Cinema 4D / BodyPaint 3D 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 now also available online. We hope you enjoy using the new online documentation for Cinema 4D!
