For the first time in a lot of years, I decided not to renew my C4D Maintenance contract. The expiration always comes up just before a new release and I decided not to roll the dice this time. When I got the announcement this morning....I was mostly scratching my head about what these features even do(for me, a hobbyist). In R16, about the only major new feature that I liked was the Motion Tracker, which I find is good enough for my needs. I didn't really like the new material setup. I find the C4D is mostly useful to me through the plug-ins (X-Particles, TFD). I wonder....will this be the end of Cafe C4D? Without C4DKiwi...well, it won't be the same.
