One-click to launch D5 Render in C4D

  • Import your models into D5 Render to start real-time rendering.

  • If the model file has some changes, we can either sync the changes into the D5 scene or create a new D5 scene file.

Model/Material/Scene Sync

  • After the current model has been edited in C4D, quickly sync the new model and materials to D5 Render with the Sync button, while keeping the materials and scene parameters that have been adjusted in D5 Render.
    • Support the sync of C4D standard materials.
    • Support the sync of Octane materials.(Blend material, toon material and procedural textures are not supported)
  • Support the sync of cameras.

View Sync

  • Keep the view of C4D and D5 Render consistent in the perspective view.
  • Support one click to turn view sync on or off.

Light Sync

  • Support the sync of point light, area light and spot light.

Camera Animation Sync

  • Added Camera Animation Sync feature. Supports syncing selected camera animations with keyframe information from Cinema 4D to D5 video editor with the livesync plugin.
  • Supports batch sending of multi-selected cameras into D5 each as a separate shot, with environment, post effect and camera adjustments enabled.

Export .d5a

  • D5 Render does not support directly opening .c4d files, but we can convert .c4d into .d5a format through D5 Sync for Cinema 4D, and then open .d5a files in D5 Render.

  • Export the whole file or selected objects only.


  • Support adjusting the texture bake resolution when sync-ing or exporting models
