Ode to MAXON

Recommended Posts

I’ve been a long time lurker and want to devote my first post to praise MAXON for the amazing job they’re doing with C4D. I’ve been using C4D professionally for many years now and it is simply a pleasure to fire it up every morning. I really like it because:

 

1) I make a good portion of my income with it as a generalist 🙂

2) It is intuitive, powerful, versatile, elegant, stable and multi-platform (I use it on a mac)

3) Works really well with After Effects.

3) There are a tone of excellent plugins and render engines that complement its feature set: Arnold, Redshift, TurbulenceFD, X-particles, Realflow, etc…

4) Great community of users, lots of tutorials (love Cineversity) and good technical support when I need it.

5) I see C4D constantly evolving in the right direction. I know many cafe users have strong opinions about where the software should be heading, but I like what I’m seeing so far. It is true that for a number of years, while the new core was being developed, some important tools aged, but even so, the updates we got during those years contained very useful new tools that I use often, like the sculpting tools, the 3D tracker, team render, takes, tokens, Voronoi fracture, PBR workflow, Substance and Houdini engines, and oh yes… the cogwheel splines 🙂 And in these last couple of releases, I’ve really enjoyed the speed gains, UI redesign, volume modeling, node-based materials, fields, etc… I'm also glad there are more options now to pay for the software, but I really hope MAXON keeps selling perpetual licenses for a long time.

 

So congratulations to the MAXON team and Dave McGavran for the excellent work they’re doing. I’m really excited about the future of C4D.
