Who here C4D? Can we get some love for what is clearly the best all around graphics, modeling, and animation suite?
That's a funny way to spell Maya.
I love C4D, I'm using it from 4 years, I started with R11.5, now I am using R16... The physical render is cool and interface is like a body part to me now... The only problem is with rigging and making realistic render.... For other stuff I think its the best out there.....

It is not clearly the best, but it is moderately good...
If Maxon doesn't pull their shit together with R18 they're going to get hurt.
You mean Cinema 4d is a 'Johannes factotum'; 'Hansdampf in allen Gassen' a Jack of all Trades, but a master of none.
I'd go conform with that. Imho still the easiest to learn and fastest to get an result.
But it is becoming a gloriefied Plugin Hub.
Don't get me wrong i welcome the Houdini and Realflow pipelines, but C4D needs a serious update on its basics. Medelling/Texturing/Unwrapping/Scripting + everything else.
Maxon got seriously kicked in the face by vocal angry (ex-)customers after their R17 release, and i hope it will have an effect. They said that they'll listen and working on the core, but many users are still doubtful.
They are already ordering/taking painkillers.
