Ii have downloaded a demo version, and I was amazed of what i could do, I made evrything I desired like wallpapers and they were all great. I have only taken 2 online tutorials of how C4D works and I have to tell you it was very easy. Everyone can do anything they like with C4D R10. I wish I had Full version of C4D. It's simply amazing.
this new software is great for some of the new ones from the old ones. the one thing i especially like is the little window so your could type in your frame that you wished to go to. it helps a lot to fix little problems that are wrong in my clip.
C4D has all a art director, a motion desiner, a 3D maniac will hever nedded whith the most user friendly interface, giving the chance for anyone to take full advantege off all of his features ! Sketch and send to the animartors without no special knoledge, create from the bottom to the top without no comlplicated knoledge . Simplicity at the service of creativiti .
Excellent, robust, all-in-one software package, even if just using the core feature sets and the now included Bodypaint 3 module. Add to it Mocca 3 (which I purchased also), and if you're a 3D modeler/character animator, virtually every major thing you'll need to create really high-quality 3D content and animation is here. A huge bonus is C4D's expandability via the modules (which are reasonably priced), and it's ability to work with Photoshop directly in Bodypaint. I highly recommend this software. I'm very pleased with my progress in creating 3D content with the use of C4D so far. --
Was a Strata user, but they rarely update the program and it's really way behind. Tried for a LONG time to learn Maya - way too complicated and overkill for our needs. Cinema 4D is very powerful while very easy to learn. I'm pleased so far.
Of all the programs I have used (and they have been legion) this is by far the best. I have been using it for a little under a year and I am loving every minute. The UI is very well layed out and totaly customizable. The lighting system coupled with Advanced Render produces spectacular photorealism, and the shading and texturing system leaves nothing out. With MOCCA advanced character rigs are easy to do. But by far my favorite feature has got to be PyroCluster and Thinking Particles. Talk about your powerful particle system! If you just bought the program and want to get some good tutorials, visit www.c4dcafe.com and www.3dattack.net. Enjoy!
I have only used one other 3-D program before, so I knew some of the principles of creating shapes and animating. Not a lot, mind you, but some.
I read Cinema 4D is easy to use and intuitive, but I haven't really figured it out yet. I hate to give it 3 stars since I haven't had much time to look at it, but they asked for a review so here it is.
My only thing with it is that there is no simple tutorial built into the help menu. I checked the internet and the tutorials seemed to be pretty advanced.
Overall, this seem like a really good product. I really like the fact they let you try the trial version before buying. If I had more stuff to do in 3-D, then I would buy some books on how to use it and get the non-trial version after I was satisfied.
