CINEMA 4D R11 – Part 4: Architecture Edition is the fourth part of a multi-part review covering MAXTON's new CINEMA 4D Release 11's offerings. Because this product has so many items available for the user, I could not do it justice in a single review, so I will break it down in separate parts. This fourth one will cover the Architecture Edition, a special package that is intended for architectural renderings. (Note: you may need to update QuickTime before viewing the videos linked in this article, which you can do here)
As I said in my first installment, CINEMA 4D R11 is the latest release of the commercial cross platform, high-end 3D graphics application from MAXON. Because of it modularity, the core product gives you everything that you need to create high-end 3D images and animations. But when you need additional features, you can get those as well.
The Architecture Edition is focused on 3D rendering for the building design industry. It differs in that it is has many changes and presets that make creating architectural visualizations easier than ever. There are two ways to purchase this edition. The first is a standalone package that gives you all that you need to get going right away. This includes the core CINEMA 4D package introduced in part one of this series, then it also includes the Advanced Render module that I described in part two and the Sketch and Toon modules I talked about in part three. The second method is for those already own the Core module and want to add on the Architecture functionality. To use the Architecture Extension Kit, along with having the Core, you will also need the Advance Render and the Sketch and Toon modules which can be each purchased separately.
