Signal

What is Signal?

Signal allows you to instantly create complex animations with intricate loops, realistic noise, additive effects, and all with no keyframes.

Signal’s drag and drop procedural workflow makes complex animations easy and fun. Just drag any parameter onto the Signal tag and start animating.

Join over 3000 Cinema 4D artists already using Signal every day to improve their animation workflow.


A game changer for creating music based animations. Signal 1.5 helps create synced animations so much faster than before, allowing more time for creativity.


Easily Animate to the Beat using Signal BPM

  • Divide time into measures based off a set BPM.
  • Drive parts of measures via up to 16 different splines.
  • Divide Measures into up to 16 beats.
  • Highlight current beat based on current time.
  • Utilize Muting, Triplets, and various spline presets.
  • Add up to 32 Measures in a single tab.
  • Create cumulative effects via “Additive” BPMS.
  • Limit animation to particular measures with Strength over time.
  • Handy presets to get different spline types and measure divisions.

Create Stop Motion FX using Step (Quantize)

  • Step Time to modulate the incoming time.
  • Step Value to modulate the output value.
  • Global Step Time and Value in the Output tab.

 Now you can Time Remap Noise!

  • Time Remap option in Noise Tabs. Lets the noise pattern progress not just by time, but now by being driven by another Signal Tag.

omg….. this setup is genius… i already love it… it is going to speed up workflow on these types of videos sooooo much

Easily Create Seamless Loops

Create animated GIFs or looping audio-visual backdrops with ease. Set your loop point and everything stays in sync. Even noise.

Experiment With Your Animation

An animation is rarely perfect the first time. If you are like me, you set your keyframes and then continually adjust and tweak them to make them look just right. Or maybe the animation is almost perfect, but you just need a little bit of wiggle to make it look realistic. That’s where Signal comes in. Continually adjust and play with your animation without resetting any keyframes.

Preset Animation Curves

Ton’s of useful animation preset curves to help get you started. You can even create your own!

Not Just For PSR Animations

Position, Scale, and Rotation are no brainers, but you can apply Signal to ANY parameter in Cinema 4D.

Signal Scripts

Use our custom signal scripts to take control of your animation even further. Set random seeds or offset animation project wide using Signal Scripts.

 

Signal completely changed my way of thinking and conceiving animation, from the idea to the execution, thanks to the playful parametric workflow that allows me to achieve and manage complex animations easily. This plug-in is going to be a must-have tool for every motion designer really soon.

Reflectance got to be too complicated. Topcoat simplifies my life just like HDRI Studio did to help get the look I wanted.

I love HDRI Rig and Topcoat. The tools you provide are real time savers!

Topcoat is great for adding realistic wear and grunge layers that give objects that extra punch to look real.

I have TopCoat docked in my layout, I use it so much. I’m always throwing on and layering a few things. It’s optimized well, too.

Best HDRI’s on the Net I have searched everywhere!

HDRI Link simplifies workflow and increases productivity by easing the burden when transitioning between different rendering engines in Cinema 4D.

HDRI Link is a shortcut to the end of your HDRI scavenger hunt.

HDRI Link has become my go-to plugin when doing HDRI lighting in Arnold.

It’s hard to think that a tiny little tag can change your workflow so dramatically. But HDRI Link does just that.
