Indigo for Cinema 4D

Indigo Renderer works amazingly well with Cinema 4D. Our Cinema 4D plugin has been under active development for more than 8 years and has evolved into a powerful yet easy to use plugin for Cinema 4D.

Key Features

Fast, realistic and effortless

Indigo's easy to use material models make developing realistic materials a breeze.

Combined with unbiased, physically based GPU and CPU rendering and realistic camera apertures, you're ensured stunning image quality in very little time.

Interactive rendering

Tweak your objects, lighting and materials without delay using the built-in Interactive Rendering window. It uses the full quality Indigo rendering engine - what you see is what you get.

Indigo for Cinema 4D puts the capabilities of Indigo into the workspace you're familiar with.

Light Layers

Indigo lets you transform your lighting by changing colours, temperature and brightness of your light sources - without re-rendering. Create many variants, such as day/night versions, from the same image. Timelapse video by Andre Kostin (kklors).
