This is an excellent general-purpose 3D pkg, with strong third-party plug-in support, support for most popular render engines, etc. Great non-destructive workflows for modeling, CA, etc. Also has efficient, powerful hard- and soft-body dynamics, nodal particle system support, and much more. R19 adds strong real-time viewport and visualization capabilities, serious improvements of various modeling workflows, and more. Also, R19 actually came out at beginning of Septemeber (as did R18 before it, and so on, for years now -- C4D is on an annual release schedule, where releases occur in September), not December as listed here.

I think we need some more current / recent reviews on this software. Seems that it is not getting much love here from the MU community.

I really love this program. It is fast and intuitive. Hope, the price will drop down in the future. So far, I can not afford myself to buy it.

I could not get the update to install. I followed the included instructions, but Cinema 4D acted like there was nothing to install.

This application C4D R11 is simply SUPER ! Exactly what I need ... Issue I only have is, that I have received tutorial DVD which does not play and customer support knows about it but replacement is not even on horizon ... Also I have a problem to locate a DVD Tutorial better say DVD which will have a collection of ideas and hints how to use this application effectively ...

Maxon should be applauded for their dedication to being at the bleeding edge of Mac development...as well as making THE best 3D app out there... Check out the VrayforC4D plugin for Cinema4D too...

This is not the Cinema 4d 9.5 updater. They charge money for that. This is the 9.5 language installer, which just installs all the different languages after C4D has been updated. That should really be made more clear

I use Cinema, formZ, Lightwave, Maya and Vectorworks and although they all have their strengths.......Cinema is my wepon of choice, it is easy and intuative to use, it gets better all the time and the maxon support team are great. Anyone that uses this product knows how good it is.......well done maxon (and no I dont work for them)

I needed a 3D app for some not so regular work and since I's not my normal area of work i tried a lot of demos and decided to buy C4D. It works just great and it's easy to learn the basis. I think it's a good software for the price.... althought the Flash exporter needs some work.

Cinema 4D is the easiest, best 3-D app for the mac right now. Maya is better if you're working in a high-end vfx facility doing VERY specific things, but C4D is much more approachable. I find it to be very easy to learn and use, fast, and it renders beautiful images with very little work. IMHO, it has taken the top spot on the mac away from ElectricImage.
