphics, including industry-leading cloning tools, advanced rendering options such as Global Illumination, a high-end library packed with 3D models, cameras, lighting setups, video clips, and much more. If you are already familiar with 2D motion graphics software you already have an advantage! Cinema 4D Broadcast contains many common elements - and that flattens the learning curve!
Cinema 4D's powerful export options allow multi-layer image export directly into popular compositing software such as After Effects, Motion, Final Cut Pro, Combustion and others. The huge array of options let you have complete control over the images and animations you export.
Cinema 4D Studio
Cinema 4D Studio is the full package containing all the tools you need to tackle even the most complex
Cinema 4D Studio includes all the 3D power available for professional 3D artists. If you want to create advanced 3D graphics but need a helping hand to ensure you create jaw-dropping graphics quickly and easily, then this is the choice for you.
As well as containing all of the features found in Cinema 4D Prime, Visualize and Broadcast, Cinema 4D Studio
adds advanced character tools, hair, a physics engine and an unlimited client network for rendering. The result is that Cinema 4D Studio can tackle any project you throw at it with ease.
Cinema 4D Studio's character tools make it easy to create character rigs and advanced character animations. Adding hair or fur to characters is fast and simple with a powerful suite of hair tools that let you grow, comb, style and animate. The physics engine makes it simple to perform complex collisions and interaction between objects, be it just a few or thousands. Network rendering allows you to take advantage of all computers on your network to help render your animations faster.
Despite being designed for advanced 3D, the extra tools found in Cinema 4D Studio are still designed to be user-friendly and intuitive. Generating advanced 3D effects such as hair is surprisingly easy and fast, with Cinema 4D doing much of the work for you. For example, hair will automatically swoosh and sway as you move your character around; and making thousands of objects collide with each other only takes a few mouse clicks to set up.
Cinema 4D Studio lets you unleash your creativity and enjoy 3D without limits.
Modelling: Cinema 4D Studio can import and export a variety of file formats, which lets you integrate it in almost any pipeline. The modelling toolset lets you work with parametric or polygonal objects, subsivision surfaces and all types of deformers and modifiers. Cinema 4D's non-linear modelling lets you modify parametric objects at any time and is lightweight and fast.
Materials and Textures: Cinema 4D offers all standard and advanced options for creating the perfect surface for your models. Materials have 14 different channels and you can even customize channels for specific needs (e.g. game engines). Use images or movies as textures or advanced shaders such as Subsurface Scattering or Backlight. Cinema 4D offers an industry-standard 3D painting toolset for high-end texturing.
Animation: When it comes to animation, Cinema 4D Studio is a Jack of all trades. Of course it features all of the standard animation tools you would expect from a high-end 3D package.
Lighting and Rendering: Cinema 4D Studio offers a wide variety of light and shadow types that can brighten up even the most challenging situations. The render engine takes control of all available processor cores to get high-quality results as quickly as possible.

I've been on several courses at XChange Training in London and each one has been excellent. The centre itself is very easy to get to from Farringdon station with superb facilities and a free lunch voucher is included on each visit too!
