You can get Cinema 4D CE6 for free. Just get a trial version and then go here:
(not sure if it's still running...)

C4DCE used to be XL6 (circa 2000)
I wonder how well it runs in OS X.
its available in Computer Arts Magazine which may or may not still be on the news stands.

I couldn't find a CE download anywhere on maxon's site, and its been 5 years since I used XL6 so I don't know what feature it has, or doesn't have.

A free poly-reducer of C4D's caliber is surely a want, so I guess I have to head to the book store tomorrow and see if I can pay $13 for my "free" software.

Maxon dropped out of the consumer market for the last four years or so.
Maybe Cheetah3D made them rethink their strategy.

I though iGame3D scared them out of that market.

Could be...
I wish it had inspired them to make a game IDE with their cool tech before I started this mad mission.

Well, I did it. I have no idea whether I'll actually like C4D. Thanks for pointing this out.

Don't bother with CE6...

I've been a long-time C4D user (since before version 5) and currently have XL7 installed, but I only occasionally use it for rendering nowadays. Believe it or not Wings and Blender have better modelling and animation tools than XL7 (for game-type stuff anyway).

Don't get me wrong, C4D probably has the best UI out there, but you'll need v9 to get decent polygon tools. I couldn't justify upgrading when free stuff proved to be a more than adequate alternative.

I can't see where to actually download CE6 though. This seems kind of useless...

Get it in magazines. Apparently Computer Arts or crack Addict

This months has Cararra(sp?) 1.1 for free.

Click on register on the left. They claim you get the registration code within 2 hours. I assume you go to the download section, get it, and then use the # they send you.


Free Cinema 4D CE6 - Carlos Camacho - Feb 20, 2005 04:52 PM

That was quick. Got my number and download info. Use a REAL email.

BTW, if you like Star Wars, here is a nice short animation in Cinema4D:

OK, I take it back... I also can't find any download links. The email they send goes to a generic page. Sad

Hmm.. If anyone does see it on a cd following some magazine, please let us know in here. Ninja ..or the dreadful ninja will have to come and knock those maxon-people around until they put it up on their page.
