Introduction

Cinema 4D ( C4D )

- CINEMA 4D or C4D is a 3-D application that is popular amongst matte painters in film production, largely due to the BodyPaint 3D functionality.

- Rendering is the process of generating an image from a model, by means of computer programs. The model is a description of three-dimensional objects in a strictly defined language or data structure. It would contain geometry, viewpoint, texture, lighting, and shading information. The image is a digital image or raster graphics image.
