A powerful and versatile workflow

Cycles 4D’s material system is completely nodal, giving you the power to create unlimited materials and effects. INSYDIUM has designed the system with users in mind, making a modern nodal system that works and feels like an extension of Cinema 4D. You’ll find our nodes functional, easy to use and incredibly fast.


Flexible Nodes

  • Each individual setting has its own slider bar which works smoothly.
  • For precise numbers, double click and add specific values.
  • If you wish to use keyframes, you can.
  • Double click on nodes to collapse them automatically, you can hide input and outputs that aren’t in use.
  • Make custom nodes by using the powerful grouping system.
  • Building an extensive node tree does not slow down or cause lag in the Node Editor.
  • Three types of Connections between nodes - Small tangents, Bezier or Linear connection.



Lighting and Texturing

The latest speed improvements in the Cycles 4D Real-Time Preview and Node Editor have raised lighting and texturing in Cinema 4D to a new level.

Cycles 4D is compatible with PBR texturing software such as Substance Painter and Designer so creating your own 'look' is fast and easy.

Micropolygon displacement can influence very tiny surface details. Cycles 4D volumetric lighting lets you simulate highly realistic atmosphere effects.

Cryptomatte support makes working with hundreds of compositing objects a breeze. Extracting multiple render elements such as diffuse colour, glossy, transmission colour, emission and Z-depth gives fine control over the image at compositing stage.
