I can do some ships, sure! I will make some small random craft for backgrounds and populating skies to start. I want to get the building tutorial first though

Some tutorials would be awesome. They have the
Broadcast version of Cinema 4D where I intern.   I
definitely will check it out.

Thanks for the models and the great help! I hope to
use them soon.

The Broadcast version should have everything I use. Broadcast is just geared more for motion graphics but the core program is all the same.....you should have MoGraph in the version which is VERY fun to play with!

I'm working on the tutorial on lunch and tonight some more......I've never made a tutorial before so hang in there..lol

(I think a video tut would be easier but that can wait)

Regulus,
 my pleasure! I remember when I was starting out there was like NOTHING in the way of free downloads. . .hopefully some of the 3d beginners can use these to help them! Besides, I would LOVE to see what the artists here could do with my buildings (probably better than I could ever do...lmao!)

Milay,
BIG difference as they won't read each others native file type. Both can open 3DS and OBJ, but C4D files are strictly Cinema 4d and MAX files are strictly 3D Studio Max. The programs are quite similar in general capability. Each have strong and weak points, but both are 3D modeling programs at the core.


And you're right, making ships won't be too much different that buildings as they are both "greeble" based designs at heart. (If you don't know what greeble is, Google it or just look at the surface of the Death Star or the side of a Star Destroyer....lol)
I'm working on a small star fighter for mid to far distance shots... just a generic little thing to add detail to a scene, in no way a "center piece"...

Cinema 4D seem sot be a bit more "artist oriented" and 3DS MAX seems to be a bit more technical.

I personally prefer Cinema 4D because that is what I use at work and what I learned on.

Both are excellent programs.

If you are looking to do backgrounds and not so much modeling, try Vue. That is nothing but environments!

As far as I know, you really can't model too complex in Vue. Easier to just import models.

As an artist, I personally suggest Cinema 4D. Much more "artist friendly" I think.
