Maxon Ships Cinema 4D 8 Student Version

Software includes full XL Bundle components By Dave Nagel
Maxon has released the educational version of Cinema 4D 8. The new version is available for teachers and students, according to an information page on Maxon's Web site, and offers the full functionality of Cinema 4D XL Bundle with a non-commercial license. It's available for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

Cinema 4D R8 is available in a variety of configurations. Maxon says the Student Version is the full XL bundle, which, in addition to the core application, includes the Advanced Render, Pyrocluster, MOCCA, Net Render and Thinking Particles components. (The Net Render in the XL bundle allows for up to three clients.)

Maxon has also recently updated the core components of Cinema 4D 8, which was originally released in October. Improvements included full support for high dynamic range imagery in the Advanced Render module, which supports 96-bit images; faster OpenGL; the addition of 20 new nodes for the XPresso expression editor; enhancements to Flash and Shockwave output; import optimizations for NURBs models created in other applications.

The Cinema 4D 8 Student Version is available now as a download with PDF documentation. Pricing was not available at press time, and purchasers must qualify using a student I.D. Printed manuals are available at an extra cost. For more information, visit
