Like the summer follows spring - or should I say the winter follows fall? - we have reached that inevitable point where the words in the incredibly passionate C4D community have turned personal and dark.
Must we gentlemen - and ladies - resort to such words? We who have toiled with C4D - have carried it along, as it has carried us - must we abandon it in spite of the slings and arrows of a slow viewport and other inequities? After all, it has served us well and true for many years. And should the need arise to journey down a separate path from our true friend, shall we not bid it a fond farewell, instead of sneering at it with contempt?
Must we think the worst of each other, that a comment is taken in the worst possible way? Can we not help our fellow artist out by asking for a clearer explanation for some point, instead of landing a verbal punch and heading triumphantly into our corner of the boxing ring?
Let us celebrate our limitations as an opportunity to do better, not as a weakness to be shunned or ridiculed. And let us pray to the pixel gods that we did, in fact, hit “save” before some regrettable misfortune befell us.
