I'm looking to pick up a 3D modeling software, and from what I've read, Cinema 4D seems to be easier to learn for beginners than 3DsMax and Maya? I've tried the latter two before in a short course, but the complexity just seems overwhelming to me (IMO, probably even harder than drawing).
I've read that the Autodesk products are more for working in large teams since the software is built for that purpose (production pipelines etc.), and Cinema 4D is more for the individual freelancer / artist etc.?
My goal is to use a 3D software to make 3D versions of my art, like say, render a human figure or objects like props, vehicles etc.
So, my question is: is Cinema 4D worth the effort, or should I just take on 3DsMax / Maya again and endure the suffering? (I really hate the UIs of Autodesk products......never understood why you've to click a hundred different buttons just to apply a simple color to the model when you can just right-click and choose something like "Load image..." etc.)
