C4D3D presents 3D Animation and images made with CINEMA 4D aka C4D

Cinema 4D or C4D by Maxon computers is a 3D animation program for rendering everything from architectural animations to special effects for movie, film and television.

Hi, this is Markus Rothkranz and this is some stuff I've made with the 3D app Cinema 4D, a great easy to use 3d modelling, texturing and animation program from a company in Germany called Maxon. It competes with other pro 3D apps like Maya, 3DS Max and Lightwave. I'm a filmmaker, not a full time die hard animator, so my stuff isn't as slick as the super pros, but then again my job is to hire those guys. But as an artist, I just LOVE 3D and this is one of my favorite programs. It's very dependable and well thought out. Most of my stuff is demos to help sell concepts to film investors, so they don't have to be super tight and realistic. Personally, I like the slightly stylized cartoony look. That's just my taste. Everything's getting so realistic nowadays. What's the fun if everyone thinks it's real and no one recognizes an artist or style. Anyway, I love to tinker and play around. This is one of those great 3D digital programs you can do that with. Below are some short animation samples or various things.
