Cinema 4D Program Documentation

3D for the real world

Our Goal is to create a powerful 3D application that meets or exceeds the wide range of expectations that our users have and to continuously improve the performance of our products. We also want our software to be intuitive to learn and use. These are the standards that our users have come to value.

Nevertheless, each software application that offers such comprehensive functionality needs good documentation that clearly and concisely explains in detail how each setting works. This can be made available in the application itself - or in a café, at the beach, or wherever the user needs to access this information. This is why the Cinema 4D documentation is web-based. We hope you enjoy using the new online documentation for Cinema 4D!

Your Documentation Team

The Help function offers comprehensive descriptions of all functions on more than 4,000 pages - direct and context-sensitive links to program functions. (Info).

The help can also be accessed outside of the application at


We also recommend as a supplement to the application documentation. Here you will find a wide range of videos that show you how to use Cinema 4D and focus on individual settings while simultaneously offering a good overall overview of the application features.
