With the new Team Render, a simple click adds computers to a team and distributes complex render tasks over an entire network either manually or automatically via Bonjour, maximising on processing power and faster render speeds.

Sculpting directly onto any polygon model will also now be possible with R15, while the new Amplify brush will allow users to interactively inflate and use new draw modes to sculpt lines and areas defined by lasso, polygonal drawing or a rectangle. Artists can also use the new Project Mesh feature to adapt a simplified mesh to multiple sculpt objects to result in a new sculpt with an optimised edge flow and all the detail from the original sculpt.

For modeling, CINEMA 4D R15 introduces a highly customizable Bevel tool to create rounded corners with flexibility, and new capabilities have also been added to the comprehensive typography toolset over MoText and Text Splines to create complex typographic elements and animation.
