The last time I used C4D, it was version 10 with Bodypaint. I want to come back to C4D but have no idea which version would be a good fit.
What I want to do -
build stylized models (characters, vehicles, and props), for comics.
create dynamic poses.
render in a 2d/toon style.
I’ve been using Animation Master; so if C4D offers spline modeling then that would be awesome, and carrara pro for rendering. Its a beast importing spline based models then having flip and adjust normals, etc.
Does C4D prime come with bodypaint, and will I have to get a special plug-in to add bones? I remember there being a sketch and toon plug-in sold separately so no problem there.
Thanks for your help, and I apologize if this question is too vague.
p.s. will also submit this question via Maxon’s contact form
