How to Use Variables for Rendering in Cinema 4D

Jonas Pilz covers using variables in the output path for easy rendering in Cinema 4D.

Check out this new quick tip from Maxon’s Jonas Pilz (@jonaspilz3d) that shows how to use variables in the output path for rendering in Cinema 4D. It’s a great way to add file paths and names, like the current camera, the take, the date, the time, and many more to the file path name.

Render tokens are a way you can automate file naming and other tasks while rendering in Cinema 4D. The Tokens will automatically replace the variables with attributes like the project name, camera, take, and additional relevant information. The tip is working with Cinema 4D S26.1.
