Great all-around 3D program.
I have had some experience with Maya, Blender, Lightwave, Modo and Cinema 4D. I would have to say that using Cinema 4D is the smoothest, most pleasant experience you can have with a top-tier 3D program. The workflow is just very carefully thought-out. It's not as powerful as Maya, but then if you're not working on a Hollywood blockbuster as part of a team, you probably don't need that kind of power. Spare yourself the aggravation of Maya's unfriendly interface. For a freelancer, this is more than adequate and it's a hell of a lot more fun.
