We, along with our co-sponsor MAXON Computer, are pleased to reveal the winners of the Inspired Visions Global Rendering and Animation Competition.

There were a large number of entries from around the world, with the most submissions coming from Germany, U.S., Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy. All valid entries were evaluated by a jury and a panel of judges, and a “Fan Favorite” was chosen by public vote. The winner in each category will receive a $2,500 USD Visa gift card. The winners are:

CINEMA 4D Animation Winner: “Modern uboot-kitchen” by Sina Grage.

Judges' summary: This well-modeled animation was especially creative in its use of colors, textures and lighting. The possibilities of the elements in the animation were also presented in an easy and convincing manner.

CINEMA 4D Rendering Winner: “Dinner @ Panorama Tower” by Lmcad Estudios de Animación.


Judges' summary: This CINEMA 4D Rendering is breathtaking. The designer combined extraordinary detail, excellent lighting, and depth-of-field control to create a sense of hyper-realism that makes it difficult to distinguish from a photograph. The placement of a colorful, out-of-focus image on the wall of a largely monochromatic space, and the careful use of shiny, subtly-colored textures in the table objects and furniture, create an attractive image of elegance and comfort.

Vectorworks Renderworks Winner: “Soundstone - house of music - Render for a Master thesis” by Nicolai von Stromberg.


Judges' summary: This simple rendering delivers an interesting, fashionable atmosphere. Through the use of color and composition, this design achieves a humanistic look.

Fan Favorite Winner: “Floating Olympic Village” by Julian Finke & Lena Dietrich, University of Applied Sciences, Detmold, Germany.


“This competition shows the impressive results users can achieve in rendering Vectorworks models within Renderworks and/or CINEMA 4D,” explains Dave Donley, Rendering Manager at Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. “We are continuing to work on technologies which further strengthen this partnership.”
