"Cinema4D is the best of the best!"
What do you like best about Cinema 4D?
The simplicity of the software and the efficiency and the quality of graphics we can create out of it. The tools like Mograph is impressive and the integration with After effects is awesome.
What do you dislike about Cinema 4D?
The Redshift is too costly. The bundle of Maxon One is very costly, though it has many plugins. There is no proper trial version too. Only disadvantage I see is the support for Redshift and no other renderers.
What problems is Cinema 4D solving and how is that benefiting you?
CInema 4D produces faster results. Always a great tool for shorter deadlines. We can achieve great outputs using the mograph tools. The possibilities are endless.

"Cinema 4d is best beginner friendly 3d software compared to other 3d software's out there."
What do you like best about Cinema 4D?
The integrated renderer in cinema 4d is both fast and effective. The learning resources are vast and you can learn simple techniques and also complex things like VFX in both a fun and professional way.
What do you dislike about Cinema 4D?
The software is a bit pricey for beginner designers. Without proper guidance, the interface is overwhelming to users. Users most of the time use only 10% of the tools to get their designs done, the other 90% of tools are unknown and useless to some users.
What problems is Cinema 4D solving and how is that benefiting you?
I use Cinema 4d to design some basic models like Solar panels, Wind turbines, and sometimes architectural materials for my company projects and also for my personal projects. I am learning more about this software day by day.

"Comfortable work environment for small and large projects."
What do you like best about Cinema 4D?
Cinema 4D has impressive tools, especially for animation. But what first caught me was the clean and visually comfortable work environment. You can spend hours working on your 3d project without getting tired, inside Cinema 4D it's a pleasant activity.
What do you dislike about Cinema 4D?
The modeling tools are good enough but they can improve, especially retopology. If you need a quick and automated solution to retopology your model, it can be complicated with the tools available in Cinema 4D alone.
What problems is Cinema 4D solving and how is that benefiting you?
I feel comfortable in Cinema 4D from the first day of use, its intuitive interface makes the tools easy to access and provides a smooth workflow. I create animations daily where it requires several hours of work, and it doesn't make me tired.

"Exceptional Modelling software, unmatched abstract art output"
What do you like best about Cinema 4D?
Things that I like about Cinema 4D are 1. It is straightforward to learn 2. The viewport can be configured according to other applications like 3Ds Max 3. The tools are modeling friendly 4. It is very well equipped and loaded with most of the tools and features for 3d graphics 5. Easy to export files to other formats 6. It has a built-in render farm (team Render) 7. It is super stabl
What do you dislike about Cinema 4D?
1. It is super expensive 2. Bodypainting and UV Texture editing needs to improve 3. Render output is not as good as other Softwares 4. It crashes in heavy scenes 5. Not suitable for developing interactive animation
What problems is Cinema 4D solving and how is that benefiting you?
Cinema 4D is a very easy yet advanced 3D Modeling and simulation application. However, it is very useful in 3d modeling but has a few problems when it comes to pricing the software, texturing UVs, animations, and rigging the model. It is hard to integrate with games.

"Best Program to Dip your feet into 3D"
What do you like best about Cinema 4D?
I like that is pretty friendly program for one to get into 3D modeling, animation and rendering. I was able to immediately get a pretty good results and able to turnaround projects. It has really help elevate not only my personal artistic abilities, but in help the company create pretty realistic product images. I also am please that it integrates pretty well with Adobe After Effects and Adobe Illustrator. I was able to use these programs that I am familiar with and seamlessly use it with Cinema4d which help with familiarizing myself with the program. It was also able to deal with dwg and that was a boon in creating animations.
What do you dislike about Cinema 4D?
For the basics it is intuitive to get what you need done, some of the more difficult animation and effects take some time to learn and find. Thankfully there is a lot of tutorials (Cineuniversity, youtube, Lynda, and forums) makes it a great community to learn with others and make it easier to use. Rendering time, this is a problem across all 3d programs IMO. When you use Mograph, and booles heavily it slows down the preview animation so much. I have to often merge objects into one and flatten materials to help it move in real time. I deal with this a lot not just with Cinema4d but Adobe After Effects. With more RAM, better processor, etc this can be overcome.
What problems is Cinema 4D solving and how is that benefiting you?
It helps in creating products images, I use to do and still do product photography. With Cinema4d I can set different environments and effects to elevate the product images. This has help not only in that regard, but in being able to go back and get the exact angle/style for different people such as engineers, product managers, and marketing are just some of it. It has really help elevate our visual marketing assets.

"Powerful and Easy"
What do you like best about Cinema 4D?
C4D is a very versatile software and at the same time it is very intuitive and easy to use even for who approach it for the first time. In addition the R21 introduces a lot of great features for animation and modelin.
What do you dislike about Cinema 4D?
I don’t appreciate the new pricing policy that force user to pay monthly for a non competitive price compared to the perpetual license.
What problems is Cinema 4D solving and how is that benefiting you?
C4C allowed me to switch form 2D animation to 3D Motion Graphics improving my daily workflow.

"The Motion Designers best 3D Toolkit"
What do you like best about Cinema 4D?
When it comes to motion design, Cinema4D sits easily amongst the top 3D model and rendering platforms. Where other tools thrive on the perfect visualization of physical rendering, C4D soars with flying colors above the rest for motion graphics. The ease of jumping right into modeling, the efficiency of the UI, the ease of rendering dynamic simulations, all lend themselves to the overall wonderful experience of working in a 3D program.
What do you dislike about Cinema 4D?
As powerful and impactful as C4D is, this tool comes at a hefty price. Thankfully and after my time in the industry, Maxon (the makers of C4D) now offers a new subscription program that reduces the overall cost to the end user - making it more accessible to hundreds of thousands of designers around the world. The only way we had access was to a small select few who could afford to shell out a few thousand dollars or have access to it via our companies/businesses. But now, it’s a great tool accessible to the masses. I’ll be happy to see what comes of this change in the years to come.
What problems is Cinema 4D solving and how is that benefiting you?
Having a 3D tool that can handle a variety of workloads has been super helpful in my industry. The biggest benefit provided was the Team Render Client, a node-based rendering tool that distributes render jobs to a series of nodes. The more we build, the more powerful it becomes. There is no limit to this power and for that we are grateful.

"Cinema 4D, advanced modeling and motion graphics."
What do you like best about Cinema 4D?
Cinema 4d is one of the best and most intuitive 3d modeling and motion graphics software. a robust and mature 3D design and animation software that evolved since the first production. I spent several weeks immersing myself in the software, in conjunction I subscribed to Maxon’s online Cineveristy; followed Maxon’s Twitter feed; and watched lots of free Cinema 4D YouTube videos.
What do you dislike about Cinema 4D?
In fact it is a very complete software, maybe it would improve its library of plugins or available plugins of maxon. Generally I have found that C4D can handle larger scenes, certainly in the viewport. HOWEVER, when comparing C4D's cloners to Modo's replicators: In this instance Modo can handle a MUCH higher number replications.
What problems is Cinema 4D solving and how is that benefiting you?
3D modeling, Archviz, Motion graphics, Packaging. Almost any task that includes 3D whether modeled, vfx, tracking, mograph, the truth is a complete software and I use a lot. Undoubtedly if there is something that I love doing in Cinema 4D is the 3D intros animation.
