Free 3d Models for Cinema 4D

Everyone Can Learn CGI

Maxon’s Cinema 4D software allows anyone to easily learn CGI (Computer Generated Imagery). The Pixar movies are probably the most famous example of this technology but the same software programs that are used to make Buzz and Woody are also used to create Megatron and many other special effects.

You Don’t Need to be a Geat Modeller
The best thing about the wide-spread use of programs like C4D is that it has brought together a whole community of artists who want to support each other and help each other. You don’t need to build your own models because there are THOUSANDS of great modellers out there who are already sharing their models for free! See the Iron Man image to the left? Someone built that and shared it with us all for free. I colored it, textured it and posed it in a scene and an animated short film. All for free. (note: the image quality shown here is poor but the actual model is crisp and movie-quality)
