This is a rad tip handed to me by Patrik Larsson! Did you know you can customize where your objects spawn in Cinema 4D? You can manipulate this location using Workplane Alignments and you can even make the workplane snap to a custom polygon selection! This all sounds boring and confusing, but just watch the tip, it’s great and will blow your mind 🙂

Free Cinema 4D 3D Model Movie Theater

Remco is back, and he’s done it again. He’s giving away this really classic cinema movie theater model. It’s a 3D model for Cinema 4D, and it’s textured/lit with Arnold render. If you use a different render engine hopefully you can re-texture it without too much work. Huge thanks as always to Remco for sharing his fun creations with us. Feel free to use for personal or commercial use. Enjoy!
