Important Note

By default, Cinema 4D 2023.1 will install to the folder “Maxon Cinema 4D 2023” and will replace any installation already there, including Cinema 4D 2023.0. This is intentional in order to minimize the number of builds customers need to manage, minimize migration of prefs and plugins, reduce overall disk usage and help ensure you’re always on the latest release. You can of course customize the installation path if you’d like to maintain a separate installation of each dot release.

If you need a prior release installer, visit www.maxon.net/downloads

Other Notes

  • Cinema 4D 2023.1.0 includes a modified version of Redshift 3.5.09. Upgrade to 3.5.10 or later for the most recent features and fixes, including improved support for MacOS 13 Ventura.

  • Standalone installations of Redshift 3.5.09 are not fully compatible with Cinema 4D 2023.1.0. Users will see a popup warning when starting C4D if this incompatibility is detected. Please upgrade to Redshift 3.5.10 or use the native Redshift installation (delete the /plugins/Redshift folder).

  • Redshift 3.5.10 and later are not compatible with 2023.0.0 or 2023.0.1. Please upgrade to Cinema 4D 2023.1.0 for ongoing Redshift compatibility. Prior C4D releases (21-26) are unaffected and are fully compatible with Redshift 3.5.10.
