Freelance generalist (though a good chunk of my work is theatre backdrops, product/sales viz and teaching). I use the built in render engines 99% of the time, but I’d like to move to another engine at some point, but the pro:con ratio takes away too much for me right now. Plus if im honest, I see far too many people switching render engines with the reasoning that c4d’s internal one is holding them back, when in reality they just can’t light or texture for shit. eg. the number of vray users Ive encountered that never even go so far as finding area lights/shadows or global illumination is staggering; though a lot of these suffer from ‘low expectation syndrome’ where they’ve come over from another 3d app where buying a third party engine was just expected.
I use it with the usual suspects, photoshop, after effects
