Licence Options

Cinema 4D is now available as a downloadable subscription.

Monthly and Annual Licence:

Cinema 4D licences are available as monthly and annual subscriptions and can easily be downloaded. It includes the current version of Cinema 4D and has complete access to the Cineversity training and plugin library.

You can also purchase a monthly or annual subscription to Cinema 4D bundled with Redshift.

BodyPaint 3D and Cinema 4D Prime, Broadcast, Visualize and Studio editions have been discontinued as of September 1, 2019. All features of BodyPaint 3D and the Cinema 4D editions are included in Cinema 4D R21 and will continue to be developed.

Perpetual Licence:

Perpetual licensing for Cinema 4D Studio R20 and R21 will still be available at pricing roughly equivalent to the current pricing of Studio R20. Since the MSA will no longer be available, perpetual licences do not include subscription benefits (Cineversity and upgrades). Perpetual licensing will be managed by the same activation system as the subscription so perpetual licences are transportable between computers.
