I'm going to be making a short CG film and I'm looking to invest in a high-end workstation. I'll be totally honest - I know very little about how Cinema 4D performs, hardware-wise, and I'd greatly appreciate if someone could explain it simply to help me make my choice.
What factors most into the speed of C4D rendering the Viewport & in the Picture Viewer: the graphics card(s), the processor(s), or something else?
What is the difference between GPU & CPU rendering? Is one better than the other?
Can you recommend a great C4D workstation?
I've looked into the new Mac Pros and 3DBoxxes, but I want to hear opinions before diving in. Thank you very very very much!
