I am interested in picking up 3d as a hobby. Right now I am using a base model macbook pro 2017. Which 3d software would run best on this? I am going to use this software to learn with.
>>650195All of them run considerably worse than their counterparts on Linux and Windows and it only gets worse from here on because of their absolute shitty decision to ditch OpenGl in favor of their crappy metal.Your best choice is probably Cinema4d since they have the largest customer base on Mac so their product has to be more polished. It is also one of the best starting points to enter the 3d world. Blender isn't a bad choice either if you have no aspirations to do 3D professionally, but its harder to learn.
If by Mac you mean the computer and not the operating system, you can dual boot on Windows or Linux and use Maya/3ds/C4D/Houdini on it (not all of them work on both).
>>650195As a hobby you say, then blender it is.
