c4d procedural (0-00-08-21).png


C4D procedural is an umbrella term for a number of techniques in cinema 4d to create models from sets of rules.The set of rules may either be embedded into the algorithm, configurable by parameters, or the set of rules is separate from the evaluation engine. Procedural models often exhibit database amplification, meaning that large scenes can be generated from a much smaller amount of rules. If the employed algorithm produces the same output every time, the output need not be stored. Often, it suffices to start the algorithm with the same random seed to achieve this.
