Seems like a good product
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.
