CINEMA 4D or 3ds Max for Motion Graphics?
If you're a motion designer, chances are you've had some experience in a 3D application. While motion graphics rely heavily on programs like After Effects to create interesting pieces that help communicate or sell something to the audience, you also need to integrate 3D elements into the design. Since 3D has found its way into a lot of motion graphics, you'll need to find a 3D program to integrate into your pipeline. So the question now is which program do you choose? Two popular 3D applications among motion designers are 3ds Max and CINEMA 4D. Each program has its benefits and drawbacks, but is one better for accomplishing great motion design than the other? To help answer this question, let's take a deep look at each program to learn about their strengths and to help you decide which application to invest in, 3ds Max or CINEMA 4D. Before you decide on which application to choose, you should know the type of 3D work you're going to be doing for your motion graphics. The level of complexity of your projects can help you determine which program you need.
