Buying a GPU for GPU rendering? Read this first. I find myself answering the same questions over and over. So here is a summary of what you need to know when buying a GPU for GPU rendering. This information is valid as of writing this, I will try keep it updated as we go along.
Temporary disclaimer: The Nvidia 1080/1070 cards are currently not supported by any major GPU render engine. This will hopefully be fixed soon. (Blame nvidia)
Nvidia. All the gpu renderers are nvidia CUDA based.
Do you ever need to run various configurations of c4d on a regular basis? For example an install without plugins? Or perhaps you are beta testing a render engine, and you regularily need to switch between stable and beta version? Well here i’ll show you how to do that without duplicating your whole c4d install folder.
Cinema4D looks in 2 places for plugins/scripts/layouts etc. The first place is in the root folder of c4d. c:/program files/MAXON/cinema4d or wherever you have it installed. The se
This article is my personal opinion ( Im Aleksey from http://ace5studios.com), this question comes up a lot, so I’m going to try break it down here. This article is for people without any allegiances. I will attempt to break down why i made the choice that i made and depending on your situation which render engine would be good for your needs.

Ha-HA! Finally it is done! Marvin rigged for Cinema4D ! Thanks for Vector from http://www.va3d.co.uk/ for the awesome model! I just did some cleaning up on it to make it more rigging friendly.
