Cinema or Max?

Which one is better for artistic work, mostly photorealistic and fantasy scenes?

What do you think about modeling, rendering and special atmosphere creation feature sets in both of them?

And what about the learning curves?

Thanks for your help.

I have been using C4d xl7 It works really well and is very user friendly. if you go to the maxon.net site, you can see that they have alot of improvements with the C4dxl8 bundle.

Max has better (more complete) modeling tools, but that doesn't mean that your modeling options in C4D would be limited compared to Max.

When it comes to materials, then C4D has a better (standard) material system.

And when it comes to rendering, C4D is indeed faster than the (standard) Max render solution. Of course, if you take Mental Ray into account (included in Max 6), then the picture changes, but Mental Ray isn't the easiest solution around.

C4D is the most entry-level solution of the available professional 3D solutions.

To summarize: you're probably better of with C4D, because it's easier to learn, allows you to do the same or more as others, and is not as expensive as the others.

Kind regards and good luck,
Bara

P.S.: if modeling is a primary concern, then you should check out the plugin Mesh Surgery on the following site: http://www.tools4d.com/
