(NAB 2016) – Nvidia is now offering Iray for MAXON’s Cinema 4D, available now in the Nvidia Web store free for 90 days, then $295 per year thereafter with a node-locked or floating license.
Iray for Cinema 4D mades its first public appearance at the NAB show in the Maxon booth.
Nvidia’s suite of Iray plug-ins includes versions for leading 3D applications such as Autodesk’s 3ds Max and Maya. Iray for Cinema 4D gives 3D artists and designers ascalable and intuitive rendering experience — from scene inception all the way through post-production. With its Live rendering feature, the plug-in provides immediate visual feedback when lighting and designing a scene, making the entire look-development process extremely interactive and intuitive.
With Iray, users can employ the physically plausible material options of the Cinema 4D material nodes and shaders, and even add their own material designs and procedural functions using Nvidia Material Definition Language.
Iray for Cinema 4D supports the Nvidia vMaterials library,so artists can get started on day one with a verified set of physically based materials, as well as material exchange capabilities with other MDL-compatible applications. It also supports Iray Server, Nvidia’s distributed rendering solution that harnesses a network of machines to speed up the rendering process and make light work of your largest images.
