How to Customise Your Layout in Cinema 4D


3D programs can be a bit of labyrinth of buttons, menus and icons to start with. One of Cinema 4D's greatest assets is its ease of use. Not only is it a user-friendly piece of software to pick up out of the box, but it's also fully customisable, down to what you want in your own menus!

What's on Your Menu?

You are able to customise Cinema 4D's menu system really easily. In the following video, I show you how easy it is to just create a new menu, and add what you want to it!

Palettes to Suit Your Palate

Not only can you control what you have on your menus, but you can also adapt the icon layouts too! I spend a lot of time adding in Cloner objects to my scene, and I finally decided to update my layout, so I thought you might find this useful too!

In this video, I show you how easy it is to create your own icon sets and how to ensure that they load up each time you start Cinema 4D.
