I started to make my first steps as a designer about 2 years ago and my passion gives me the possibilities to grow up in architectural visualization field. Now I work with Cinema4D for modeling and compositions, rendering is done with Corona Render and Vray. For the post-production, I always use Camera Raw in Photoshop that allows me to treat my renders like real photos.
V-RayforC4D 3.4 was released in December 2016. It is seamlessly integrated and optimized for both CPUs and GPUs, using whatever an artist picks to deliver high-quality imagery and animation quickly, even when working with complex 3D scenes.
NVIDIA introduced the NVIDIA Iray Cinema 4D rendering plugin.
I prefer to spend less time in 3d-software and more in postproduction. For me Photoshop is the best render engine.
The C4Dome-2 plugin was specially developed for Cinema4D R15 and R16 and, like its predecessor, is a HDRI toolset that contains a wide range of corresponding presets that produce outstanding results even without tweaking.
