Cinema 4D 2024.0.0 Release

On September the 13th, 2023, Maxon Computer released Cinema 4D 2024.0.0. Alongside this release, a new Cinema 4D SDK and SDK documentation have been released, reflecting the API changes for 2024.0.0. For an overview of the features of Cinema 4D 2024.0, please refer to the fall release announcement.

The major SDK related changes in this release are:

  • The Cinema 4D C++ API has been modified substantially to improve scene execution timings. Most changes revolve around a more rigorous handling of the mutability of data. Heavily modified has been the cinema.framwork and particularly the NodeData type. See Migrating Plugins to the 2024.0 API for a detailed overview on how to migrate your plugins.
  • C++ change notes are now presented in a new (and automated) style in the C++ documentation.
  • Minor changes have been made to OCIO handling.
  • Cinema 4D 2024.0 updates its CPython interpreter to version 3.11.4.

For a more in-depth overview of the changes, please refer to the Python and C++ change notes.
