Powerful Rendering

Thea for Cinema 4D is the perfect companion for Cinema 4D users who want the highest quality photorealistic rendering inside their modeling application. The plug-in offers a list of advanced tools while being actively developed to meet the most demanding visualization requirements.

Superior Image Quality

In every work involving visualization, the natural way of lighting and physically correct materials play the most important role. Thea Render light simulation and our unique material system ensure that all your images will take advantage of these essential qualities. No matter whether you render a simple interior design or a detailed product presentation with complex materials the image will tell a whole story for itself. You can focus on your artistic expression while Thea will take care of the final result.

Interactive Render

While Thea Render supports interactive render region in Cinema 4D, it goes one step further with its own integrated darkroom, reacting much faster to user workflow. Camera and material changes are optimized so as to give the best interactive experience.

Material Lab & Libraries

Thea for Cinema 4D offers a variety of ways to add Thea Materials to your scene. You can create a new Thea material and edit it inside Cinema 4D or you can open Thea Material Lab for enhanced visually material editing. Our high quality material libraries are ready to use and just a drag-and-drop away from the content browser to your models.

Instancing Support

Cinema 4D offers various ways of instancing and we have paid attention to support them all, matching the native renderer. Whether you are using MoGraph cloners, arrays or render instances, the result will be always as it should be.


Thea Render can handle the animation rendering inside Cinema 4D and render all the frames out-of-the-box. Furthermore, by supporting Team Render (R15 only), one can distribute these frames over the network for ultra fast animation sequence rendering. (Note: animation export and motion blur are currently not supported.)

Texture Baking

With the automated texture baking, Thea Render is able to tackle all Cinema 4D native shaders and execute with the highest performance, by preparing all necessary bitmaps in advance of the rendering process. This way, complete scene export as well as network rendering can also be used when native shaders are involved.

Export to Studio

While the integrated plugin will suffice in most cases, it also comes bundled with our Thea Studio, a dedicated standalone application for Thea Render, perfect for further scene staging and material/lighting tweaking.

  Academic lab licenses are intended to be used for educational purposes only and they cannot be purchased by students. This is a single license that can be used for installation on up to 30 machines (license cannot be used for network rendering). They are single licenses, i.e. they can be installed and activated on one machine only. Proof of educational institute membership is required for confirmation prior to purchasing the product (a scanned copy of faculty ID along with university e-mail address is needed for teachers).
