CINEMA 4D S22 What's New


With Cinema 4D S22, subscription users get early access to key enhancements in UV unwrapping and editing workflow, viewport technology and more. If you've struggled with UVs in the past, you're going to love the new workflow advancements. With unified component modes and improved selection tools, you’ll enjoy the Cinema 4D artist-centric workflow you’ve come to expect. If you'd rather not mess with UVs, you'll really appreciate the easy new Automatic Unwrap option.

The 'S' in S22 stands for 'Subscription'. S22 refers to a release being available for Subscription only. Maxon will release several upgrades per year for Subscription. Perpetual Cinema 4D users can expect a Perpetual upgrade once a year. Alternatively, Perpetual users can sidegrade to Subscription now and will be up to date while keeping their Perpetual as a second older license.

Features Cinema 4D S22

  • IMPROVED UV UNWRAPPING Progressively unwrap your 3D objects by pinning points, selecting edges to use as seams in either the 3D or UV window, and clicking the new UV Unwrap Command.

  • AUTOMATIC UVs Generate automatic UVs that make the most of your texture resolution - great for baking maps for export or simply getting a jump start on the 3D painting process. Thanks to the Ministry of Flat Technology developed by Eskil Steenberg of Quel Solaar, you can generate great UVs with a single click.

  • VISUALIZATION See your seams in the 3D view while unwrapping, easily spot distorted or overlapping elements, and visualize your UV map with the help of multi-color islands or a UV checkerboard.

  • EFFICIENT PACKING Arrange UV islands efficiently thanks to new packing options that take full advantage of texture space.
