Stage is a Cinema 4D plugin and provides a toolkit to organize and control a large number of light fixtures. Useage of presets for all functions of lights gives a fast way to generate different looks. Create your own library of fixtures and connect them to presets.

The design process with the Stage Plugin give us tools to focus on the creative idea.
Try ideas without waste time and find the best solution in a full 3D environment.

Thomas Gerdon CEO - GERDON design

The Stage plugin for C4D was instrumental in providing quick real world lighting scenarios that were able to be rendered directly into the final deliverable. This workflow allowed the sharing of a common language from the show world to the design world as client requests for atmospheric effects and ballyhoos were easily accommodated.

CJ DavisCreative Director Quince Imaging, Inc.

We already started last year using Stage Plugin. In the meantime we got measurable advantages not only by using this tool but by the successful cooperation with it’s developers too. A better economy in time as well as an increase in quality in the Renderings and the resulting Visualisation shows a significant rise. Stage offers us the chance not only to control and preset all lighting parameters offered by Cinema 4D but to store whole looks too.
